It is hard to believe that summer is winding down. It’s only a matter of time before we are well into the fall and winter wedding season. With COVID behind us, many who had to postpone their formal wedding ceremonies are signing up to either finally tie the knot or have their party. That means this fall is shaping up to be one of the busiest wedding seasons ever. If you haven’t hired your fall wedding musician yet, now is the time. If you put it off any longer, you might just be making your own playlists. Here are just five reasons not to wait another minute!
The Music is One of the Most Critical Parts
Your wedding is special from the minute the guests enter the church until the minute that they leave the venue, but one thing that makes a big impact is the music. The musician you choose will set the mood of your wedding and will either have people on their feet dancing – or sitting and staring at their feet. If you wait too long, you aren’t going to have the musical atmosphere you want, and that can be a huge disappointment!
Dates Are Booking Quickly
With a return to socialization, weddings are back on again. That means that many who couldn’t before are now rushing down the aisle. Never before have venues, caterers, and musicians been in such high demand. If you want to make sure to coordinate it all, pick your priorities for dates. And if your musician choice is important, then book it now so that you can work the rest around it!
The busier a musician gets, the higher the price goes. With one of the busiest wedding seasons ever anticipated, the cost of your musician is going to be just one of many expenses. Budgeting is critical to ensure that you don’t overspend and aren’t still paying for your wedding when it’s your tenth anniversary. If you set your priorities at a specific number, now is the time to find a musician so that you know what the total cost of your wedding will look like, and you can accommodate the rest accordingly.
Destination Weddings Take a Lot of Arranging
In the Charleston area, destination weddings are highly popular – and that means a lot of revolving arrangements that have to be made. Things like hotels, venues, spaces, and wedding rehearsals all have to coincide perfectly for your day to go off without a hitch. If you are coming into town or asking guests to, getting your musician squared away is a critical part of making your day that much more special!
More Than Just the Reception
Often, couples want a musician who can entertain people for more than just the reception, which means they need a variety of musical talent. Not all musicians are going to be able to accommodate the spaces that you might need to fill. Looking around for a versatile and gifted musician is going to take some time, so set enough time aside to find the perfect fit!
