Does it matter if I'm not having dancing at my wedding?
I don't have a dance floor and my wedding is during the day :)

It all depends on the vide you create the venue and your crowd. I don't think you have to have dancing. If you are able to cater / know what might suit those 3 items. However I have notice that out of these 3 items the crowd is the most unpredictable and may want to push the D-Floor.
Should we have a band?Susann K
We are struggling to decide whether to have a band at our wedding reception. We have the option as it's a friend's band and it will be either free or greatly reduced in cost. Things to consider: - They play exactly my fiance's taste in music - It won't cost much - It will make the friend happy to be included - The friend is my boss - The style of music clashes significantly with our 1930s vintage theme (we are having guests dress to the theme and our venue is also vintage styled) - It's the opposite of my taste in music - Some guests will love it, some will hate it - They won't be able to play our first wedding dance song as that will be jazzy (but we can play this over speakers) What should we do?

Hi, I think that its great to have a friends band in for a wedding if you are wanting that big party fun vibe. However they have to be able to tick few boxes for example reliable and good equipment and solid sets lists. Depending on the band and how professional they are, sometimes mates band are more laid back because they are getting paid less, they may also have longer breaks and drink all your beer haha! In the end if they are able to play the classic's everyone will love it, its way more fun having live music in particle if their good. I have played now a few weddings where the first dance was at the beginning, maybe you could sus a out a jazz band to come in for a couple sets prior and to playing you first dance. If you are able to find a compromise, your friends and family will love what you enjoy! All the best!
