T HINGS TO G IVE THE W EDDING B AND Plan the Whole Day Out Give Your Music Choices Ahead of Time This is also a good thing to speak with them about. You want to know if they’re going to do both for you. You want someone that can give music throughout the whole thing. Seating Plans Might Be Required Make sure they know what time, day and where the venue is for the day. You want to make sure that they are there ahead of time, so they can setup and prepare. Find Out if They are Doing Both Ceremony and Reception Music If they’re going to be the master of ceremonies, you want them to know what to say and when to say it. They often already have somewhat of a plan, as they’ve most likely did it before, but it is always good to plan this out. Directions to the Venue Give the band your own music that you want to have played ahead of time. This will ensure that they have it on hand and can play the songs you want to have played during the times you want them to be played. Let Them Know What You Want Them to Say Make sure that they know what to expect and you know what to expect. By planning everything out ahead of time, everyone is in a comfortable position. Letting them know they’re welcome to the food and drinks provided, but also a seating chart, so they know where they should be presenting from or setting up at is always a good idea. Making them comfortable with their surroundings will put them in the best position. Anything Else They Want or Need You want to work with them to provide the items they need to make the music at your event a success. Make sure to give the items to them and smile, its your big day!
