Planning a Wedding in Ottawa or surrounding area? Quality Entertainment Explains the Difference between Hiring Live Music As Opposed to a DJ

At some point the issue of music will come up during your wedding planning. It is often a discussion of Live Music vs Wedding DJ as suppliers of appropriate vibes for your day. A trend I am seeing now is the choice of Live Music AND Wedding DJ’s, each for an appropriate part of the event.

No doubt about it: Music can make or break a wedding celebration. It is one element that crosses across the whole day. Music is the heart and soul of a wedding and can send your guests home with happy feet – or not! I’ve heard my share of poor string duos and bumbling DJ’s that ruin the moment.

The fact that you want to hire talent is a given. Finding that talent can be tedious and unreliable by polling friends, surfing online, shopping around with fine-tuned ears, and making a move quickly – top talent can get booked up to a year in advance.

The debate is often centered on whether to have live music or wedding DJ’s at your event. I find many brides and grooms are now selecting to use both.

A current wedding trend in theOttawa area is to have live music for the ceremony and cocktails. This is fabulous because musicians are adaptable – they can continue playing the song even though the flower girl took longer to walk down the aisle. They are more portable – they can play where there is no power for outdoor ceremonies. Musicians are more discreet for background music during the casual cocktail time.

Wedding DJ’s rock the reception for a hot dancing party. They have a wide range of tunes that will accommodate most audiences. DJ’s are savvy feeling the crowd as to what to play and when, to keep the party going. A great DJ is not the center of attention or a celebrity. They are masters of party central – staying in the background ensuring everyone has a grand time.

You may feel it a daunting task to find this range of talent that will be reliable and deliver quality music. When it comes to live music, Ottawa area brides and grooms know the importance of hiring an experienced and dedicated DJ; Quality Entertainment has a talented team of musicians and wedding DJ’s to accommodate any of your wedding entertainment needs.
