Bands, Singers And MCs

Jan 01, 2021

The master of ceremonies, band and singer all contribute to the ambience of the wedding banquet. Whether a big celebration or an intimate party, allocating a portion of your wedding budget to hire these professionals is certainly a good decision.

To be sure you appoint those that fit your stylistic preference, consider the following :

  • Having made inquiries with friends, meet with the recommended professionals personally.
  • For entertainers, make it a point to view their prior performances. Study their playlists too.
  • For master of ceremonies, ensure that you have chemistry with one another. Check if he or she is bi-lingual, if that is a requirement.
  • If you would like to hire a singer, discuss song selections. Look into suitability of lyrics as well.
  • When negotiating, confirm job scope of the master of ceremonies and number of sets the band will be performing.
  • It would be a nice gesture to offer them food prior to the start of the function.
