How do I find a good wedding band?

A Sometimes the key to unforgettable wedding music is hiring a great band for your reception. There are a few reliable ways to find a good one. Ask your friends, for starters. See if they’ve been to a wedding recently with an awesome band or singer. If not, talk to the consultant at your wedding venue (or your planner, if you have one). He or she has probably seen a lot of good and bad wedding singers perform, and wedding planners know a lot about the wedding music industry. This is actually one of the reasons to consider hiring a wedding planner. If you have absolutely no idea where to start when it comes to finding great vendors or you just don’t have the time to spend listening to prospective bands, a planner would not only help you narrow down a list to choose from, she can also hear them out before introducing you to the top picks.
