  3. Would you pay extra for a band to travel to your event?
  4. Are you happy paying 20% extra to book through an agency or band listing website?
  5. Do you have any special requests?
  6. How much are you prepared to pay?

Once you are sure of your requirements, the task of finding your ideal wedding music band can begin! This itself can be an difficult task with many fantastic sounding bands around but not a great deal of current information.
