FAQs about hiring Wedding Entertainers in Merseyside

Take the stress out of hiring musicians with Encore

What entertainment should I have at a wedding?

What entertainment you’d like for your wedding depends on your tastes as a couple, budget and overall vision for your big day. However, at Encore Musicians, we help thousands of couples every year in the UK plan entertainment for their wedding day therefore we are experts in choosing the right musicians for your big day. For ceremonies, it’s ideal to have musicians who can provide atmospheric background music, such as string quartets, harpists and singing guitarists. For the cocktail hour (or drinks reception), musicians such as jazz bands, acoustic duos or saxophonists, can provide a more upbeat ambience whilst still allowing for conversation amongst guests. Last but not least, for the evening party, you want musicians who can keep the dance floor full. Our Wedding and Party Bands give engaging, lively performances, or you can opt for a Wedding DJ who can create seamless playlists perfect for guests of all ages and tastes. For something a little bit different, consider Ceilidh Bands, a more unique, interactive form of entertainment or Soul and Motown bands, a timeless and classy option for couples who want something a bit more unique. Additionally, for a surprise element to wow your guests, consider singing waiters for unexpected wedding entertainment where the singers dress as waiters and then burst into song.
