What’s In or Out? DJ vs Band


In last week’s In or Out the winner was “dressy.” Evening attire is still very much in, regardless of the country, though we have seen this mixed in with the “theme” idea of having your guests follow a theme or dress code.

For this week, let’s talk music. I have seen a big switch around the concept of the “wedding band.” I have had more than a few clients requesting just a DJ. Most mothers still want the full wedding band, while the more hip daughters are perfectly happy with a DJ playing all their favorite songs. A few times, the daughters have gotten their way by reminding their mothers that it’s much more cost effective to go with a DJ. In your opinion, what’s in or out? Live band or DJ?
