Smart Wedding Planning: Entertainment at a Low Cost
You most certainly could not avoid having to be conscious with your investments when it comes to your wedding planning venture. Especially when it comes to entertainment, this is where your approach would come in a tricky manner. One does not have to be so disappointed with having an underwhelming performance from a cheap surprise singer or entertainer in this case. This is one lucky day for you, as this read would provide you the points that you would greatly consider in your venture.
First and foremost, take a look around. One good approach is to do some comparison shopping with the help of the recommendations given to you by some relatives and friends. You must be keen in listening to what the entertainer or singer could give to you during the event. Although there could be some lower offers handed to you in your search, there are some higher amounts that could actually be worth the extra effort that they have put unto such performance. Keep in mind that you could do some negotiations with that individual if they are willing to, as that would very much give you more of a leverage on the situation you are presented with.
Always lay it out there to have a budget that could very much dictate a yes or no to that entertainer. Though they could not give you the whole performance that you have come to expect, they may have some alternatives with their services. One instance may have you present with only a number of performers or you could have a shorter performance in the process. A small band is actually already good to have for both the reception and ceremonial proceedings. Having to extend for a number of hours is actually not that costly compared to having a second band do the reception. Not only that, but having one band would have you set the same mood you are experiencing on the wedding through the reception. Always keep in mind that almost anything is rather negotiable. This brings you to the importance of having that entertainer of yours be focused on the job that is mainly needed for them to accomplish.
Prioritize the budget that have you set out for the wedding. You may as well have your guests enjoy some unexpected performances given out by secret singers or singing waiters in the wedding. It is not much of a bad idea to have a custom playlist be the whole entertainment during the proceedings. It is more of a viable choice for you to do than going for those costly bands or DJs around the block. But, there are instances wherein a couple may struggle to go about with their budget if they want to have the latest and ‘hippest’ bands play during their wedding day. This is where you would negotiate to those other sectors designated on your budget.
