You’ve booked the venue, you’ve made those Pintrest boards, and your dead set on a peachy-gold-with-white colour scheme for the day ;). Now it’s time to start booking some of your other essential wedding suppliers. Such as the all important wedding entertainment Melbourne and Yarra Valley!

Most couples want to make sure that the music they choose is not only amazing, but that their guests will be up and dancing. It’s often a mix of the music (and the bubby) that puts your friends and family into a nice relaxed party mood. So, what to choose? Sometimes it’s hard to choose between a DJ or a live music band for your wedding. We’ve detailed below ways that you can incorporate both forms of entertainment into the schedule on your big day. Ms Lexi & Celestial Band is a corporate function and wedding band, that provides full day live music for beautiful Victorian couples. We can perform as an Acoustic Duo or Soloist during the Ceremony and Canapes hour. Then we bring the energy up a notch with our live 4- or 5-person band for your reception. So how would a DJ work with a wedding band? Entertainment Options Well firstly, you could hire some of our musicians and singers to play at your Ceremony and Canapes hour. Then you could hire a DJ such as Matt Jefferies to play all of your reception music.

Another way to do it is to have our musicians at your Ceremony, Canapes hour, and then our live band for a few hours during dinner at the Reception. You might like to have the DJ play high energy dance music during the second half the Reception. Finally, another way to arrange the music at your wedding reception is to simply alternate the ‘sets’ the DJ plays and the live band. For example, the band plays for an hour, then the DJ plays for an hour, and on and on. That way your Reception is completely covered from start to finish the band and the rocking DJ booth!
