Wedding Bands Scotland

We thought that we'd put together a small guide of the useful issues you need to consider once you have lined up a wedding band in Scotland.

1. Check with the venue that you can use a live wedding band in Scotland.

Even though this may seem an obvious thing to consider you need to talk to the venue with regards to the style of live entertainment because some wedding venues could possibly be sharing facilities with other business for example galleries or even places of historical importance where they may place limitations on volume level and the size of the band. We'd advise that assuming you have confirmed this with them it's advisable to acquire a contact name and phone number for your band to use.

2. Talk with the band about the time they want to turn up and set up their equipment.

For a wedding reception in Scotland we would usually turn up sixty minutes ahead of the start time. This should provide us with lots of time to set up our equipment and sound check our equipment. The most common kick off time is 8pm so we would strive to attend your venue at roughly 7pm except in cases where otherwise stated. In case a client would like us to set up before to the meal there would be an extra cost for this.

3. Schedule

The band commonly play 3 hours inside of a four hour period, just like most wedding bands Scotland. Normal times usually are between 8-12am although this can be negotiable. In case the evening plan is running late the contracted timings would always apply unless the band agrees to play beyond the contracted finishing time.

4. Easy access to the wedding reception room.

It's critical that the Scottish wedding band are able to get comfortable access to the function room mostly for Health and safety. Long staircases and elevators can easily increase the period of time that it'll take for the band to transport the instruments and PA and so this could very well affect the schedule for the evening. If in the event elevators would be implemented it is vital that the band can have personal use of the lift for the precise time frame so that their get in isn't impeded in any way.

5. Wedding Band Requirements

Most Scottish wedding bands will want food and drink provisions sooner or later on the reception. Except it's for corporate entertainment the band can normally actually eat from the buffet typically provided for the friends and family, this could obviously be agreed upon in advance with the bride and groom.

Testimonials

AMAZING!!! So happy to have had The Vinyls play for our Wedding. They truly captured our guests and had them up dancing all night! Our first dance was fantastic, my fave was the atmosphere of the last dance though. All of my friends and family were very impressed and I believe one of my friends have booked The Vinyls already for her wedding in November. Great variation in the music played which suited all of our guests. I would not hesitate to recommend you. Thank you again for making our evening extra special :) Shirley-Ann Whyte, Dunfermline
