Picking a wedding band that you know you’re going to love can be tricky. While all the experts recommend you do as much research as possible and try to go see your potential band play before you book them, we all know that’s not always practical for a busy bride and/ or groom-to-be!
Which is why I love websites like Bands For Hire, who not only list hundreds of bands and performers, but have their rates, the regions they cover and style very clearly listed as well as MP3s and videos of performances all in one place. So instead of having to find the time to go gigs of bands that might not even be what you’re looking for, you can find out all you need to know from the comfort of your sofa.
To get you started, here are some of my favourites!
