Modern Bride Magazine: Entertainment is 5% of your Wedding Budget, but TWICE as many guests will remember your entertainment, more than anything else!
The numbers don't lie...
The cost of entertainment at your reception is only a small portion of your overall budget. As Modern Bride Magazine states above, only 5% of your overall budget will be spent on entertainment. However, over 50% of your guests will remember the performance of your disc jockey more than anything else at your reception. Think back to the last affair you attended, what did you eat? What Color was the Napkin? What was the guest of honor wearing? The Chart Below shows you what was spent compared to how well it will be remembered....
When you're spending thousands of dollars on a once-in-a-lifetime event, doesn't it make sense to reserve the finest entertainment, especially since it is only 5% of your over all budget??
Yes, your Gown & your Food are very important. Still, the selection of Music & Entertainment can determine the success of your event!
A qualified Wedding MC can guarantee your guests will stay after dinner to party; the Photographer & Videographer will have something to shoot & your guests will stay long enough to really remember your gown!
Here is a Chart that shows you Popular Wedding Seasons, what does this mean to you? Either avoid booking those times to save money or make sure you book all your vendors early. Because all the great vendors will be booked sometimes up to a year or more in advance! You don't want to be "stuck" with who is left! There is usually a good reason why a vendor is not booked 2 weeks before your wedding!
Good Luck with all your Planning but remember that sometimes the smallest overlooked detail may have the largest impact on the SUCCESS of your Wedding Reception!
