If you have a strict wedding budget you may not be able to stretch as far as a band or DJ, and that’s ok you can still have a great wedding without one. Choosing your wedding music can be a fun DIY project for you and your future spouse. The easiest and most convenient method would be to set up a playlist on your MP3 player full of the tunes that mean something to you as well as some wedding classics. Most venues have an exceptional sound system so, although you won’t have a physical presence providing the music, you’ll still have a dancefloor waiting to be filled.
