Welcome to Your Online Wedding Band Entertainment Guide
Wedding Band Entertainment is a vital part of any wedding. The ceremony is solemn and often spiritual, reflecting the momentous nature of the commitment you’re making. The party afterwards, however, is a time for letting your hair down and encouraging all your guests to do the same!
Just because a wedding is a formal occasion, it doesn’t mean it has to be sedated. There are many traditions and rituals attached to getting married, which you may or may not wish to observe, but essentially it’s about making a commitment to the person you love – and then celebrating it.
Wedding customs vary across Europe, to a greater or lesser extent, but it’s probably safe to say that one thing everyone in the European Union agrees on is that weddings are meant to be FUN!

Whilst we try to be flexible within our wedding entertainment plans, we suggest that wedding entertainment – particularly discos and live performers – is booked no more than a year in advance. Deposits should certainly be paid no more than a year in advance – ideally three to six months. As the day approaches, and becomes a reality, ideas on ideal running order and entertainment styles and content may change . We find there is an ideal timescale for booking, both from the customer and the performer’s point of view, and we guide our customers accordingly.
Booking your venue
After making your guest list, and before sending out your invites, you need to ensure you have your venue – this can be done first, and ideally a year before the date. Obviously at this stage you may wish to have an approximate idea of your day’s entertainment – whether disco, theme disco, classical accompaniment, rock and roll band or cabaret performances from our wide variety of artists. Whatever you book, make sure it is large enough to cope with your ideas, and check all the facilities offered.

Once you have your venue booked, invitations can usually be sent out.
By this stage, your idea of what you want for the day will be coming together – you will ideally need to book around six months before the day (Some performers do take bookings for a year or two in advance, but you need to be pretty sure that the band will still be together, the DJ will still be in the same area, or the act you choose will still be in good health – this is quite a long time in real terms!). At MantraSound we often book the evening’s disco (carried out by a specialist weddings DJ) or live band, and simultaneously work with you to select any other types of entertainment that interest you. We have a large database to choose from, and are also experienced at locating new performers for more unusual requests. Whatever you finally settle for, we will offer you a variety of similar performers at varying budgets, and will work with you in determining the precise combination of choices and cost which will satisfy you. All performers and wedding discos are backed up by contracts stipulating performance duration, content and cost. Wedding discos and wedding performers usually carry a booking fee in advance, with the balance payable on the night.
