What are the pros and cons to hiring a DJ versus hiring a wedding band?

There are several pros and cons to hiring a DJ vs. a band. For one thing a band is typically more traditional and usually more expensive than a DJ. They also take up more space so if you have a small stage that is definitely something you will need to consider. A band is always nice because it’s more of a show and live music creates a more tangible and romantic feel than a DJ does. But on the other hand, a DJ can play any song you want. It’s a matter of taste and budget so think wisely. Don’t forget about specialty bands as well like Spanish guitar or harp players.
