Finding the perfect wedding entertainment can seem like a daunting task. Should you choose a band or a DJ? And what about live music throughout your drinks reception, wedding breakfast or the ceremony itself? You want music that you and your guests are going to love, but where to start?! Going through an agency, like our friends Tailored Entertainment, can take away much of the hassle when it comes to the nitty gritty of actually making a booking. To make matters even easier, they have a massive choice of sensational bands in a huge range of styles, perfect for any wedding theme and satisfying even the pickiest of music lovers! 

We asked them for some of their fave bands to suit all types of wedding, from chilled out acoustic sets to funky soul bands...

Festival Style Wedding Entertainment 

Looking for a touch of Mumford and Sons to really set the scene for your fab festival wedding? Want that perfect rockin’ laid back atmosphere to get your guests dancing all night? We’ve got you covered. Check out our fantastic festival headliner-style bands like Festival Nights or Smith & Sons to give your friends and family a night they’ll never forget!

Rock Pop and Soul Bands 

Want to create that classic party atmosphere? Bands such as the ever popular Magic Tones and Beat Junkie play the likes of Stevie Wonder and The Jackson 5, right up to modern classics from Bruno Mars, Beyonce and Pharrell Williams, meaning there’s something for everyone to boogie to – from the kids, right up to your Great Auntie Sue.

Acoustic, live-lounge style wedding bands 

Perhaps you want a more relaxed atmosphere or are looking for that perfect acoustic afternoon entertainment? Well, we also have an amazing selection of acoustic acts, such as the amazing Live Lounge Band, who play stunning covers of the biggest Radio One Live Lounge performances to date, as well as our incredible soloists & duos, such as pianists and guitarists, suitable for all aspects of your special day - from the ceremony itself, to the drinks reception, to the evening party.

Like wedding venues, quality bands get booked up well in advance, so start looking early! And the benefits of using an agency, like Tailored Entertainment is that you know quality is most certainly guaranteed. Unlike other agencies, Tailored Entertainment specialise in exclusive representation of the UK's finest live bands for weddings and other events. We only work with the best young, professional musicians, so what you’ll find is a very select, hand-picked roster of the best bands available to hire for weddings and functions in the UK and abroad. Not only do they exclusively manage all of their bands, but they also handle the entire booking process from start to finish, potentially saving you hundreds of pounds by booking directly through them, rather than a 3rd party agency. 

Above all, Tailored Entertainment want to make your wedding day the most incredible day of your life – they are always available for a friendly chat and ensure the booking process is simple and efficient from start to finish. The easy to use website, an attentive booking service and very high standard of our live acts, has secured Tailored Entertainment as one of the leading entertainment agencies for weddings and events across the UK and abroad, so please do get in touch to talk about what they can do for you.
