I’m new to Weddingbee and would like to get some advice on something. We are having a small wedding as we both have small families (and clearly not many friends!) of between 50 and 60 guests. We have booked a band to play in the evening but now I’m worried that we will look silly having a band for such a small number of guests. I asked a friend and she agreed, although her reason was that she thought it would be “too noisy”, which doesn’t make much sense to me. But what do people think of band for 50-60 guests? There’s still time for us to cancel the band!

I think it would be fine.
Our wedding is going to be anywhere from 45-60, and we’re still having a dj!

Ah thanks for replying. You know what, when I read your post I immediately thought having a DJ for 45 people is totally cool, so I don’t know why I was questioning it for my own wedding. I clearly need to take some of my own advice! Have a great wedding. x

we’re having a small wedding too, and just doing the iPod-sound system thing due to our budget, but if i could afford it i’d totally have a band or DJ or whatever else I wanted!
think of it this way – how many times have you been to a bar that has live music and there’s just a small crowd there? it seems totally normal in that situation, so i think it will at your wedding, too!

@alazarin: i think it’ll be fine. maybe a larger band- like 8 or 9 piece- might be a little too much, but whatever. if you want a band, who cares! i am getting heat about my bridal party being too large for the size of my wedding- but i cant help that between FI and i we have a million brothers and sisters!

we had a duo playing the guitar and singing music from the 60’s and 70’s” we had 100 guests, but our venue was not a typical “wedding venue”

Yay! Another small wedding! We’re inviting around 50 people and just having a piano player. We’re excited for it! I don’t think it’s silly to have a band, I bet it’ll be fun! It’s your day, do what you want 🙂

My bff had a string quartet and no dancing. I am also having no dancing for my family only wedding so maybe just some music playing in the background.
