Play soft, light jazz music from your ipod for half an hour from 5-530. You know, while people start mingling and stuff. Kind of like an intro into a live band music. This is pretty common in reception places while the band is getting ready. Plus you may want the band around later when people are more in a dancing mood versus right off the bat. The band will be there setting up (obviously they should be there by 5 anyways) and you should be good to go,

Don’t change your invitations, it would ruin them! NO, don’t do that!!!

I’m a little confused — regardless of the band — were you planning on doing your cocktail hour before the ceremony?  So cocktails from 5-6, ceremony at 6, and then reception immediately after the ceremony? Or am I just reading that wrong?  Could you let us know what your perfect timeline would be (forget about the band) and then maybe we can help better with the originial questions! 

PS – If I were you, I’d call up the band yourself and just ask them if they can switch, you don’t need your Fiance to do it!

I say use an ipod for cocktail hour anyway.  A band might be a bit much for mingling over drinks.  You can play the ipod while the band is settign up and then when they are ready to go, you can switch.

Are there any women who work with the band? a coordinator or scheduler perhaps? A woman who had planned a wedding would likely be willing to work with you if she understood that you were the bride.  Just an idea.
