Fifteen years ago , when Live Music Management first began supplying acts for weddings , only the super rich held wedding parties that lasted all weekend but just as hen and stag parties have been extended to last the whole weekend and even been extended to continue for a week so it is that weekend weddings have become common place.
What is a weekend wedding? A weekend wedding is a wedding party that is so good it lasts not just one night but two or more!
Weekend weddings are commonplace when the Bride and Groom have chosen a special location for the reception. Quite often Live Music Management will have calls from clients getting married in France or Italy wanting to book wedding entertainment that will keep the party rocking throughout the weekend. Other clients with weddings planned in remote towns and villages in Devon , Cornwall , Somerset or Scotland will often have guests staying with them for more than one night and want to have a main wedding party with smaller get togethers on either side of the main event.
Many Live Music Management wedding bands can provide acoustic sets to compliment the party band set and I recall a number of times when our acts have been booked with a view to them doing this. One memorable wedding reception in Norfolk had an acoustic duo from the band performing at a camp fire party on the Friday evening. Saturday evening there was a larger gathering with a big party in a marquee. As it happens the band went down so well they were asked to perform into the small hours at another camp fire party which started after the main reception had ended. I understand the sun was rising as the party goers went back to their accommodation (many of them were staying in tents in the grounds of the house where the party was held.) The band had a tiring ,but wonderful , weekend at this festival style wedding.
