North Texas Wedding Musicians You’ll Want to Book

Wednesday, April 6th, 2022

Looking for that little extra something that will set your wedding celebration apart from the rest? Host the most lively and entertaining event possible with help from some of the very best wedding bands and DJs in Dallas and the North Texas area! There is something so intangibly moving and personal about wedding music that speaks to your one-of-a-kind romance and these local professionals know just how to tailor the evening to your specific tastes! Follow along as we talk about fine-tuning your wedding entertainment beyond the bounds of tradition.


Entertainment: Marquise Pro

Wedding Bands and DJs in Dallas

When it comes to North Texas wedding entertainment, we don’t mess around! Only the very best will do for our brides, so that’s why we only work with a select number of local pros. We’ll break down what sets each music master apart down below because it goes way beyond just the tunes they curate.


What to Know Before Hiring Wedding Entertainment

Every type of entertainment vendor has a specific style that they are known for or are best at curating. Be sure to determine what this style is beforehand so it will mesh well with the tone you want to set and the guests you will be entertaining! If your crowd is much older or rooted in tradition, you may want to opt for a live band rather than a DJ. But if remixes or newer, trending music are more your speed, a DJ would likely allow for the flexibility and modernity you’re looking for! Can’t decide? Vendors that blend a DJ experience with live music just might be for you


Wedding DJ Dallas

Great DJs curate music that sets the tone for your event, whether it’s smooth jazz for cocktail hour or high-energy beats to get your guests on the dance floor. North Texas DJ’s Marquise Pro, DJ QuestionMark, CoHost Entertainment, DJ KB Events and Everlasting Sounds DFW work with you to plan the wedding of your dreams set to a soundtrack that perfectly reflects it. Pick tunes to play during all the right moments, like processional and recessional playlists, cake-cutting songs, and of course, that special last dance after everyone has lined up for your grand exit.


Dallas Wedding Bands

A live band gives you a one-of-a-kind, romantic and personal feel for your ceremony. For the reception, it’s like your own private concert and epic dance party with your friends and family! Royal Dukes Band is the ultimate live wedding band of Texas, guaranteed to show your guests a jumping time with their customizable 3-14 piece band specializing in high-energy music. They even host live showcases, so couples can preview the band before booking! If a little saxophone is up your alley, Marquise Pro also offers live music packages in addition to skilled DJ services, or you can blend the two for a wedding that sounds totally you!


Hiring a Wedding Band vs DJ

One of the main differences in hiring a wedding band versus a wedding DJ (besides their services) is the price difference. A DJ is typically a one-person show, making it much more affordable. A live band is comprised of multiple members who each get a cut at the end of the night, and rightfully so for performing their hearts out! Also, live bands can put their own spin on a song while DJs are there to play the tried-and-true original version. You can usually work with your Dallas wedding DJ to customize the entire evening’s playlist, while a live band may have a list of songs for you to choose from. No matter what direction you decide to go with your North Texas wedding entertainment, these local pros have you covered!


How to Set a Wedding Day Mood

Our biggest piece of advice is to know your wedding theme and how you want to make your guests feel throughout the event. The emotion that you want to invoke can be totally implemented by music, so you can get that jaw-dropping aisle moment you’ve always dreamed of, capture a tear-jerking first dance, or keep your partygoers on the dance floor all night long. Set out goals for your wedding day mood and your North Texas entertainment vendor will help create that vibe in real life!
