DID U know?
72% of all brides say they would have spent more time choosing their reception entertainment.
Almost 100% say they would have spent more of their budget on the entertainment.
During wedding planning, Brides say their highest priority is their wedding dress, attire, followed by the reception site and caterer - reception entertainment is among the least of their priorities!
Within one week after their reception, 78% of Brides say they would have made the entertainment their highest priority!
When asked 81% of guests say the thing they remember most about a wedding is the entertainment!
The cost of entertainment at your reception is only a small portion of your overall budget. As Modern Bride Magazine states, only 5% of your overall budget will be spent on entertainment. However, over 80% of your guests will remember the performance of your band more than anything else at your reception. Think back to the last affair you attended, what did you eat? What color was the napkin? What was the guest of honor wearing?
