It really depends on what you prefer as a couple. Remember, only listen to yourselves, not your aunts, cousins, friends etc. It is YOUR wedding, and you should decide whether to have live musicians or not.
Music is a very important factor at a wedding, it really follows all stages of a wedding day. And it should be like that! The music is created to put people in better mood, to keep them moving, smiling, dancing, boosting their Serotonin levels up! And we do want them to enjoy, they’re your favorite people in this world, celebrating your most special day in Dubrovnik with you.
Starting with the obvious, ceremony music. Where we have the live cello/violin or even piano players, playing (or singing) your favorite song as you walk down the aisle. Putting everyone in their feels, they’re getting a bit emotional and so are you… Stop it…You’re going to mess up your makeup!
Anyways, yes, back to music!
You can have live musicians on the boat cruise in between your ceremony and reception. How amazing is that? I’ll tell you. It will wow your guests, they will be talking about it years and years afterwards. The boat cruise on its own it something that brings joy and pleasure to the guests, they are more relaxed now, the sun is shining, you’re having a drink (or two) and you’re cruising on the most gorgeous Adriatic Sea. What a day so far, ha? Love it.
The boat cruise was delightful, the light breeze from the sea is something that they didn’t know they needed. The mood is set, your guests are approaching the reception venue.
Their energy will get even higher if they see a band or a live musician playing. They’ll always keep the dance floor full, that’s a guarantee!
The next option is having a great DJ plus a sax player. Oooooh! Yes, it does sound good. Nothing better than the sax player performance and the sound that perfectly contributes to the summer feel as you’re having your cold drink. That’s heaven right there, and you’re living in it.
Either way, having some sort of music is mandatory, we can agree on that. But live music adds to the experience. Whether you’re having them play your favorite songs or you hired a traditional Linđo ensemble to surprise your guests with music and dance closely linked to this region.
When having live musicians, they contribute to your overall experience with their performance and their individual and personalized approach. Each concert is unique, and we know that. Whether it is a sax player accompanying the DJ or the entire band in front of you. It will be a wedding to remember!
You can also have just a DJ on the boat cruise (and reception) or you can put your own music on the speakers. Do as you like. We’re not here to persuade, we’re here to inform 😊But, hire a band or a live player. Just to see how sweaty they can get as they perform. Lol.
