Top Tips From A Live Music Industry Expert on Choosing Your Wedding Music.


Getting the right music can create the perfect atmosphere to your wedding ceremony! See Lucy’s top tips from TNWS London exhibitor Lemon Entertainment.

“Hello, I’m Lucy and I run Lemon Entertainment. Before I worked in the Wedding Industry I worked in the Music Industry with artists such as Ed Sheeran, James Bay and Jamie Lawson, so I like to think I know my stuff when it comes to live music. The wedding bands I look after are the best that money can buy. Our elite musicians have worked with artists ranging from Paulo Nutini and Florence and the Machine. I also offer Wedding Planning and Co-Ordination services which allows me an outlet for my obsession with running events and planning amazing days down to the smallest detail.

My team and I have worked on hundreds of live music shows, festivals and private events and I would like to share with you some of my top tips to give you the ultimate edge on your wedding day when it comes to choosing your wedding music.


  • If possible, book your band at least a year ahead. Good bands get booked up well in advance.
  • You will get a better service if you use professional, full time musicians who play at events and tour with artists for a living. Try and stay away from part timers and students.
  • Look at a variety of band repertoires and make sure that the songs fit with what you are looking for.
  • Check with your venue if there are any sound restrictions or limitations.
  • Make a running order of the day. Think about what time you want your band to set up and soundcheck.
  • Do you need to consider getting microphones / PA system for speeches and background music during the meal?
  • Do you want a dance floor ? Professional lighting or extra production to give your evening event a real edge?
  • Consider various forms of entertainment for the different sections of your wedding. How about a harpist to play as you walk down the aisle? A roaming band to play to your guests during champagne and canapés? And the ultimate high end party band to finish the night off with a bang.
