    Red light. We went with a DJ. My Husband plays in a band, and he knows how difficult it is to keep the crowd going, you have to have the right band to play at a wedding.

    Red light!
    We are doing an alternate option for entertainment. They'll still be music in the background, but we will have a playlist running. No sense in sinking the money into a DJ when a dance is not the evening entertainment.

    Red Light to both live band and dj. We're just going to plug my phone into the sound system, through the playlist on shuffle, and hope for the best!

    Red light due to the higher cost and went with a DJ instead.

    Red light. We are having a DJ instead. Live bands are great but they also need to have a break every once in a while which is understandable. But when it comes to the dance, I don't want everyones time to be interrupted by it.

    Red. We figured a DJ would have more variety.

    Red light- they're more expensive than a DJ and can offer less variety in genres of music

    Green light for us. We wanted to create an Irish pub party atmosphere, so we booked Screeched Inn for cocktail hours. Then we'll transition to a spotify playlist.

    Red light - far too expensive to get a live band as well as they resort to a playlist when on break anyway.

    Red light. As much I would've loved the atmosphere that a live band can create, it just wasn't in the budget.
