4 Live Wedding Bands in Bali for Fantastic Wedding Entertainment

live wedding bands in bali

If you’re planning a destination wedding in Bali, expect it to come with additional tasks on your checklist that differ from an ordinary wedding. This includes the celebrant, the wedding decorations, the menu you’ll be serving and the entertainment. If you’re considering a live wedding band for your wedding, it can get a little pricey and complicated to take a band from your country to fly with you.

Instead, consider hiring a live wedding band in Bali! Not only does this save you money and stress, but it’s a great way to have music and entertainment from Bali’s culture. This doesn’t mean that the bands only exclusively play in their language, as the Balinese love to play Western songs and mix it with their personal style. Wedding bands in Bali charge much less than they do in the US and UK, but they offer great service. The price range you should be looking at is around US$700 to US$2000. Anything under the price, you’ll risk getting an unprofessional band. While being over US$2000 is just expensive unless it’s the island’s biggest star.

Choose the Perfect Live Wedding Music for Your Special Day 

Deciding the ideal live wedding music you desire for your big day is about choosing the right band that matches your wedding’s theme and style. If you’ve chosen a live band that doesn’t fit your wedding’s themes, they might seem out of place, play the wrong music, and conflict with the atmosphere you’re trying to create. 

Choosing the right wedding band in Bali

Besides style, there are other factors you should consider when choosing the right wedding band, including your budget, their suitability to your venue, how they dress and the music style and genre they perform. Once you’ve determined all the above, it’s time to look at our top picks for the best live wedding band in Bali.
