How to Pay for your Wedding Band

This may seem like a straightforward blog, and indeed it should be. However, the method you choose to pay for your wedding band can speak volumes about the band itself and potentially impact the performance on the big night.

Bank Transfer

In today’s digital age, online banking is second nature to most of us, and BACS transfers are the preferred payment method for many wedding bands. Yet, it’s crucial to ensure that your payment is going to a legitimate company rather than an individual. Verify that their address matches the one listed on Companies House.

Additionally, be cautious of middlemen. Some bands may appear to be “in house” but are actually booked through agents. This can complicate matters if issues arise, as contacting the agent or band directly may prove challenging.

Any discrepancies in these details could indicate a lack of professionalism on the part of the wedding band, potentially impacting their performance on your special night.


Card Payments

Many wedding bands may not have the capability to accept card payments. If yours does, it’s a positive sign of their experience, as it suggests they perform at numerous events annually, be it weddings or corporate functions.

Using a credit card for payment offers some level of protection. If the band were to cease operations, your credit card company may reimburse you for any deposits or payments made.


Cash on the Night

If your wedding band requests cash payment on the night, exercise caution. Paying musicians in cash raises several red flags. How dependable are they? Will they honour their commitment if offered a better gig elsewhere on the same night? Are they compliant with tax regulations and have adequate insurance coverage?
