If you are planning your own wedding entertainment, there is certainly a lot to choose from and one of the most profitable and memorable options available to you is to hire a wedding singer.
One of the main benefits of hiring a Wedding Singer is that you get a lot of choice and flexibility because each individual vocalist has their own sound and, of course, their gender. The possibilities are truly endless and you can make sure that you find the perfect wedding singer to suit your tastes and give your wedding night reception the perfect atmosphere.
But where do you start looking for a wedding singer?
One of the best ways to find a singer to perform at your wedding is to use an online entertainment directory so that you can save yourself a lot of time and potentially money as well. Many entertainment directories will have their own dedicated categories for singers, with plenty of subcategories too! To give you some inspiration, let’s take a look at the different types of singers you might want to hire:
Choosing a female singer to perform at your wedding reception gives you a great selection of voices and styles to choose from. Some singers will offer dramatic performances and great voices in the style of Cher, Whitney Houston and more. Or you can go for someone with a modern twist! Female singers are one of the most popular options for wedding entertainment and you can reserve them for just about any part of your big day.
Male singers also offer a wide variety of genres and singing styles and, with the popularity of male vocalists like Michael Bublé, they are an extremely popular choice among weddings. Imagine your first dance to a crooner style song, or if you want something a little heavier, choose a male singer with a rock background. There is a great selection of male singers available for hire and as female singers they are also suitable for any part of your wedding, from the ceremony to the evening reception.
Is your wedding approaching Christmas time? Why not make it even more festive and reserve Carol Singers for your big day? Perfect for your beverage reception, or perhaps your wedding breakfast, Carol Singers will use her vocal talents to sing popular Christmas songs. You may find that some of your guests join in, too! We can’t think of a better musical entertainment option for a December wedding than this one!
There are a lot of guitarists that are on the charts right now, like Ed Sheeran and the classic Bruce Springsteen. This has seen an increase in these types of wedding reservations, as they offer quite a bit of versatility. From a beautiful first dance ballad to more upbeat, rock-style performances, Guitar Singers can easily bring wedding guests onto the dance floor! They require very little room to perform, which makes them perfect for smaller, more intimate weddings as well.
Pianist / Singers
Did you know that most pianists / singers will come to your wedding venue with their own keyboard or baby grand piano? You don’t have to worry if your wedding venue doesn’t have its own equipment with the portability of these types of instruments. Famous piano singers include Elton John and, of course, Coldplay’s Chris Martin, who deliver an impressive performance. If you love piano music and want your wedding reception to have a touch of class, why not find a pianist / singer?
If you are a fan of opera and want something a little different for your wedding night reception, why not choose an opera singer who can add a breathtaking and dramatic atmosphere to your big day. Your wedding guests are unlikely to expect this kind of entertainment, however, with their mind-blowing voices and operative arias, this kind of performance is sure to add the WOW factor. Another way to include an opera singer on your wedding day (if you are unsure about hiring one for the evening) is to enhance your wedding ceremony with live opera music.
As you can see, there are many options when it comes to hiring a wedding singer, however we hope our suggestions have given you a lot of inspiration for your own big day.
One of the most important things to remember is to find and reserve entertainment that means something to you as a couple. Always ask in advance as many singers are booked early, especially for weddings, and some are hired a year or two in advance. Happy wedding entertainment planning!
