How to plan your wedding entertainment

A lot of times when people call wanting to book a wedding sax player, they’re not sure about the set up for the equipment we bring, I know most of you have never needed to know how to plan your wedding entertainment before!

It’s a little different planning for a wedding saxophonist and DJ than it is for other types of entertainment, and I like to think I make it as easy as possible, as I bring the sax, the sequins, the lights etc.

Here are some of the top things to think about when planning wedding entertainment:


Where do you want your wedding reception entertainer to be located? Will they stay in one place or move around?

As a wedding reception sax player I can do either – some people like me to be in the spotlight while others want me to move around and mingle in with their guests.

I’m happy to do either, just let me know ahead of time so I can make sure I’m in the right place!


You want your entertainment to be seen, so think about how to light them up. Again this is a very personal choice – some go for a retro disco lights look, or a magical fairy lights setting.

In my case, I have a light-up saxophone, so even if there’s no spotlights, fairy lights or disco lights, you won’t miss me!

First Dance

One of the most important moments in your wedding reception is your first dance, so think about whether you want your main entertainment to be a part of this.

Some people like to play a favourite song, while others want a live performance from a singer, band or solo musician (like me!).

You might not realise you can actually have both – often when I play my sax at wedding receptions and club nights, I’ll play along to tracks chosen by a DJ, so I’m very open to requests if you want your first dance to involve a particular backing track AND live sax.

Enjoy it!

The most important thing is for your wedding reception entertainment to give you a night to remember, and that’s where I come in.

I love my wedding sax player bookings, it’s such an honour to be a part of people’s big day and the atmosphere is always absolutely buzzing.
