Wedding music sets the tone and can even set the theme for your wedding. What you choose for your wedding music can be traditional and romantic, chic and trendy or anything in between. In 2008, the trend for wedding music in America is leaning toward Latin American bands and tribute bands.
This music wedding trend for 2008 is no surprise. Latin American bands add not only a South American flair, but also bring fast, fun and romantic dance music to your reception. Latin American bands are highly versatile; they can range from upscale Latin Jazz to performing a romantic tango or salsa. Afro-Cuban and Mexican mariachi bands also fit into this category and bring an authentic taste of Latin culture to any wedding or event. It is no surprise that this trend is growing; Latin American dances have often been equated with dramatic feelings of romance and love.
Tribute bands are also trendy for weddings in 2008. Tribute bands cover a single groupís work and often they sound just as good as the real thing. Hiring a chart-topping band may not be in the budget for every couple, and this is an economical choice for a couple who enjoys a favorite band. With so many reality shows on television often having a major band performing at events, it is no wonder why so many bridal couples are looking to duplicate similar themes at their wedding.
In the same vein, impersonators are also making a comeback as entertainment for weddings in 2008. Many couples find that having Marilyn Monroe greeting their guests, or having Elvis sing are great and easy ways to entertain their guests and provide lighthearted fun to the festivities.
Unfortunately, wedding planners have mentioned that many of the popular bands and impersonators are already booked for the first five to six months of 2008. These advance bookings have given the wedding industry a hint of what the upcoming 2008 wedding trends are for music and entertainment. The best advice is, if you are interested in hiring a band or impersonator for your 2008 wedding, book in advance.
