How To Book a Scottish Wedding Band

Planning a wedding can be a stressful and time-consuming project. There’s the venue, the guest list, the catering, the flowers, the travel, and, of course, the wedding band. That’s why, here at Music For Scotland, we strive to make the wedding band booking process as easy (and enjoyable) as possible - selecting the soundtrack to your big day is exciting after all! Below we detail the process of how to book a Scottish wedding band through Music For Scotland and even offer a few tips and tricks to help you find the best band for you and yours.

How to start your search for the best wedding band

Finding the best wedding band in Scotland for you requires you to first decide what kind of atmosphere you would like to set on your special day. Maybe you are looking for pop music to keep the dancefloor filled. Maybe you prefer a little more rock n’ roll to get the party started. Or perhaps you would like to incorporate some traditional Scottish folk music into the evening with a ceilidh set. Here at Music For Scotland, we have bands to match every taste and many of our bands can tick multiple boxes with song lists and styles that offer incredible range and variety, ensuring you keep everyone entertained.

If you don’t know where to start, don’t panic! Our band list is easy to navigate and our band profiles are the best way to get a feel for their style and what they can offer you. This means there’s no harm in picking a band from our list and seeing where the search takes you. You can also start with some of our blogs to help point you in the right direction. We also recommend following our social media (TikTok, YouTube, Instagram and Facebook).

The band profiles themselves contain loads of useful information that can help you in the decision-making process. With videos of the band in action, varied song lists to peruse, a list of additional services, testimonials from previous customers, and a brief bio of the band’s history, this really is the best way to get to know our bands quickly and all from the comfort of your own home.

Booking a Wedding Band in Scotland

Once you have looked at the band profiles, that interest you, click the “Check Availability” button within any of the bands. This will take you to our quick and easy form that lets you contact as many bands as you with just one submission - saving you from going through the process multiple times. Our user-friendly system will list all the bands you researched and allow you to remove any that didn’t suit your style.

By submitting your enquiry form, you are communicating directly with the bands and it is the band members who will respond to you. This bypasses any middlemen, speeds up the enquiry process and helps you to form a more personal attachment to the bands you are interested in.

Our bands are all hand-picked for not only the quality of their performances but also their professionalism and approachable nature. They all want to help their clients have the best wedding day possible and will work with you to make sure that happens. 

Maybe you have some questions about what bands can offer before you place a booking - that’s no problem at all - our bands would love to hear from you.
