When planning your wedding the first place should always be your venue because without that there would be no reception. Finding good entertainment takes time and doing a bit of research based on your needs and the services offered by each company. We here at Firedog Entertainment have found that many couples looking for entertainment services, DJ or live band, wait till the last minute to do so. By this time, a good portion of the budget has been spent on the caterer, cake, dress, tux and other needs. When they realize at the last minute that they do not have entertainment the mad rush ensues to find a solution that will fit into their budget needs. Budget entertainment is not always going to promise you quality or a wonderful experience for you and your guests.
