My FI and I are trying to decide if we should go with a DJ or a band. My FI really likes the idea of having live music and the band we are thinking about going with plays a good mix of oldies and newer music. We have been told that a DJ is better for a wedding because they can play all types of music. With a band people won't dance as much, etc. My FBIL had a band for their wedding and everyone loved it.
Looking for opinions and experiences that people have had at their own weddings or weddings they have been to, is a band or DJ better.
