The Stage Debate: Making the right choice for your Wedding

Wedding planning can be overwhelming, and one tradition that couples may question is the need for a stage. While some may argue that a stage enhances the look and performance of live wedding entertainment, it's not always necessary. Renting a stage can add a touch of class, style, and elegance to your wedding venue and highlight your wedding entertainment. It's a great way to celebrate in style.

  1. Great viewing: A stage can provide a focal point for guests to gather and dance around, and also solves the problem of guests not being able to see the band because of taller people standing in front of them.

  2. Cost-effective options: Some venues can offer a stage as part of their booking packages at no cost or a reasonable price, which can be built into your wedding package.

  3. Safety: Stages provide extra safety for you and your wedding entertainment, by preventing mishaps and accidents that can occur when not performing on a stage.

  4. Social distancing: During the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, a stage can be a great way to keep guests socially distant and safe. It can also help comply with any future government regulations that may require social distancing.

Renting a stage can be quite expensive, especially if it's not included in your wedding venue's package. This added expense may not be worth it if you don't feel it's necessary for your wedding. Potential Cons:

  1. Venue size: Some venues simply do not have the space to accommodate a stage. Make sure to check the dimensions of your venue and communicate with your wedding entertainment to ensure the stage size they need will fit.

  2. Safety concerns: Stages can create safety hazards if they are not set up properly or if they are too small to accommodate the wedding band or DJ.

  3. Limited flexibility: Stages can limit the flexibility of the wedding entertainment and can restrict their movement. This can make it difficult for the band or DJ to interact with the guests and create a dynamic performance.

  4. Unnecessary for some events: If you're planning a more intimate wedding with a small guest list, a stage may not be necessary. It can be overkill for the scale of the event and can take away from the atmosphere.
