The Knot Best of Weddings Reviews: 2021 Wrap

We love being a part of The Knot community, so to start off the New Year of 2022, we would like to express our appreciation for our amazing couples, clients, and fellow vendors who got us through 2021.

We were able to be a part of some incredible events and create amazing memories. The enthusiasm from both vendors and clients helps continue doing what we love doing, and helps boost us into The Knot Hall of Fame (!!) We feel incredibly lucky to kick off the New Year with a pep in our step and hope for many love stories ahead! With that spirit, we’d like to share some of our favorite reviews from the past year.

Our wedding planner connected us with Blue Wave Band after the band we had originally booked had to cancel last minute. In a matter of 72 hours, they were able to take in the extensive plan that we’d worked on for months with the other band. Communication over this short period was clear and organized, and it allowed us to relax and trust that they would do a great job. We really lucked out that they had a crew available that close to our wedding. Having high quality live music was something we were really looking forward to and the Blue Wave Band came through in a big way. The musicians were all very talented, the sound quality was well-engineered, and their overall production was well organized. They played acoustic songs during our ceremony, played a few songs during cocktail hour, and then played the reception for nearly 3 hours. They played a wide spectrum of music from classic rock, to 80’s & 90’s pop, to some modern hits as well, but I have no doubt they could execute on just about any genre. Everyone was dancing and enjoying the music – including our friends in their late 20’s to mid 30’s, and our younger and older relatives. They even ripped a few well-placed solos that were a ton of fun. Afterwards we received a lot of positive feedback on how good the band was and how much fun our friends and family had dancing and enjoying the music.

Blue Wave Band was absolutely fantastic! We had DJ service at our ceremony and a 6-piece band and MC for our reception. Live music was a priority in our budget and Blue Wave Band delivered on every penny we spent. Our producer was very professional, clear, and helpful throughout the entire process. The online portal with the band planning page was straight forward and very detailed. We listed our music preferences, but only chose specific songs for the formal dances. We trusted the rest of the music to be chosen by the band, and they were phenomenal! We had so much fun, and our guests loved the experience of live music. We would highly recommend Blue Wave Band for any event!

This band is so so great. We and our guests were blown away. I can’t say enough good things — fantastic musicians, great music options and super fun. They also did the announcements and helped us keep to the schedule. Do not think twice—-they are the best and you won’t be disappointed.

Despite the many date changes and emails later, our producer and Blue Wave Band remained flexible and so easy to work with! On top of that, we received countless compliments on the band, how skilled you guys were and how fun the party was! The strings were absolutely gorgeous and the MC did an amazing job and made the entire night so smooth. For many of our guests and vendors, it was their first wedding ever with a live band! Such a fun party and a lasting memory for everyone, including my husband and I! Definitely recommend and would hire them again in a heartbeat. You will not regret spending the money as it was completely worth every penny!
