Be the DJ on your wedding
You can save money on music on your wedding day by becoming the DJ yourself. If you have the knowledge and are in to music, you can easily play songs that you like. This will save you a considerable sum of money but it is unlikely that you will get that much time on your own wedding day
Invite limited people
It is good that you invite your close family and friends on the wedding day. In this way, the ceremony will be an informal one and you would not need to spend a lot of money on music. You can play the songs you want or you can ask a friend to play them for the ceremony. Another way would be to hire a good DJ for the ceremony and save costs by inviting limited number of guests.
Hire a local band
If you do not want to go for a renowned DJ or a famous music band, hire a local band for your wedding ceremony. There are many aspiring youngsters who have loads of talent and are waiting for the right opportunity. They will not charge a lot of money and you will get some very good music for your wedding guests.
Make a CD of special songs
If you want to save costs on a DJ or a local band also, make a CD in advance for the function. Select some of your favourite songs for the day and burn them in a CD so that they can be played throughout the ceremony.
