Wedding Music and Entertainment
Music at your wedding and SIAE
Music and entertainment are key to the success of your wedding in Italy. Do not think you have all your wedding requirements covered unless you have decided on your Wedding Music. Music will be forever the soundtrack of your wedding day in Italy and you should consider selecting which background music to play while saying “I do”, and which music will accompany you when you have just been married.
You can choose between live music with a band or a DJ but remember that whichever you choose will play a huge part in building the personality and tone of your wedding day. Remember to select a nice first dance which will kick off your social life as husband and wife and ignite the dancing of your guests… A little bit of pressure? No worries, your guests are your best friends and loving family… your first dance cannot go wrong, even if you miss all the steps, it will be YOUR VERY SPECIAL MOMENT.
Efffetti wedding planners will arrange all the necessary requirements for the music at your wedding. Remember that in Italy to be able to play music, even at private parties, you have to pay a copyright tax called SIAE. The fee amount depends on the type of music (live or pre-recorded) and it starts from 250€ and goes up to 450€. Also in many venues, music cannot be played outdoors any later than midnight so if you plan to have a long night of dancing, our wedding planners will suggest venues which allow you to have music until late at night or that have indoor facilities.
Music is a matter of personal taste, so our options will let you choose absolutely anything music you want, from hard-rock to opera or from a string quartet to a jazz band.
A wedding has very diverse moments: the sanctity of the ceremony, the conviviality of the cocktail reception and the joyfulness of the dancing, all of which require an appropriate background music. From a 12-piece jazz band, to a string quartet, from a DJ to a solo soprano singer, you will always have the right music at the right moment for your wedding in Tuscany.
