Whether you’re newly engaged or you’ve waited for your big day through multiple postponements, this summer is shaping up to be full of joyful celebrations as we finally seem to have an end in sight to social distancing rules and COVID restrictions.

We think weddings this summer will be a little special – naturally all weddings are happy occasions to be celebrated, however this year they come with the additional celebration of family and friends coming together once again and seeing each other for the first time in what feels like forever!

The simple answer is: yes, you can! There is a little more to it than that though, so read on and we’ll fill you in on everything you need to know about planning live music at your micro wedding.

We’ve all had enough of lockdowns and social distancing and want to get back to times that are precedented… but we’re not quite there yet. That’s fine though, because carefully planned micro weddings are the perfect, intimate way to bypass the delays and get married (at last!). And there’s nothing to stop you having a bigger celebration after all this is over!

Time to talk about your Big Wedding – the one that’s going to happen after all of this is over. Maybe you’re having a micro wedding first and a big party later. Maybe you’ve postponed getting married until 2022 or 2023. Perhaps you’re planning a big do in the summer and planning to party the night away, festival style, in a big open space! Either way, when those big wedding celebrations happen again, we’ll all need to let our hair down and have the party of a lifetime!

We asked Fortune Band to share their top tips for keeping a wedding dance floor filled all night long!
