    Maria and Mike’s Wedding: June 2017

    Many thanks to all of you – it was just what we wanted, perfect. My best friend’s son was mesmerized – he’s talking about nothing but the band! The feedback from the rest of our guests was excellent too.

    We had a great time at our wedding and wish we could do it all over again. We thoroughly recommend Don’t Tell The Bride to any one who is planning a wedding. They were absolutely amazing, performing great music that is really original. All of the band members are completely adorable and great characters which makes such a difference when entertaining. All of my guests enjoyed the music, even the little ones! As I walked down the aisle they created a moving atmosphere. It was emotional time and the music completed the moment. The band was professional, looked the part, sounded great and left us wanting to listen and dance to more.

    Thank you for being one of the major highlights of our wedding (other than getting married of course) You were brilliant! We couldn’t have asked for a better band for our wedding. You had people dancing and singing along from the start to the end of the night with an excellent selection of tracks. We loved the personal touches – like the first dance and adapting some of the lyrics. Fun, funny, musically brilliant! I would recommend you guys to anyone in a heartbeat.

    “Don’t Tell The Bride” made the evening totally memorable. The band’s playing got everybody up on the dance floor and the guys really interacted with everyone. At one point I looked out at the table and there were only six or seven people sitting down, out of 180 guests. My special favourite was “Teenage Dirt Bag” by Wheatus which they did really well. Everyone was singing along and having a great time. I’d totally recommend them for any party event.

    Don’t Tell The Bride were brilliant at our wedding. Chris got in touch before and genuinely cared about making it perfect for us. He had some great ideas for our first dance and made sure the atmosphere was exactly right by offering to fix the disco lighting for us as well. The band turned up early so there was no rush with setting up but were really flexible when we were running late – they cut their breaks so we could have more songs! The guys are really fun, they are great musicians and they have a vast range of songs – the whole vibe was fantastic. Everyone was on the dance floor the whole night and loads of the guests told us how impressed they were, and would book them for their future events! Thanks Don’t Tell The Bride, you made the party!
