Blue Mountains Wedding Music – Something Borrowed Band

Address: Blue Mountains Wedding Band
Phone: 0403 278 635

We are in the middle of writing about our experiences playing music at weddings in and around the Blue Mountains.

Wedding Ceremony Music

Something Borrowed is the name of our band. We play wedding ceremony music every weekend in the Blue Mountains.

We are experts at playing music for your ceremony – and have lots of amazing options for you to choose from ranging from traditional to modern music.

Are you being married by a Civil Celebrant or by a Priest? Your wedding ceremony music “key moments” will change depending on how you choose to celebrate your wedding. The musicians at your wedding will play approximately 15 minutes of background music as guests arrive to the ceremony. Catholic ceremonies typically take at least 1.5 hours and we recommend a similar booking time for non Church weddings so that you can have music played during pre dinner drinks after your ceremony.

A wedding in a Church with a Priest will usually mean that you pick 5 songs for these moments:

  • Entrance of the Bride
  • Candle Lighting Ceremony
  • Communion
  • Register Signing
  • Exit/Recessional

A wedding with a Civil Celebrant in a Park, Beach, Venue or Garden will usually only need songs chosen for these moments:

  • Entrance of the Bride
  • Register Signing
  • Exit/Recessional

Wedding Reception Music Guide

Ranging in size from 1 -8 musicians, Something Borrowed is a wedding band that will be perfect for your wedding.

Don’t be confused by our flexibility – as Something Borrowed changes from playing beautiful wedding ceremony music into a party covers band with drums, guitar, bass, electric violin, keyboard, male and female vocals. Every note we play on the night is live. Anyone can call themselves a musician – but we all have Music Degrees. We are young professional musicians with decades of music training – all this means is that you are in safe and very experienced hands.

When you book us we will play any song you choose live for your first dance… and guarantee to get your guests up on the dance floor. We play soft background music for drinks, canapes and dinner – then upbeat party music for dancing. In fact we love requests which is why we also include a bonus DJ and a host of bonus extras when you book our Deluxe Music Packages. Typically we put our own special twist on pop and softer jazz during pre-dinner drinks and dinner, acting as background mood music. Then once the cake is cut and the first dance begun, the band kicks off the dancing with party music starting with classic dance floor tunes for the oldies before moving onto the new stuff. This way the music appeals to the young… and the not so young.

Most couples need wedding reception music for 5 hours – but you can book us for longer if you need. We will play up to 4 x 45 minute sets of live wedding reception music over this time and our DJ takes over during the band breaks. We play different wedding reception music styles to fit in with each of these parts of your wedding celebration:

  1. Pre dinner
  2. First Dance Ideas
  3. Party Music

When you book Something Borrowed to perform at your wedding reception, you will choose at least six special wedding songs to highlight the key moments of the reception.

On top of these key wedding music highlights, you can choose as many other tunes as you like. If we can play them live we will – if not we will add them to the DJ play list so that you can still have every one of your favourite wedding songs played at your reception.

Here are the key reception music moments we want you to customise:

  • Bridal Party Entrance
  • Cake Cutting
  • First Dance
  • Bouquet Throw
  • Garter Throw
  • Farewell Archway
