(Detroit, Michigan) -- Exalt Entertainment Group premiering celebrity jazz performing and recording artists and spoken word artists nationally. Today announced wedding planning tips for entertainment bookings. Stressing that during economic downtimes budgets for wedding planning are often reduced and adding quality jazz helps to enhance the ambiance and leave a quality impression.

According to Brenda Bradley, Owner of Exalt Entertainment Group weddings are lasting impressions of class, quality, and creativity. She reveals that the condition of the economy has resulted in wedding planning changes affecting menu, venue, number of guests, decorations and many traditional extras. Bradley stresses that booking first class jazz artists brings value to weddings when having to reduce costs for other expenses. She notes that the inclusion of high quality live jazz can balance other shortcomings by adding elegance and excitement while appealing to all ages.

“Many people don't realize how affordable and flexible an alternative a live jazz band is for weddings. Some of the most classically romantic, widely recognized songs ever performed are jazz standards," stated Bradley.

Recession Wedding Planning Tips for Jazz Bookings:

1. Have a live jazz band playing outside as your guests enter and leave the wedding.

2. Add a live band to a reduced menu strolling buffet for instant chic that won't scream “budget cut".

3. Create special moments for your wedding day by having a live jazz band play during your wedding party introduction, first dance, cake cutting, etc.

4. Have the wedding band to play both during the wedding and dance reception, rather than adding extra expense of a DJ.

5. Give tribute to the wedding couple, family members and friends, past and present by having a live jazz band play special songs.

6. Consider instrumental alternatives, such as horn solos, to traditional piano or organ in the ceremony itself to increase intimacy and add affordable flair to small or non-traditional spaces.

7. For smaller venues that may have multiple separate spaces rather than a large reception hall, have multiple soloists, duos or trios to play different styles (ballads, dance, etc.), rather than a single large combo.

8. If your jazz artists are of sufficient performing and recording stature, arrange specially packaged, autographed CDs as mementos to commemorate your event.
