It's best to book a musician for your wedding as early as possible to ensure that you have plenty of time to prepare and find the right musician for your special day.
Many in-demand wedding musicians tend to get booked up quickly, particularly during the popular wedding season from May to October. At least a 6-9 month lead time is best to ensure that you'll have the best chance your favorite musician is available.
What does that mean for your timeline? If you're planning a June wedding, you should ideally begin researching options by at least September of the year before.
