Band or DJ? – 17 weeks to go

Image from Kings Place Weddings How I Met Your Mother did an episode on the concept, Adam Sandler starred in a film, and I imagine that ever since weddings were invented, brides and grooms to-be have been asked, shortly after announcing their wedding date, "So, what are you doing about music?".
