No, you’ll be fine honestly. There is absolutely no need to worry and rest assured you can still have an awesome party with live music – even with a sound limiter present at your venue. In years past, it used to be the case that the words ‘sound limiter’ would strike fear and panic into the hearts of both couples and wedding musicians. As noise limiters at wedding venues become more common, musicians are finding ways to work with them instead of against them. Smart, right?

Our list of 20 amazing live wedding bands is just the tip of the iceberg of acts available that can perform with a sound limiter at your venue. Before we show you what’s around, let’s get some facts out of the way. Take notes!

What Is A Sound Limiter?

Simply put, a sound limiter is a device that measures the level of noise in a room in decibels (dB).

How Does A Sound Limiter Work?

If the volume in the room reaches a certain level, the sound limiter is then ‘tripped’ and it can temporarily cut off the power supply to the stage. As you can imagine, this is less than ideal on your wedding night!

Why Do Wedding Venues Have Sound Limiters?

Limiters are installed in venues for a variety of reasons such as noise pollution, complaints from nearby residents and council restrictions. The levels change depending on the venue so always ask your wedding venue about any noise limitations before planning your entertainment.

Here are 20 wedding bands that can still provide an awesome party and a live music experience on your wedding day, even with a sound limiter in place!
