Whether your wedding is right around the corner, or down the road, The Corners has just what you need to make your day extra special!

Weddings: a celebration of bringing two people together as one couple ... and also a very good excuse to bring A LOT of people together to have a pretty terrific party. And what would that party be without music and entertainment? To help, we gathered together this guide of musicians throughout the Milwaukee area – ceremony musicians, bands, DJs – as well as entertainment like photo booths to help the perfect couple throw the perfect party.
