“We got married yesterday and had The Invitations play at our reception. I have a fear of cheesy wedding bands so when we saw them we loved the fact they had a huge range of songs but also they were modern and fresh too. They did not disappoint, the atmosphere was amazing and the dance floor full. I couldn’t believe it when it came to the end of the night! I would highly recommend as they were great to deal with throughout and were fab on the day. Thanks a million guys xx ”

“You guys played for us at our wedding on 8th September 2017 at Norton House. Honest to God your video doesn’t do you justice. You guys are PHENOMENAL! From initial communication (outstanding, such quick responses to emails & queries) to the actual day, it was an absolute pleasure to have you as our band. Nothing was too much trouble & you even managed to play a request I asked for at the last minute. The dance floor was never empty & every single one of our guests has praised you on such an amazing gig. Will be recommending you to everyone we know planning a wedding! We can’t wait to come see you play in Glasgow the next time we’re off work. Much love, Costas & Laurie”

“Hi Chris

I cannot thank The Invitations enough for making our wedding reception amazing. Our guests have not stopped talking about you they loved you guys as did we. We hope you and your wife have a great trip to Malaysia next year.”

“The Invitations played at our wedding at Archerfield house in August and they were absolutely superb! We thought they were so brilliant and such fun, our guests didn’t leave the dance floor all night. They were an absolute pleasure to deal with, learnt our favourite songs and gave such a great performance we really couldn’t have asked for anything better. Totally fantastic. Such great voices and truly a super party!
Thank you very, very much guys, we want to see you again!
All the best,”

Wallace and Katie Wilson – 26/08/17 – Archerfield House, North Berwick

“Hi Chris

Just wanted to drop you an email to thank you all for playing at our wedding on Saturday, you were awesome!

All the guests at the wedding who we’ve spoken to have commented on how good you guys were, both the standard of your performance and your setlist. I saw so many people up dancing who normally wouldn’t be.

When you played High and Dry at the end of the night, my mates, who normally don’t go anywhere near the dance floor at any point, were spotted running from the bar to get involved.

During your much deserved break all the kids kept coming up to Claire and myself asking when the band were coming back on!

Hope you have an awesome day on your wedding day and wish you all the best for the future.

Thanks again for everything

Graham & Claire”

” WOW WOW WOW! Thank you for playing at our wedding couldn’t recommend this band more highly. They are so genuinely good and all my guests have been talking about them since. Well worth the money and who doesn’t just love a band at a wedding! Thank you guys you really made the evening!”

‘We got married on 7th July at The Vu, I found The Invitations through Coast Entertainment, I went to see them once and I loved them! So many people have commented on how amazing you guys are – you played such a good mixture of songs and you kept the dance floor full all night! You learned two songs of my choice for my first and second dances, you took into consideration my list of ‘definites’ that I picked from your huge set list, and then ceilidh set in the middle got everyone involved! I can only apologise it’s taken me so long to write a review, but this is a heart felt thank you from us to you! Mr & Mrs Barr x’

“Just wanted to say thank you so much for playing our wedding. We loved your rendition of our first dance song, and were so friendly and warm whenever we spoke. “Six more songs!” was the chant from our guests at the end of the night, a testament to how amazing you guys were. Thank you! Stephen & Gillian”

Mr. and Mrs. McKeown – 6/7/2017 – Dalmeny Park

 

“The Invitations,

You guys are truly AMAZING!! The Invitations played at our wedding in July and they were incredible! They definitely know how to keep the dance floor full and the energy and passion they put into each song is insane! My husband NEVER dances yet at our wedding he was never off the dance floor! All our guests commented on how amazing our band was! Any future brides and grooms that are considering booking The Invitations then do it!! You will not be disappointed!

“Hi Chris,

Just wanted to say another huge thank you to you and the rest of the band for playing at our wedding on Saturday.

We were really pleased with the band learning and playing our requested first dance song. We received so many compliments about you guys during and after our wedding. We would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone else!

Was nice to get the chance to speak to you at the end of the night as well. Good luck on your stag do and all the very best for you and Gail for your wedding in August.

Thanks again

Jonny & Kirstin Burns.”

Dear Chris

I’m just writing to say a huge thank you to you and the rest of the band for being so fantastic at our wedding on Saturday. The dance floor was always packed and all our guests have been raving about how great you were! You really helped make our wedding into the wonderful day that it was! We particularly liked the repertoire and the way you kept the tempo up all the way through.

Thank you also for doing the two Highland dancing numbers and for showing everyone what to do. Shahrazz and I did not have any time to practice unfortunately and I think that showed big time, but everyone loved taking part!

You truly were amazing and we will be recommending you to our friends for future weddings and important events.

Wishing you all the best and we hope to see you again somewhere else!

We are just about to go off on our honeymoon but wanted to say a quick thank you before we leave.

If you ever need any references or recommendations please let me know and I’ll be happy to help you out.

Best wishes
Gordon and Shahrazz”

Gordon and Shahrazz – 06/05/17 – Glasgow Hilton

What a band! With a seemingly endless repertoire, The Invitations have an uncanny ability to segue between songs that have no right being played back-to-back and they make it work beautifully. We’ve had several friends and family members contact us to ask for the band’s details and countless more who haven’t stopped raving about how amazing you were. Watch their videos on and if you are suitably impressed, trust us when we say that we were too. Trust us even more when we tell you that you ain’t seen nothing until you’ve seen them Live!
An exceptionally talented bunch of people who are genuinely lovely, clearly love playing together and will give you their all. We are very grateful for the massive part you played in making our wedding celebrations as special as we’d wanted them to be.”

Mr. and Mrs. Grant 15/4/2017 – West Brewery

“Hi Chris,

I just wanted to say a big thank you to you and the rest of the band for Saturday night. Martin and I thought you were great and lots of the guests said the same thing. You definitely helped to make it a fun evening!”

“Thank you so much guys! Chris and I had a fantastic time and loved dancing all night to you guys xx”

Mr. and Mrs. King 28/12/16 – Cottiers, Glasgow

“On behalf of Claire and I, I would just like to say a massive thanks for playing an absolutely awesome set at our wedding last night.

We were especially touched and impressed that you learnt our first dance song and performed superbly.

Like you said in your earlier post, the dance floor was jumping and the video you sent us has had us both in stitches with the variety of dancing ability on show, mine in particular being low in the talent department.

All the best with your future gigs, suffice to say we’ll be recommending you to anyone who is looking for a great band.

Cheers”

Mr. and Mrs. Evans 24/9/16 – Doubletree Hilton, Edinburgh

“Hi Chris,

Just to say you guys were amazing, so many compliments from our guests.I think some of them didn’t leave the dance floor all night.

Thanks again

Laura & Murray”

Mr. and Mrs. Pauline 17/9/16 – Norton Hall Hotel 

“Hi Chris,

Thank you for being totally incredible! You were better than we ever imagined and totally smashed our first dance song! (It was better than the original!!)
I just wish we could go back and do it all again…with a different caterer.(!!) You played amazing music, and brought everyone together. Everyone loved you and the balance of ceilidh and covers was just perfect – there isn’t a single negative I can think of.

Thank you so so much, and please let me know if there is anywhere you would like us to review you. Happy to spread the word as much aspossible!! I will be in touch with photos when we get them back.”

Mr. and Mrs. Gordon 10/9/16 – Gilmerton House

“Hi Chris,

Just wanted to say you guys were great, thanks again so much for putting on such a great gig. Absolutely loved our first dance and so many of our guests have said to us that you guys were the best wedding band they’ve seen. We had the best day & night ❤️. Hope you had a good drive back down to Glasgow and we’ll see you soon at another gig! Love The Fennells x”

Mr. and Mrs. Benson 30/8/16 – Norton House Hotel

“Hi guys,

We have just got home from a post wedding BBQ and all people wanted to talk about was our band – you absolutely blew the socks off our guests. Thank you for helping to make our day so special and we actually think your version of ‘You Got The Love’ is better than Florence and the Machine.

Again thank you so so much and we will get along to one of your next live sets for a post wedding celebration.”

Mr. and Mrs. Sterrick 30/7/16 – Argrennan Manor

“Thank you for making our wedding reception a night to remember! By catering to all music tastes you kept the dancefloor busy all night. Your version of La Vie En Rose was beautiful!

We hope you had a blast playing, I was more than a little gutted to be mingling and not dancing at times but such is hosting!…We are greatful you made the long journey up to see us, I’m sure it’s not the last time we will be seeing you.
Thank you so much again, we are going to spread your nomination around our family and friends, it is truly well deserved.”

Just a little note to say a huge THANK YOU for your enthusiasm, creativity and energy on the lead up to our wedding day and on the wedding day itself. You really were fantastic on the night and everyone enjoyed dancing all night to your amazing sets. Thank you again and good luck for the future.’

Mr. and Mrs. Gill 4/6/16 – Archerfield House

“I’d like to extend a big thank you to The Invitations who performed at our wedding on 29th May 2016 in St Andrews. They were absolutely fantastic and we could not have been happier. So many people came up to us during the wedding and afterwards to ask where we’d found them and to remark on how bloody good they were!
It meant the world to me to have such a professional outfit come to the wedding and completely smash every song they sung.
Top marks. The best. Thank you! When we get the proper photos back we’ll share some with you.

Mr. and Mrs. O’Hanlon 29/05/16 – Rufflets, St. Andrews.

“I highly recommend The Invitations, a fantastic band, that not only performs well but provide a friendly and professional service from the moment you book them!
I want to thank you guys for playing our wedding on 21.5.2016, you guys where amazing! Everyone is still raving about how good you were! We look forward to seeing you play again!”

Mr and Mrs McClements 21/5/2016 – Dalziel Park

“Hi Chris,

Just wanted to say you guys were excellent at our wedding reception and were completely professional through out. The dance floor was always busy and loads of people commented on how great you were. Thanks also for learning our first dance song so beautifully and for being so quick in getting back to my emails about arrangements. I have been recommending you guys to everyone!

Thanks Again,”

Mr. and Mrs. Carss 7/11/15

“Thank you so much guys !! You were absolutely AWESOME !!! We had an absolute ball and so did all our guests , who have all been commenting how fantastic you were. THANK YOU !!!!!”

Mr. and Mrs. Gray 15/8/15

“Thank you all for such an amazing performance at our fundraiser, ‘The Legacy Ball’. The occasion, as you know, meant so much to my family and your excellent ‘customer service’, shown by responding quickly to any queries prior to the event and kindly accommodating our song requests for the night, was hugely appreciated. We raised an incredible £22,500 for Cancer Research! Your presence undoubtedly contributed to our success. Many of our guests commented on how great the band were and you only had to look at the dance floor (which at times was over spilling, it was so full) to see that everyone was having a great time. We have been asked for your contact details by a few of the guests and (if we are ever feeling up to it!) we wouldn’t hesitate to book ‘The Invitations’ to play at any future fundraisers. In fact, we would love to see you guys again. Sincere ‘Thank You!’ from us all.”

Kind regards
Lauren and family
