You've got to be kidding!!!
Sure, I'd be happy to bring my band in and play for your 500 wedding guests for free. We'd be happy to set up in the afternoon, play for cocktail hour, and for five hours later that evening, all the while being fun and energetic. After the gig is done (after 1 AM), we'll tear down our gear and head home, having enjoyed "some free drinks and maybe free food", and rejoicing in knowing this was good for our portfolio and in the knowledge that we received the best compensation of all...that's right, fun!
Best of luck with that fantasy, doesn't even look good on paper.
If you folks have 500 people coming to your wedding reception at the Pfister Hotel (or the Hilton, for the other dope-smoking fool that wanted a cheap photographer for their so-called high class event), and you discover you can't afford a dime for a band or DJ, better take a big step back, check your spoiled Bridezilla attitude at the door, and look at your budget. Stronger glasses might help, too.
In the meantime, stop wasting the time of those that try to make a living providing a quality entertainment service. On second thought, I do hope you find someone to play for free. After they've drunk all your booze, gone back for thirds at dinner and thrown cake at each other, maybe they'll remember enough songs to make it through a couple of sets before one of them gets sick or craps in their pants.
Enjoy your "off the hook" event.
