Choosing wedding music

first-danceDeciding on the music for different parts of your wedding day

By now you will have signed up a deejay and/or musicians, so the fun begins deciding what kind of music you will play at the wedding.

You will have hopefully chosen a deejay who can cater for your taste in music. If you are Hispanic, for instance, make sure you choose a deejay who has a good selection of Latin tunes!

It isn’t realistic to expect to be able to plan exactly which songs are played and in which order, but a good deejay will respect your wishes.

Even though the bride and groom’s music preferences will obviously prevail, you will want to provide a mix of music to keep everybody happy:

- Seniors love to dance, so make sure there is music suitable for them.

- Plan to play a selection of novelty songs to get everyone up on the dance floor together.

- The latest pop tunes will be a hit amongst teenage guests, who are often overlooked at weddings and family events.

Providing a good mix of sounds will keep the party hopping! It is also a good idea to tell your deejay if there is any particular song or type of music that you do not want played at your reception.
