Choosing the Best Style of Music for your Wedding Reception

Posted in: , , ,

Your wedding reception is a very special occasion. It’s a time when you bring your friends and family together to celebrate and congratulate you on your new union as life partners together. If you want your reception to be fondly remembered by your guests and yourselves, then you need great wedding music to enhance the special moments of your big day.

How do you go about choosing the right music for your wedding reception? Booking a band for your New Jersey wedding is essential but what style and gene will suit your reception best? The first place to start is to think of everyone and putting together a list of the age groups you are expecting at your reception. Remember to include something for everyone, not just what you want to hear. Next, think about your reception theme and the atmosphere that you want to create with your music.

If you need a few tips, then take the following tips into consideration when making your final selection of the best music to suit your wedding reception.

Looking to dance? – Rock & Roll or a Motown band are your best bet to keep the dance floor packed and raging all night long.

Sophisticated swing – A little bit of class and refinement that can either be a low-tempo chill set, or a high-tempo swing set, great for any venue.

Background Beauty – Classical music, a string quartet, or a DJ spinning trip-hop, it’s all about the audience and what they would prefer

A little bit of Everything – Let a DJ save your wedding reception. DJ’s have a huge repertoire and can arrange a custom playlist.

Choosing the Track for your First Dance

Your first dance is a statement of your love for each other that you will share with the crowd. If you don’t have a ‘special song’ that you share together, then one of these classics listed below will make a fine first dance. Ask your live band or DJ to play it as you take to the floor and blow your guests away with a romantic first dance that expresses your love for one another.

‘Have I Told You Lately’ – Rod Stewart
‘Love Me Tender – Elvis Presley
‘Nobody Does It Better’ – Carly Simon
‘Everything I do, I do it for You’ - Bryan Adams
‘Angels’ by Robbie Williams
‘Close to you’ – the Carpenters
‘Every Breath You Take’ – The Police

Wrapping Up

Selecting the right wedding music to reflect your theme while keeping the crowd happy isn’t as hard as you think. Rely on the professionals to get it done for you. Whether you hire a live band, a DJ, or both, make sure they come with plenty of referrals and client testimonials.

All that's left to do is enjoy the party! Congratulations on your engagement and make your wedding day and reception a cracker to remember with the best entertainment you can find!
