The Biggest Mistakes That Are Made When Choosing Wedding Music

It is no secret that when you are planning a wedding there is lots to think about.

Chances are that you will consider the music as a relatively low priority.

However, this could be the first big mistake that you make.

The music at your ceremony and reception is important.

Not only does it capture the romance of the day, but it is also a big part of the atmosphere too.

This means that you should really try to pay attention to the music you choose.

If couples do find the time to think about music then there is still a chance that they may commit some of the common mistakes.

To help to avoid this, we have put together the biggest mistakes that can be made and how to avoid them.

Make sure the DJ can build up the pace

Even the keenest of wedding guests can take a while to get onto the dancefloor.

This means that there is absolutely no point in getting the DJ to bang out all the party classics straight away.

Instead, you should make sure that your DJ knows that they need to build up the pace, starting slow and then cranking up to the party tunes later on in the night.

That way you can encourage people onto the dancefloor, then keep them there.

Be open to suggestions and be able to make suggestions

A failure in communication between a couple and a DJ can have a real impact on the wedding music that is played.

Not only should you be able to accept recommendations made by the DJ that you have chosen, but you should also feel comfortable be able to offer your own ideas.

After all, the DJ may know what music works well at a wedding reception, but you know your own music tastes, and the tastes of your friends too.

Remember your audience

Just because you love a particular genre of music, not everyone at your wedding reception may agree.

Of course, you need to make sure that you have a bit of your own personality in the evening, but you should also be aware of your guests.

This is also telling for those that have younger guests, which means that you will need to think of tunes that are okay for a whole age range.

Ideally, you should plan in enough time to be able to properly think about the music that you are going to have playing and at what point of the evening it is appropriate.

By doing this, you can be sure to have an amazing wedding reception, a packed dancefloor and an evening that every single guest will remember for years to come!
