Top Tips For Choosing Your Wedding Music

Choosing your wedding music can be stressful, especially as you’ll want everything to be perfect.

Whether you’re worried about forgetting a favourite song or you’re worried your guests won’t enjoy your choices, the entire process of finalising wedding music fills many couples with dread.

However, help is at hand.

Here are our top tips:

Ask friends and family for their input

It’s always a good idea to ask friends and family for their input in your wedding music, as there are sure to be songs you will have forgotten about.

Additionally, as they will be guests at the wedding it’s helpful to know what sort of music they would like to hear.

After all, they’ll be the ones you want up and dancing!

Choose a range of genres and moods

Throughout the wedding reception there are different events that take place, such as the father/daughter dance and cutting the cake.

So, make sure you choose a range of genres and moods.

This will mean you have upbeat songs for when people are dancing and slower songs for more romantic moments.

Plus, it’ll keep guests of all ages happy.

Choose songs that mean something to you

If there are any special songs or songs that mean something to you, make sure you add them to the list.

A lot of couples and families have songs that remind them of a specific occasion, and playing these can make the entire day that little bit more personal.

Make a list of songs you don’t want played

There are bound to be some songs you hate.

Whether it’s one song or an entire album, you won’t want to hear it at your wedding, so make sure you tell the wedding DJ any songs to avoid.

Not only does this ensure all of your wedding music is music that you like, but it’ll also make the wedding DJ’s job a lot easier.

Ask the expert – wedding DJs know what’s best!

Sometimes, the expert really does know best.

After spending years choosing music for a variety of weddings, wedding DJs will have a great idea of what songs are a ‘must have’ and what songs should be avoided.

Plus, they’ll be able to provide an insight into the most popular choices and the songs that go down best with a large crowd.

Though it’s your wedding and your opinion is key, it’s always good to have an expert to bounce ideas off.
