Wedding Music Mistakes To Avoid On Your Big Day

When it comes to planning a wedding, there’s a lot to think about and often small mistakes are made.

Though these are usually minor and rarely impact the day, it’s always good to try to avoid them wherever possible.

Organising wedding music can be stressful, so it should come as no surprise that wedding music mistakes often occur. Here are some of the common mistakes to avoid:

Here are some common wedding music mistakes.

Failing to research your wedding DJ

It is important to do research on your wedding DJ before you finalise anything.

Though a wedding DJ may come highly recommended, it’s vital that you take the time to check out reviews and to meet them in person.

Everyone has very different visions of how they’d like their wedding music to be, and it’s important that the wedding DJ you choose is able to achieve this.

Waiting until the big day to meet your wedding DJ

Though it is possible to meet your wedding DJ on the big day, it isn’t advised.

To avoid any mishaps or miscommunication, arrange to meet with them in the lead up to the event.

During this time you can discuss the type of music you want and any songs you don’t want.

Plus, it’s a good opportunity to find out a little bit more about them and where their expertise lies.

Forgetting to do a soundcheck

A lot of people forget to do a sound check before their big day, which can mean disaster strikes if the venue has poor sound quality or any noise restrictions.

Talk to the owners of the venue and find out what type of music generally works best in that space, and then check your music choice sounds great.

Not highlighting any ‘must play’ songs

There are bound to be a few songs you really want to hear at your wedding, but failing to highlight these to the wedding DJ could mean you don’t hear them at all.

Though it isn’t the end of the world if a specific song doesn’t play, it would be a shame to end your big day without having heard everything you wanted to.

Though these wedding music mistakes are unlikely to completely ruin the event, they can put a damper on certain things.

Instead of leaving it to chance and hoping for the best, take the time to plan your wedding music well in advance.
