As I write this blog post, “Southern Girl” by Frankie Beverly and Maze is playing on my iphone. They are one of my fav artists and is in regular rotation on my playlist. Ahhh…..the word “playlist”.
When planning your wedding reception, have you thought about your playlist? This can be a daunting task but a necessary one. I’m going to give you five things to consider when choosing your music for your reception.
What’s the vibe of the wedding? i.e. formal, tented, party
Consider your guest list? Do they prefer to party or quietly socialize with each other?
- What’s the age of your guest? Try to include songs that will accommodate the masses.
- How long will the reception last? You would want to include enough songs so the guest won’t have to hear the same songs more than once unless it’s a highly popular song.
- Last but certainly not least, don’t forget to choose a special song for your first dance.
With these questions answered, it will make for a smooth meeting with your reception DJ. What is your favorite song playing on your iphone or what fav song will be playing at your reception?
