 RECEPTION MUSIC SELECTIONS

CONGRATULATIONS!

 

Although it is your special day, you should consider the musical

tastes of your guests along with your own.

 

I meet with many brides and grooms, and once in a while I

encounter an occasional music issue.  Once in a while, a bride or

groom will have a misguided vision of their reception,

or want to carry a 'theme' too far.

 

One bride I met only wanted Country music played at her reception

because it was the only music she liked.  I explained the different

reactions we might create by not considering the other 200

guests at her reception, but she insisted.

 

Reluctantly, we agreed to go with her plan.  As I expected,

after only 20 minutes a guest rushed to the DJ booth and

asked, 'Is this all we are going to hear all night?'.  I was instructed

by the bride to send all requests directly to her, so I did.  

 

After half the guests voiced their opinion to her and not dancing,

she finally came to the booth and told us to do what we had to do.  

We packed the dancefloor with a perfect program of popular music

mixed with requests and classic party jams.  We would occasionally

bounce back to Country for segues to keep her theme going.  It was

an incredible success.  Since that experience, we make sure that

we are a good match in every way with our couples.

 

If you have a theme, like 'Country' for example, it is perfectly ok

and expected that you play a variety of musical styles in 'sets',

perfectly programmed to keep your guests dancing, hitting

the bar, and having a great time.  

 

You can use your cocktail hour music, your entrance song,

and other formality songs to carry your 'theme', but go ahead and play

what the crowd wants! Your guests will be pleasantly

relieved that they will hear their favorite tunes.  

 

Have fun!
