Music is a big deal for your wedding day. Music drives the mood and creates the overall ambiance of the day related to your guests’ experience. When you begin the process of planning your wedding, the details you are developing will coincide with the style of the day. You want to figure out what that background music sounds like to you and your fiancé. We want to help you by sharing simple and easy ways to select your wedding day music.
Start with the particulars
The easiest way to develop your wedding day playlist for your DJ is to start with songs for the ceremony and reception particulars. Determining the music for your processional, your entrance into the reception, your first dance, and even the song you want to use for opening the dance floor will help tremendously with pulling everything else together that your DJ will need.
Bring them to the dance floor
In case the first tip is still giving you a bit of trouble, think about the songs you want as music for the dance floor. Thinking of what you want to dance all night long to can give your DJ a great amount of detail of you as a couple. They can then make a few suggestions to inspire you both on what you can possibly use for the other areas that need music.
Don’t play “that” song
There is power in determining what you know you do not want to hear at your wedding. Most professional DJs can pick up on what your vibe is from a handful of questions or other songs you share with them that you want. We have seen some couples get really critical over the exact music they want for specific things but know for sure what they do not want to hear. If that is you, fret not. Make a list of what you absolutely don’t want and share it with your DJ. Trust us, it will help more than you know.
Music is an essential part of life and helps you convey whatever message you want to communicate. It can truly be simple and easy to select your wedding day music. But if you are struggling with this task, we hope we have shared some tips that can really help.
Until next time…
be sweet & happy planning!
