Choosing the Music for Your Wedding Reception

When it comes to planning your wedding, you have to see to it that you choose everything carefully. From your decorations to your food, everything you choose will need to coincide with the other details of your wedding. One of the important things that you need to prepare for your wedding is your music during your reception. Since music plays an important role in bringing out emotion, you have to choose songs that have a special meaning in your life.


Here are some of the parts of the wedding reception where music needs to be chosen carefully:

Opening Songs

During this portion of the wedding reception, everyone will be settling in after the ceremony has taken place. For this, you can have your wedding DJ prepare some upbeat and party songs. You can also go for slow songs that will make people smile such as Frank Sinatra’s ‘Just The Way You Look Tonight.’

Dinner Music

While having dinner, you can have some songs played. You can go over the song selection and choose the ones that have a relaxing tempo—not too slow, not too fast. This way, your guests will not feel like they are being hurried to finish chewing their food.

Father-Daughter Dance

Taken as a way the father says goodbye to his daughter, you should pick out a song that you and your dad can dance along to. This is a very special moment between the two of you, which is why you have to choose a song that says as much.

First Dance

Traditionally, you need to pick out a song that best describes your relationship with your husband. During your first dance, you have to pick out a song beforehand so that you can practice dancing along to it.

When everything has been taken care of, your wedding DJ can already start playing upbeat songs that your guests can dance to. In celebration of your new union with your husband, you can party throughout the night and enjoy what’s left of the night.
