WEDDING MUSIC AND WEDDING RECEPTION MUSIC
One thing that make picking out your WEDDING MUSIC and WEDDING RECEPTION MUSIC difficult is thinking that you have to pick out a lot of music. Some WEDDING DJ companies will send you a form or an online link and ask you to pick 50-100 songs for your WEDDING MUSIC and WEDDING RECEPTION MUSIC.
In our opinion that is wrong! If you hired a great WEDDING DJ he/she is an expert at sizing up the crowd and playing the right music and taking requests from your guests. It’s been our experience that the less music the bride and groom pick the more fun everybody has. When picking your WEDDING RECEPTION MUSIC keep in mind that your personal taste in music may not appeal to ANY of your guests.
Here at A BETTER DJ AND PHOTOGRAPHER we have an email planner that has a built in time-line where he bride and groom just put in what time they want to do each event and what song they would like to have for it. At the bottom there is a place for 10 requests that we mix into the dinner and dance music depending on the song.
Here are the WEDDING MUSIC and WEDDING RECEPTION MUSIC songs that the bride and groom SHOULD pick out:
AT THE WEDDING (WEDDING MUSIC)
- Guest entry music (about 15 minutes)
- Processional (when the bridal party comes down the aisle)
- Bridal March (bride comes down the aisle)
- Recessional (the song the newlyweds and the bridal party exit to)
AT THE RECEPTION (WEDDING RECEPTION MUSIC) the bride and groom should pick out:
- Grand entry song
- 1st dance
- Father/daughter dance
- Mother/son dance
- Garter removal song*
- Bouquet toss song*
- Catchers’ song* (the people that catch the bouquet and garter)
- Cake cutting song*
- Last dance
*If you hired a great WEDDING DJ he/she can pick these songs for you
