Movin’ and Groovin’ from Ceremony Through Reception

An acoustic guitar alongside a pure voice singing Jack Johnson as you walk down the aisle is what you have always dreamed of. However, something more up tempo for the reception allowing your guests get up and shake it on the dance floor is a must. The music you choose for each grand entrance, special moment, and dance will set the mood.

Here are a few ideas and pointers about music type throughout your wedding day:

Ceremony and First Dance – Music should not the center of attention. These moments are about the couple and music should reflect them without overpowering. These would be a great times for that solo guitarist singing your special songs.

Cocktail Hour and Dinner – Music should be in the background while your guests mingle or eat. This time it is all about playlist and song choices, a DJ, band, or solo musician would fit well here.

Reception – After your first dance to the acoustic version of I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing you may want to pick up the tempo with a little Michael Jackson or Maroon 5. Here would be a great time to have a DJ because the playlist is virtually limitless so grandma, your college roommates, and your 8 year old nephew will all have a blast!

 Everybody Dance Now!
