There are many things couples need to do when it comes to planning their wedding and especially when it comes to their wedding reception. During the wedding reception the most beautiful things happens, mostly because this is the way in which people decide to celebrate their beautiful union, by sharing the emotional moment with all of their closest friends and family members.
One of the most important things in the entire wedding reception is the music. Given that at wedding parties people need to have fun, there is no better way to assure the fun but by playing the perfect music. The traditional American wedding reception start with the first dance of the bride and groom, is then followed by the father-bride dance and mother-groom dance and then, the dance floor can be invaded by all the wedding guests. You can play anything, from Adele (with tracks such as “Someone Like You” or “Rolling in the Deep”) to Lady Gaga (ideal when you are looking for a track with a little more rhythm).
The music chosen for the wedding reception is extremely important, as it needs to include all types of songs, as there are different people at the wedding and each and every one of them has their own preferences in terms of the music they listen to. Usually, the music chosen for a wedding reception needs to be the kind of music people can dance on. Therefore, the songs mostly played are either slow and romantic, so as to encompass the entire emotion of the event, or full of rhythm, so as to allow people to dance. Even so, you need some slow songs, classic love ones like “Dust in the Wind”, “Careless Whisper” or “Nothing’s Gonna Change My Love for You.”
The best thing couples can do for their wedding reception is either to have a very varied playlist or to hire a band, to make sure they please each and every guest. As I said, it is very important to be able to please all your guests and there is no better way to do it than to give them all a chance to dance on a song they know. Music is very important and it needs to be carefully chosen, especially when you are making your playlist for the wedding reception. What most people today seem to forget is that there will be older people at the wedding and they should take them into account as well when they are choosing the songs that will play at the reception.
Today’s music is quite full of rhythm, but it is mostly for young people, who know how to dance on it. This is why there is a certain type of music which couples decide to choose for their wedding reception. Usually, at wedding receptions are played songs which are quite famous, old songs, which even our grandparents know, so as to give everyone present a chance to go to the dance floor and share a dance. Therefore, the best thing couples can do is go online and take a look at what the most famous wedding songs are. What they will find is old music, which is quite slow and romantic, perfect for slow dancing. There are also some other types of songs, which are full of rhythm and they usually are perfect for dancing in groups.
Music is a very important element in the entire wedding reception and couples should think very well about what type of songs they are going to include in their wedding playlist. If you do not want to have issues and problems with this particular thing, you can always hire a band to come play at the wedding. They are more expensive than a DJ, but they will surely get the stress out of your shoulders.
The best thing about wedding bands is that they can play basically anything you may ask them to and this is why they are so popular among couples who want to get married. They are like a computer, but better and live.
