An essential element of setting the mood for any special event is the music. When it comes to planning the details of your wedding, you’ll want to make sure that the song selections suit the theme of your big day, as well as the personality and taste of you and your soon-to-be spouse. Here are some tips to take the stress and guesswork out of planning.
Perhaps one of the most important decisions is your first dance song. Choosing the right song will make your first dance as a married couple all the more memorable for you both. With the array of songs to choose from, as well as possible differences in music taste between you and your partner, there are some steps you can take to make a compromise. You might try first deciding on a genre, which will narrow down your options and help you find a common ground. Also think of whether you’d prefer a traditional classic, or a contemporary hit. Pick something nostalgic that brings back memories you’ve shared together, or with lyrics that are reminiscent of your love story.
Of course, you’ll need a great playlist to keep your guests on the dance floor throughout your entire reception. You might sit down with your fiancé and brainstorm ideas for songs that both of you would like played at some point during the night, especially for mother/father dances, wedding party dances, and so forth. If you’re still struggling for ideas, try reaching out to your guests for song requests or suggestions. You’ll also want to create a “do not play” list of songs that don’t suit the atmosphere you’re creating for your special day.
