Do you have a vision for the perfect wedding song? Are you constantly looking for new songs to add to your playlist or just browsing through Spotify while working on other projects at home? We’ve got some great ideas and tips that will save you time and help make your big day one of the best days ever.
Prepare your energy in advance
It’s clear that the success of a wedding is dependent upon many factors, one being music. A pleasant playlist can make or break your event! If you’re having an outdoor country-themed affair in front of a barn with lots of greenery and nature surrounding it, then playing soft folk songs will create just the right atmosphere to transport everyone into another world.
What if instead of playing the regular wedding music, you played modern party jams to get people excited about your reception? The best way is by preluding with a few songs that are tailored specifically for the theme. This will give guests something fun and upbeat to settle in on while waiting for everyone else to arrive.
The spice of life is variety
Music can be a great way to bring you and your partner closer together. With the initial sound, it doesn’t matter what genre or mood you like best because there should always be an equal mixture of each other’s favorite songs!
Rather than focusing on just the music of one genre, a diverse list throughout the night will turn background music into an immersive soundtrack that is as memorable as food or venue. You can diversify your playlist while still sticking to the theme by weaving in some choice favorites with ambient thematic tunes.
It’s all about the timing
Music is an integral part of any celebration. When planning the soundtrack for your big day, make sure to consider how you want it to affect those around you. Your guests will enjoy a cohesive party if they are able to continue enjoying their favorite music as time goes on and throughout different areas in your home or venue! Keep high-energy songs saved for later so that people won’t have to choose between eating dinner and dancing all night long!
Add some more energy as guests are transitioning to the reception hall with high tempo songs, keep a few slower tracks during food service for people who need rest and replenishment. Save dance-floor fillers until after meal when the party recharges or slows down.
Don’t be shy about showcasing your favorite throwbacks
Why do some songs become a cliche for weddings? It may be because they have a certain ring to them! A sense of familiarity. Even if people are cringing, when the right song comes on it can get everyone out onto that floor and dancing. Whether you know all the words or not, this is just one more chance to show someone how much you care about them through music! This is your day, and so the only person you need to make happy with song choice is yourself. As a result of this, don’t shy away from putting on any songs that meet your fancy!
You’re about to have the day of your life, and there’s nothing you can do that will please everyone. But it doesn’t matter because this is all for you! Your friends might tease you over those pop-punk tracks from years ago, or even scare off potential in-laws with their hidden love for death metal but who cares? Make sure the playlist stays personal and pure – only listen to what you like with your partner on an unforgettable wedding day.
