Wedding Reception Music Wedding General Party Tips
Wedding Reception Music
We all know how important a good DJ is to a successful wedding reception, especially one that your guests and family will be talking about for years to come. The DJ’s duties for the four to six hours of your reception are;
• Acting as the Master of Ceremonies
o Introduction of the Bride and Groom
o Introduction of the Bridal Party and Families
o Parent Dances
o Cake Cutting
o Garter and Bouquet Toss
• Playing continuous music
• Keeping your scheduled events in order
• Maintaining the musical entertainment of your choice
• Keep the Wedding Reception running smoothly
The music played for your reception can fall into four major categories:
• Ceremony Music
• Cocktail Hour
• Dinner Music
• Dance and celebration time
They are all important and should be carefully chosen by the Bride and Groom, always taking recommendations from the DJ.
As a DJ Wedding Professional of twenty years, I find that many DJ’s fall short in keeping Dinner music fun, entertaining and appropriate. Too many DJ’s place a CD like “Kenny G” or “Frank Sinatra” on and “take a break”, not really tending to the party! They have an attitude that “they are only eating dinner”. This period of time is an opportunity to reflect on both families ethnic heritage, recall of fond memories of school days, birthdays, anniversaries and special dances between family members.
My point is that during your special day, no opportunity should be missed in providing your party with the most professional and emotional entertainment. My recommendations come from performing over 1,000 Wedding Receptions. This is a day you and family will always remember.
Listed below is just a small sample of music I would recommend for a fun Dinner hour, knowing that it should be personalized for every reception:
