9 Tips for Selecting Perfect Wedding Music with Your DJ
Music selection for your wedding is just as important as choosing the perfect dress and booking a skilled photographer. Where should you begin? The information below will help you get started.
Picture Your Dream Wedding
Think about your ideal wedding before you do anything else. Close your eyes and picture the entire event in your mind. What do you hear playing in the background? What emotions do you experience?
Pick a Theme
Now think about the kind of songs you you’d love to hear during your wedding. Do you have a preference for the classics? What about jazz or pop? Do you want the music to strongly convey your personality?
Include Music Requests in Your Invitations
A great way to learn what your guests would dance to is simply to ask them. A way to go about doing this is by including a song request sentence in the RSVP section of your invitations. What song would get you on the dance floor is a great question to ask. Obviously you don’t have to include everyone’s requests; however, many of the suggestions could be quite helpful.
Choose Songs for Key Moments
It’s a good idea to have songs ready for key moments during the wedding. For example, you might want something festive to play when you cut the cake.
Think about Your Guests
Remember, you’re inviting people who might not have the same musical tastes as you. Think about the different age groups that will be present and plan accordingly. For example, for older guests try to select songs that were popular when they were young adults.
Create a Do Not Playlist
You never really know what people will request, so decide ahead of time which songs or styles of music are off limits. Your guests may ask for songs you never would have imagined or wanted to hear.
Make a List As You Go Along
With a notebook or cell phone it’s easy to jot down information about songs that appeal to you. Did you hear something catchy on the radio? Maybe one of your friends has a suggestion.
Plan Ahead Of Time
Don’t wait until a week before the wedding before you decide which music is important to you. This will only stress you out.
Don’t be afraid to talk to your DJ. They will have the experience necessary to help you make decisions. Together, you can come up with something great.
