Savvy tools for savvy brides

Build the perfect wedding reception music playlist.

There are three things you need to consider when putting together your own playlist:

The type of wedding you’re having: Are you having a morning brunch — or an evening affair? Do you want a quiet evening, or a rowdy dance-party?

The guests you’re inviting: Are they the dancing kind, or do they prefer to sit with a glass of wine and chat? Are they older or younger?

What YOU like: I’m assuming this is self-explanatory. It’s your wedding — do what you want with it. And have fun.

From here you can figure out what kind of music you may want to include and how much you’re going to need. A good estimate is to have about 3-4 hours of dance-able music for after mealtime.

To get you on your way to wedding-reception playlist-success, here a few suggestions for selecting your music:

Different generations generally enjoy different styles of music: The best way to balance this out is to include well-known music from all eras. So throw in some Sinatra or Dean Martin for Grandma (or mom and dad), and Lady Gaga or Black Eyed Peas for your friends.

A safe ground can often be found in 70s and 80s music. Journey, Queen, old-school Bryan Adams, and similar, usually appeal to guests of all ages.

Break up a dance section with a slower selection every four or five songs. Fun, fast music is what most often gets people on the dance floor. But, everyone needs a breather.Have a large variety of music. End the night on a strong note. Send your guests home with a rousing song that’ll get them up and dancing and singing at the top of their lungs. Choose something that’ll leave them with nothing but amazing memories!
