Music is a very integral part of every wedding reception. Music sets the tone and theme of your event. Not only the style of music but also the tempo will influence your guests’ mood. Having a wedding music playlist will help you plan out not only the order of events but also what will be the most important elements.

So there you have it. A standard wedding music playlist for a wedding reception. We hope this helps you plan out the order of events and the types of music you would want for your wedding day.
Music played during the wedding reception starts as soon as the first guest arrives and does not stop until the last guest leaves – technically. If you were to hire a DJ to play wedding reception songs, the music should never stop as all music is pre-recorded. However, if you hire a band to perform music at your wedding reception, then they could take scheduled, much needed, breaks during the night. If you were to hire background music musicians such as pianist and quartets, for cocktail and dinner-time then they typically do not take breaks as they are playing for smaller amounts of time.
Your wedding reception songs should be determined by your type of event. You would only play jazz music during cocktail hour if your wedding’s decor and style matches the upscale theme of jazz music.Let’s start by laying out what portions of your wedding reception will need songs played. Of course, if no songs are played, it would add an unexpected focus to the moment as well.
Wedding Reception Songs
Wedding reception sections that need music:
Cocktail and appetizer time
Bouquet and garter processes
Now that you have a list of each part of a wedding reception, you need to decide what styles of music you want for each section. Our guide is not a must-do or end all to wedding reception songs. It is just a helpful guide.
Wedding Reception Songs – Cocktail Hour
When guests arrive at a wedding reception, they are excited and ready to be entertained. They really don’t want to be rocked to sleep. We do suggest jazz and adult contemporary styles of music for the cocktail hour. However, it cannot rock your guests to sleep. This is the start to a grand event but should put them in a good mood, not in a docile one. Play music like George Benson’s song On Broadway and Frank Sinatra’s Fly Me To The Moon. These songs are considered jazz classics but will also not rock your guests to sleep.
Wedding Reception Songs – Grand Entrance
Grand Entrance songs announce you, the bridal couple, to all of your wedding guests. It’s the official title should be: here we are and let’s party! The song should put the spotlight on the bride and groom but also put guests in a frame of mind to relax and have little fun.
Wedding Reception Songs – Eating Time
Dinner music typically is very similar to the cocktail hour. Even if you have a classy event, we still do not recommend playing classical music. We also do not suggest playing romantic jazz classics. We suggest playing music that will fill time but also gradually gain tempo through the night. You want to create the anticipation for the dancing music.
Wedding Reception Songs – Cake Cutting
Cake cutting songs typically have the theme of the act of cutting the cake or the sweet dessert wedding cake. However, this also can be one of those times when no music played can create a focus on the event itself. If no music is played, guests will know that a special event is occurring.
Wedding Reception Songs – Formal Dances
Formal dances can be as simple as only having the first dance song of the bride and groom. Formal dances can also include the father daughter dance, mother son dance, bridal party dance, money dance and many others. IT is up to you what formal dance songs you want at your wedding. However, we do suggest that each song have special meaning to each dancer.
Wedding Reception Songs – Bouquet and Garter
The bouquet and garter toss events usually have accompanying songs playing during the activities. These include the bouquet toss, garter removal, garter toss, and garter placement. Each activity can have its very own custom song.
Wedding Reception Songs – Party Music
The wedding reception songs to be played during the party music should be primarily left up to the music providers. They should know how to read the crowd and play what will fill the dance floor. However, the bridal couple should give some initial guidance as to the music style preferred by themselves and their friends. If you know that you and all of your family and friends prefer country music and would fill the dance floor, you must convey that to the music provider in preparation to have the correct style of music for your event. You should also provide a list of music you prefer not to be played during your reception. Check out our list of best party songs to fill the dance floor at your wedding reception!
Wedding Reception Songs – Special Dedications
Special dedications are not saved until last because they should be played last. It is because they can be played throughout the whole night. We left out a section for the last dance song as we feel the last dance is a kind of special dedication from the bridal couple to their wedding guests. Special dedications can also be played for loved ones lost.
In order to help bridal couples to plan their weddings, we put together a wedding reception worksheet. The worksheet gives a helpful list of everything you will need for your wedding reception songs. Please also review our common format of a wedding reception article to know the standard order of events.
A great way to get guest mingling and catching up on each others’ happenings is to have a cocktail hour. Cocktail hours for weddings typically take place after the ceremony and before the reception. However, have you thought of having a cocktail hour before the wedding? We are not saying an open bar. The time waiting for the wedding to start may be a great time to offer a specialized drink.
So many times you think of mixed drinks with hard alcohol, champagne and wine for your specialty wedding drink. But, and that is a big butt like Sir Mix-A-Lot size, craft beers are vastly popular. Select the right beer choices. We are not talking about offering just one specific style of beer. We’re talking about a mixed beer drink!
5 Surprisingly Good Mixed Beer Drinks
Having a summer wedding? We recommend a lighter and fruitier type of beer mixture. This is where the the Bananenweizen comes walking in. It is made of a Hefeweizen beer and banana juice. Common craft beer Hefeweizens include Pyramid Hefeweizen, Widmer Hefeweizen and Schlafly Hefeweizen. A perfect garnish would be dried banana chips.
Another summer beer drink is the Blood Orange Shandy. It is made with a light lager, including Miller Light, Bud Light, or Michelob Ultra, and sparkling blood orange juice. Fresh mint makes a great garnish. Giada offers the recipe on her website.
For winter weddings you may want a beer mixture that warms you up a bit. If so, try the Spicy Muchelada. The beverage includes a light Mexican beer like Corona Light and Pacifico, honey and smoked paprika. See the complete recipe here. Don’t forget the salted rim glass and sliced lime garnish.
Dark and full bodied beers are typically in season in the colder months. One way to make many type of beer enthusiasts happy is to offer the famous black and tan. The black and tan is a mixture of Guinness Draught and Harp Lager. The best part is the cool effect of the drink as it separates the Guinness on top with the Lager on the bottom (like oil and water). However, it MUST be poured properly. Learn how to pour a black and tan before offering to wedding guests.
Hate the taste of beer? We dare you to try a Lambic Sangria! This even has two different kinds of beers in it. One is a witbier, like Blue Moon and Alaskan White, and a lambic, like Lindemans Framboise. You must also include raspberries and an orange if it is sangria! See the complete recipe.
In conclusion, just because you have a specialty drink doesn’t mean you have to have margaritas or daiquiris. Think outside of the norm and go with a mixed beer drink or play some beer songs!
Wedding guests want to be Wow’d when at a wedding reception. No, wait. Let me rephrase. Wedding guests EXPECT to be blown away at your wedding. They want an experience like no other. Guests want surprises and want to do and see things that they have not done before your big day. What can you do to give guest the Wow factor?
People attending a wedding, like to feel like they are part of the festivities. One way to make it so is to have a party train through the streets of your wedding city. The train could be a line of honking cars driving from the wedding to the reception. The party train could also be a short walk from the ceremony to the reception venue. Take the party train idea over the top with music being played along the way from a group of bagpipers, members of the local high school band, or even a blaring vintage boom box.
Wedding Wow Factor
Wow Factor Props for Wedding Guests
Plan your posed wedding pictures in advance. First and foremost, do not keep wedding guests waiting for the party to get started at the reception from your long list of must-have photos. However, much fun can be had with photographs. Consult your photographer and get one-of-a-kind photographs of family and friends at the wedding and reception. Include corny or crazy props for Wow photos. An example would be to bring a red painted house door for pics on each side, park a classic car for photographs or a gigantic picture frame to get attending couples photographed together inside the frame. You are only limited by your imagination.
Oh how throwing rice is so cliche. Think of original send-offs from your wedding guests. Many bridal couples have replaced rice with bubbles. What if you made your departure like a New Year’s Eve countdown? Give all your guests noisemakers like kazoos, tambourines, ratchets, horns, bells, and whatever else that will enthuse guests participating in your goodbyes.
Most bridal couples plan their reception to end on the last dance song. Much time is put into selecting the perfect song. However, a great way to inspire a Wow wedding moment is to have a final toast to thank everyone attending your wedding. You could do a round of jello shots (virgin shots for little ones) and invite everyone to the dance floor for a final toast.
Not sure who will start by saying their wedding vows first? Leave it to chance! It will add a bit of levity to the event and will also help calm everyone’s nerves at the alter. A great way to incorporate chance into selecting first choice includes drawing from a deck of cards, pulling a turkey bone, and flipping a coin.
The focus is always on the bride and groom during the wedding ceremony, as it should be. However, you can Wow guests during the ceremony by getting them involved in rituals too. Some suggestions include having them read a poem or Bible passage that is printed on their programs, have guests sing along with a well known song being played during the lighting of the unity candle, and also invite everyone to pull out their cameras for a planned photo moment before announcing the NEW Mr. and Mrs.
Your guests sitting in the back always have a hard time seeing and hearing. Wedding ceremony location permitting, surround chairs around the altar so that everyone has an equal chance of seeing and hearing vows being said the seeing the first kiss.
One way to always create an unexpected Wow factor at weddings is to incorporate some sort of home furniture into the wedding or reception. Don’t have an alter? What about your kitchen table in smallest configuration? A bar at the reception can be fulfilled with the hutch in your kitchen. If you are having a cocktail hour, bring in your living room furniture for guests to relax and enjoy chatting it up with family they have not seen for years. If you don’t feel comfortable bringing your prized possessions, you can always rent or purchase from local yard sales and swap meet.
You’ve spent your retirement fund and put a lien against your house to put together the most perfect wedding you can, only to have the reception flop and everyone leave early. Why did they leave? You hired the wrong band for your reception. There are major mistakes that some brides and grooms make when hiring a wedding band; make sure you don’t fall into these mistakes.
Hiring a Wedding Band
Don’t book a band that only plays your favorite style of music.
Many brides and grooms want to hire a band that plays their favorite genre of music, be it blues, rock, salsa or any other single genre. One genre of music is not enough variety to keep the night interesting for a four hour wedding reception which is usually how long the average reception lasts. The crowd is going to get really sick of just blues, salsa or any single genre by the time the fourth hour arrives if they are even still there. The perfect band for a wedding reception should have a variety of music that keeps the night fresh with a mix of old and new dance music as well as fast and slow tunes. The band should also have a nice mellow dinner set to play while everyone is eating and it should be at a low volume so guests can still converse comfortably while they are eating.
Make certain the band is not overbearingly loud.
Next, the band you hire should have either an electronic drum kit or have a very light hitting drummer. Electronic drums are very quiet and sound amazing at any volume level and a light hitting drummer won’t be overbearingly loud and can be easily mixed to sound good at any volume by the sound engineer. The reason this is important is that without either of these things the drummer will be extremely loud, and when that happens the rest of the band has to be extremely loud to be heard over the din of the drums and the entire band becomes so loud that your older guests will be exiting in droves with your younger guests leaving shortly after. When the band gets this loud, it is not possible to play a dinner set without being too loud for the guests to converse comfortably resulting in complaints from all guests constantly throughout dinner.
Do your homework and check the band’s credentials.
Lastly, check some references on the band you hire. Are they the band that got drunk and fell off the stage at their last wedding or were they a no show at the last reception? One way to find out just how reputable they are is to ask for their list of booked dates and see where they are booked. If they have lots of weddings on their calendar, they have most likely done a great job at their previous receptions and have gotten more receptions through word of mouth. If they have few bookings at all, beware! Unless they are a brand new band, they are probably not booked for a reason. You can also look for reviews online on wedding websites from brides that actually had them at their wedding reception. Above all, go and see them live in a wedding setting. Most hotel ballrooms are connected to foyers where you can view the band performing at a wedding reception without actually entering the reception and feeling like the wedding crashers.
So to recap, make sure the band you hire plays a good variety for all the different age groups present at your reception, can perform at a comfortable level without driving your guests away and is a reputable band that will show up on time and do a great job on the most important day of your life.
Music is a universal and romantic language. It can set the mood and can significantly turn your wedding into a different level. It is very important to choose the right set of musicians. Here are the steps to make sure you get the best band on your most important day.
Choose a Wedding Band
Make a list of tunes that you want played on your wedding day
Making a list means that you should know what songs you would like to walk down the aisle to, what you want to play before the ceremony, during dinner or on your first dance. You should know the parts of the wedding you want to incorporate music in and the songs you want played. This will guide you in determining the music genre that you want and know if your wedding band is able to play them all.
Make a list of musicians
It is important to make a list of wedding bands in your area or those who can be available to play in your area. Don’t settle for one band right away. Creating a shortlist of wedding bands will help you choose the best one as well as have a suitable back up should your first choice be unavailable on the day of your wedding.
Ask to hear them play
Ask for your prospective wedding bands for their gig schedules. This will give you an idea of their musical abilities and if their genre is applicable to the wedding and reception that you have in mind. Planning a wedding can be a very busy time. If you will not find any available night to see your shortlisted bands play, you can also opt to ask for their CD or a link to an online video of their performance.
Your wedding entertainment should be the least of your worries on your wedding day. Make sure to read reviews online for your wedding band. If a wedding band is recommended to you by a friend always ask if they are skilled, reliable and reasonably priced.
Discuss the price
Price is one of the most important considerations in choosing your wedding band. Discuss fees and other cost with your band. Ask your band if they are bringing their own equipment or if you need to cover rent costs for them. Set an amount that you can spend for your wedding band. Make sure that the amount you set will not compromise other elements of your wedding.
Make the choice
Once you have found the available wedding band whose musical abilities satisfy your expectations and is within your price range, make sure to book them and keep in touch. When dealing with professional musicians, know that their musical opinions are very valuable. Make sure to ask them for their ideas on the songs that you will use for the ceremony and reception.
Choosing the best band can be a lot of work yet you will find that it is all worth it at the end. Once you have made the choice of wedding band, the only step you need to take is to have fun and dance the night away.

The day is finally here. The day you have been dreaming of since your were little. The day you have planned for the past 12 months. With all stress, with all the pains, the day is finally here. Your WEDDING DAY. First thing you should do is relax and enjoy the day.
The wedding ceremony is beautiful and very heartfelt. It transpires without any hitches. The bridal couple enters the reception hall to a standing ovation. Then, everyone eats and the formal dances are complete. FINALLY, the part-e begins. Thirty minutes transpire and no one is dancing. This is not the reception party that you had envisioned. You pictured everyone dancing the night away. However, no one is dancing. What can you do to get people on the dance floor to get the party started? We offer the following recommendations to get the party started.
No One Is Dancing At Your Wedding
What guests are the most likely to dance? Yes, it’s the young adults. Therefore, play current music hits that are to on the charts now including Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Black Eyed Peas, Rihanna, etc. The younger crowd could get the party started.
Men typically will not get up to the dance floor to many high tempo songs. Think about playing a couple slow songs consecutively to get couples to the dance floor. Play well known songs by every age group such as Unchained Melody by the Righteous Brothers and What a Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong.
Play an anthem song that everyone knows that they can sing along to. Rock – Don’t Stop Believin’ by Journey, R&B – Shout! by the Isley Brothers, Country – Friends In Low Places by Garth Brooks, Classic Rock – We are the Champions by Queen and much more. Know your crowd and the type of music that get’s them excited.
Talk to the bride and groom beforehand and get an idea of their favorite music style. Find out if they like group dances and which ones suit their fancy. You can play a group dance but it must be headlines by the bride and groom leading the way. Such dances include he conga, the train, the electric slide, the macarena and so on. Reminder – keep the bride and groom in the forefront so that everyone joins in.
Finally, plan a group dance to get everyone on the dance floor. This way it will be hard for them to leave! One such planned dance is to invite all married couples to the dance floor. Then, start removing married couples from newest to oldest until the longest married couple is remaining. The, give a bride’s bouquet to them as a gift from the bride and groom.
Do you have any further suggestions to fill the dance floor when empty? Please comment in! Lastly, stay away from our list of songs not to play at weddings.
Music is one of the things in your wedding, which forms the part of your persona and helps you to set the mood of your wedding party. Choosing music for your wedding can be one of the most enjoyable tasks of your wedding planning. It can also be a good option when you want to take a break from the busy and hectic preparations of your wedding. Some couples have an impression that music is not necessary in the wedding or they don’t find the task very important and leave it completely to the DJ. However,this should not be the case, as music helps to add an essence of entertainment and fun to the enjoyable and auspicious occasion like your wedding. Without music your wedding can turn out to be quite a dull affair with a feeling of something missing from it. Moreover, it is always special to dedicate songs to your loved ones.
Music in Your Wedding
Since music played in the wedding can be heard by everyone and is crucial for setting up the right mood of the wedding party, it should be selected with utmost caution. For selecting the right kind of music for your wedding there are a few tips to remember.
Firstly it is essential to remember that music should not cater to only a single age group. This is because in every wedding there are people who belong to different age groups starting from children, teenagers, youth, to the elders. Thus, if music is of the choice of only one age group then the others will tend to get bored and sometimes even frustrated.
Second most important thing to remember while choosing your wedding playlist is that it should not contain any songs that may sound awkward or annoying when played aloud in an audience. There are many songs in your I-pod that you may personally like but they may not be very decent to be played when you are being accompanied by your mother and grandmother.
Another thing that should be considered while selecting the songs for your wedding is that they should not all be dance numbers as a wedding should not have a complete dance party feel to it.
Next point to remember is selecting the right DJ or band. Make sure whatever you hire for the music requirements of your wedding, be it a band or a DJ, you explain your music specifications as well as any restrictions very clear to them. A DJ can be hired when your wedding is more of a fun affair and a band could be a good option when you want to give an old school feel to your wedding.
Also, make sure that the playlist does not have too much variety in tempo and feel of music as constant switch of music from rock, to waltz, old school, or romantic can many a times become frustrating for the audience.
Apart from the above tips, never forget to add your personal touch to your wedding playlist as music is the best way to add the essence of your personality to the wedding and convey your feelings for your partner and loved ones through music.

Songs add spirit to an occasion. However, to make that happen, you need to choose the right songs. An appropriately selected song, with meaningful lyrics and melodious tune, would help set the situation. It is always better to devote some time selecting the songs you would like to play in your wedding. With so many options, your choice is going to be difficult but here are some tips that should help you in making the right choice:
Choose Your Wedding Songs
Make It Personal
The wedding song should be absolutely personal for the bride and groom. The song should not be chosen just to please the guests but to make it memorable for the wedding couple. The first dance of the newlyweds is special to both the bride and groom. A song that is liked by both, or somehow reflects their feelings, would be appropriate.
Borrow From Yesteryear Songs
Popular yesteryear songs, if selected precisely, can serve the purpose. You could always select popular songs of today but they may be the favorite for many other wedding couples of today also. So if you want to be different from others, you can move a few weeks or months back. There could be several other songs out there that would fit the occasion.
Ask DJ to Suggest
If you have no clue which song to play, ask the reception band or DJ to give you some suggestions. Playing music is their job and they can offer suggestions based on the melody and lyric quality of each song. Of course it is your prerogative to select the song. You should select the song which is you think fits the bill perfectly.
Separate songs can be chosen for different activities during the wedding. You could choose songs for the entrance of the bride, cocktail time, dinnertime, cake cutting and parents’ dance. An appropriately chosen song for every activity would add to the mood. However, play your theme song on your first dance at the reception.
Play Tribute Songs
You can also choose to play tribute songs for your elders, expressing your affection and gratitude for them. Your parents would be pleasantly surprised to hear it. You could play your parents’ favorite songs from their own weddings. In addition, you could request your parents to dance together. This would recreate feelings from their own weddings. It would be sweet to recognize their past experiences.
Variations would Do
There could be a song that you like but think that the situation would not be appropriate for the old beat. You could ask your band to play the song in different beat. You could tell the band to play an originally slow song fast or you could ask them to play a fast song slower. It is your function and the decision lies with you. It is up to you what kind of music you want.
Check the Lyrics
Go through the song lyrics before you decide upon a song. Some songs have good tunes but lyrics might send out a negative message like frustration and sadness. Some lyrics could have sexual undertone. A song should be judged not only by its melodious merit but also by its lyrics. So check out if the lyrics are appropriate for the occasion.
Check the Band
Check about the past performances of the band you intend to hire. Would you honestly want to hire a band that has no past record? You should also meet the artist who is supposed to perform on the occasion. It is recommended that you should straightly ask him how many functions he has performed in. Of course you would not want a novice for your wedding.
To plan your wedding occasion, you could visit a wedding planner. On the Internet, you would find links to other wedding vendors extending out a helping hand for all brides-to-be.
