3 of The Most Important Wedding Entertainment Tips

All brides and grooms want their wedding days to be really unforgettable. Obviously, there are a lot of details that go into a successful wedding. From the colors you choose for the décor to the wedding menu itself, and from your dress to the flowers on the table, everything will make a difference.

But nothing is quite as important as your wedding entertainment.

What are some of the crucial tips all brides and grooms in New York should know about wedding entertainment? We have gathered them for you right below – so read on and find out more.

  • Know your audience. You may not know what music each guest loves to listen to – but it’s fair to make some assumptions. For instance, it’s likely that your friends will be fine with Top 40 songs and whatever kind of music you listen to. However, your parents will probably want to dance on something they can recognize too – so you will have to include a couple of songs from different decades too.
  • Everything for everyone. Sure, you’d like everyone to spend all their time on the dance floor, but that rarely happens. So why not provide non-dancers with some kind of entertainment too? A special show, stand up comedy, juggling, board games – the list is literally endless. Even a simple lounge area will help guests catch up with each other, say jokes, and create amazing memories!
  • Children included. It’s perfectly fine not to want to invite children at your wedding – but if you do, treat them like any other guest and provide them with some kind of entertainment too. Some fun games for children their age, a kids’ entertainer, fun little tasks (like taking pictures with a single use camera) – these things keep the children happy and out of trouble (which consequently makes their parents happy too).
  • Break the rhythm. Don’t be afraid to experiment with your special wedding songs. You don’t HAVE TO choose a smooth song for the First Dance, same as you don’t HAVE TO pick a very classical tune for your wedding processional. This is your wedding, so you make your own rules when it comes to these personal touches.

Planning the Rehearsal Dinner? Don’t Forget about the Music!

Your rehearsal dinner may not be as big or as fancy as the wedding itself, but that doesn’t mean it’s not important.

On the contrary. Planning a great rehearsal dinner is very important if you want to make sure you set the right tone for the Big Day (and, of course, if you want to make sure everything will go smoothly on the wedding day).

Secondly, it’s absolutely perfect if you’re having a Saturday wedding (like most couples do), because that means your rehearsal dinner will take place on… Friday. And yes, you’ll be in love!
  • Dave Brubeck, Bossa Nova U.S.A. Looking for a jazzy tune to lift up the spirits and make people chattier and friendlier with each other? This song is really great for you, then!

These Ceremony Processional Songs Are VERY Popular!

All brides want their wedding ceremonies to be absolutely fantastic, dreamy, romantic, and unforgettable – and given the uniqueness of this moment in one’s life, that’s perfectly understandable.

The song you choose for the background of your New York wedding ceremony processional is very important – but what are some of the most popular options out there? We’ve gathered them right below – so read on if you’re looking for some inspiration.

  • Pachabel, Canon in D. Aside from the classic “Here Comes the Bride”, this is one of the most popular songs to play on the wedding processional. Soft, romantic, beautiful, this classical tune will accompany you down the aisle, making you feel timelessly beautiful and eternally important in your loved one’s life (which is true!).
  • Bright Eyes, First Day of My Life. Such a sweet song, for a sweet, sweet moment of your life!

Amazing 80s Songs Everyone Will Love at Your Wedding

80's Music

Every musical decade has its own charm – but it seems that none has songs that are more popular for dancing than the magical 80s. The high-energy, the high hopes, the vibes of the music created in this decade – there’s nothing about the 80s that don’t recommend them for a wedding. Even more, it’s just the kind of music that can connect emotionally with a wide range of guests – from your parents and their friends to yourselves, if you were brought up in this decade.

What are some of the most popularly requested 80s tunes for a New York wedding? We have some tips for you – read on and find out more:

  • Michael Jackson, Thriller. You could never create a top of the most popular songs born in the 80s and omit MJ. As the quintessential 80s and 90s artist, he marked the world of music like nobody else did it before – and for that, his music lives on. “Thriller” is just one of his highly requested songs – and it’s just perfect for a quirky couple’s wedding, especially if you want guests to join in on an impromptu group dance. We bet everyone will have tons of fun on this song!
  • Wham!, Wake Me Up before You Go-Go. It might not be the most wedding-appropriate song, but then again, there are a lot of songs that have entered the “wedding folklore” and are much worse than this (“Macarena” is one of the most notorious ones). This is, however, a high-energy song everyone will sing the lyrics to – so it’s great for an ice-breaker at your wedding.
  • Dead or Alive, You Spin Me Round (Like a Record). You may have even forgotten about this song if you’re not hung up on retro music playlists. But the minute you will hear it, you will want to dance – and that is precisely what makes it such an excellent addition to your wedding music playlist.
  • The Cure, Just Like Heaven. A really beautiful song with a very unique tune to it – one that’s just as quintessentially 80s as MJ, but at the other end of the pole. Excellent option for couples who really want to show off their uniqueness!

These Tips Will Actually Make All Guests Want to Dance

Wedding music mixer

As the hosts of your wedding in Buffalo, NY, you want to make sure everyone invited there actually has a lot of fun. Sure, the dress, and the decor, and the food, and the drinks – they will all make a huge difference for each guest invited at your wedding.

Yet, it is very often that the “pulse” of an event is given by the music playing on the background and whether or not guests are actually entertained (i.e. dancing).

How do you actually get guests off their chairs and attract them to the middle of the dance floor? We have some tips for you – read on and find out more.

  • Mix the genres. We know you might be a big country or rock or r’n’b fan, but focusing on the same genre can get boring over the course of a few hours – especially if your wedding guests are not exactly enjoying that particular type of music. Try to mix things up – it’s far more likely that you will satisfy the wide range of tastes your guests may have. Also, try to cover as many musical decades as possible – this way, everyone will be happy with the music, from your grandma to your teenage niece.
  • DO make a “DO NOT PLAY” list, but keep it short. If your DO NOT PLAY list is very long, it is more than likely that your DJ will end up with fewer choices – and thus, it is less likely that the music played at your wedding will be the kind everyone recognizes and wants to dance to. Of course, it’s perfectly normal to have a list of songs you just don’t want to hear at your wedding (and there’s a myriad of reasons for this too) – but try to be reasonable and realistic about this.
  • Hire the right person. You cannot even imagine how much it matters to hire the right DJ! Someone with experience and genuine talent for this will know how to set up the atmosphere, warm up your guests, and “lure” them to the dance floor without making it feel forced in any way.
