These Wedding Music Planning Tips Are Extremely Important

Your wedding music can make all the difference in the world. Even if the rest of your wedding is simple or modest, the wedding music you choose, as well as the food you serve can instantly pump up the mood and help guests have a genuinely good time.

How do you plan your wedding music? What are the essential tips to keep in mind?

We have gathered some of them for you – so keep reading and find out more.

  • Don’t go over your budget. Yes, music is the kind of wedding element you should definitely prioritize over other smaller elements (such as specific pieces of décor or even day of stationery). However, this doesn’t mean that you should go over your budget. As wedding DJs ourselves, we understand that, in the end, nothing is more important than starting your married life on the right foot and not having to carry debt with you for the years to come. So, yes, we totally believe budget is where it all starts.
  • Weed out the unclassy songs. This does not mean you cannot play modern or dance-worthy songs. On the contrary, you should definitely do that too! However, do make sure to listen closely to the songs you choose for the Big Day, so that you don’t leave anything that might offend anyone. It’s better to play it safe with these things.
  • Do you have any kind of specific musical tastes? For instance, if you like a special decade or a very specific genre (pop-rock-folk indie, for example), you want to make sure you bring that into your wedding day without making guests feel bored with it. The best way to deal with this is by dedicating a special section of your wedding to your favorite songs.
  • Want guests to leave your wedding feeling great and energized? Make sure your last songs are high-energy and happy. It’s the best way to help everyone end a great day on a high note – it will instantly put a smile on everyone’s faces and who knows, maybe the party will continue elsewhere with those who want to keep on having fun all night long.
