Your nuptial playlist

By the time you've decided between hiring a band and a DJ, you may have created your own playlist of must-hear music for them to play. You might want to take a step back at that point. With their own playlist, the DJ or band will require your trust so that they may play the tunes that will garner the most interest. However, you should let them know which songs in particular you really want to hear at the party and which ones you absolutely do not want to!

Tunes for the cocktail party

In contrast to the rest of the festivities, the visitors might prefer a string quartet, a solo guitarist or pianist, perhaps even a jazz band, or peppy tunes at this event. Include these to make your cocktail party joyous yet tasteful!

Dad and Daughter Dance

The father-daughter dance is just as special as the first dance for the pair. Make sure to select your dad's all-time favourite music, which will undoubtedly evoke warm memories.

Soulful tunes at the ceremony

Wedding first dance songs

You want everything to be flawless when the pair dances for the first time. Ensure that you both have good synchronization and that the song isn't too fast or sluggish for you two by practicing the steps to the songs. The pair will always treasure their exquisite first dance throughout their "happily ever after."

Ceremonial Music

Live music is ideal for special occasions like the first time a bride enters the mandap. Since the anxiety can still set in on the big day, even after the rehearsal, you and your bridesmaids may move more quickly toward the stage. If you have a song that has already been recorded, play it to make sure it fades out rather than comes to an abrupt close.
