Creating the perfect playlist to accompany one of the biggest days of your life is no small feat. There are many things to consider before you even begin to create your ideal list of wedding tunes. You’ve got to find songs that are inspiring to you, songs that you and your fiancee will like, and you’ve got to make it all sound at least somewhat cohesive. If you know there are kids coming, it’s also probably a good idea to make your music age-appropriate. But don’t stress out! Here are a few things to keep in mind when you’re choosing what to jam to on your big day in Evergreen, CO.
DJ or Band?
First, you have to decide who will be controlling the music. Bands like string quartets, jazz troupes, and even solo players are typically used for ceremonies. Couples who prefer live music may hire a cover band to bring some excitement to the reception. DJs are typically saved for the reception part of the night, but it isn’t unheard of to see one working a ceremony. Though a live band may be a great change of pace, a DJ will most definitely have a better selection of music for you and your guests to request. Don’t be afraid to use both for different times during your wedding. If you decide to have a band play at your reception, don’t forget to rent a stage for them to play on!
Incorporate Your Wedding Style
Not all of your music has to match your style or theme. But keeping the style of your wedding in mind is a great way to keep your music choices somewhat cohesive. This is an especially important thing to consider when it comes to selecting big songs for your first dance, and dances with your parents. A theme-specific song during your walk down the aisle can also add a little nod to what your guests will come to expect later on in the evening.
