How to Make Your Wedding Music Rock

wedding dancingYour wedding is one of the most important days of your life, and as such, you want everything, from the moment you wake up to the honeymoon, to be just right so you have great memories. Of course, the reception is included in this, and this means you’ll want to take care in choosing the music for your wedding reception.

Ensuring that you have great music for your wedding reception means more than just finding a guy who can play “The Chicken Dance” at some point during the evening. Choosing a good provider for the music at your wedding reception can set the tone for the whole evening and create more memories of your special day, whether good or bad. Knowing how to choose your wedding entertainment will increase your chance that those memories are good ones.

Make Sure There’s Music

A wide range of music in your provider’s collection means that requests at the reception can be handled. If there’s a particular song you want to hear while at your reception, make sure that the person providing the music at your wedding reception can play it.

And while you talk with your provider about the music, make sure that he has the sound system to play it. You don’t want to host your wedding at your local community center only to find that the most your music provider has brought is his stereo system from home.

Make Sure it Flows

Be sure to discuss with your provider beforehand how the music will fit in with the tone of your reception. If you intend for the happy couple’s special song to be played after the cutting of the cake, be sure to tell your music provider. It’ll seem awkward if the music at your wedding reception isn’t played at the appropriate times. Don’t hesitate to ask the person providing music at your wedding reception for advice on music to choose or timing for particular songs. If you’ve picked an experienced provider of wedding reception music, you’ll have a great source of advice about what has and hasn’t worked for other wedding receptions.

And on the subject of finding an experienced provider, be sure to obtain references and check up on them. You don’t want to find out on the day of your wedding that your DJ tends to hit the open bar more than he hits the record table. With a little care and some planning beforehand, though, you’ll have a selection of wonderful music along with your wonderful wedding.
