Your wedding day is not going to be complete without the right music in the background. From your bridal march to your first dance as a couple and of course, you also need to take care of a playlist for your reception. Whether you like or not, this must be done properly. For the playlist, it has to jive with you and your partner’s personality and love story. But there are also songs that seem to be a staple in almost every wedding. In case you don’t know them, here they are:
For Once In My Life by Stevie Wonder
The Way You Look Tonight by Michael Bublè
Have I Told You Lately That I Love You by Rod Stewart
At Last by Etta James
These songs are often used, especially if the couple loves the classics. But since it is 2015 or as we would love to call it as the EDM generation because a lot of people are in with electronic dance music, you could also incorporate this genre to your wedding playlist. Using EDM is mostly perfect for the reception. But then of course, it is up to you if you want the music of Diplo or Zedd, as part of your entourage march. If you take a look at some of the modern day weddings on YouTube, you would be shocked on how some couple pulled it off and still made it to look so romantic and appropriate for the event.
For the reception, most people are torn between hiring a live band with a traditional wedding singer and just hiring a DJ. If you have an extra budget to spend for the music of your wedding, then we suggest that you hire both. If you want to save on this department, then it is just best to hire a DJ. Why? Because you would only really need to pay for one person. Unless you get DJ Atrak, Deadmau5 or Martin Garix, then that would be of a different price. But if you will just get someone who is not exactly famous, but who is good enough to know what he is doing and has actual skills in this department, then that alone will work. It’s best to do that than hire another sound technician and their crew just to have songs played right on your iTunes. Seriously, just get a DJ because it will be worth it.
Going for a band is not that bad as well. This is ideal for traditional weddings. Hiring a wedding singer and a band could just be a little bit expensive now, but if you don’t mind spending for it, then we say it’s okay. This is a part of your wedding that can’t be taken for granted. It will relive memories in the years to come. And one day, when you and your partner get into a fight, you could always remember the song that played when you had your first dance as a couple. The next thing you know, the fight is over.
