What Are Some Of The Current Wedding Music Trends?
Are you currently focusing on planning your wedding? Although you might have some details planned out already, there are a few things that you may not be so sure about, such as the music that you will have played by the DJ during the reception. You want to be able to listen to music that you like, but you would likely want to please others who will be at the reception too, such as your parents and your partner’s parents.
Instead of stressing out about which songs should be played and which ones should be avoided, consider checking out some of the latest music trends. The trends may give you a bit of inspiration for what you would like to do for your own wedding.
Many brides are choosing upbeats songs for the reception because they want to encourage their guests to dance and have a good time. While some slow song selections are still popular, especially during the first dance between the married couple and the father/daughter dance or mother/son dance, you should still consider having many fun songs played by your live acoustic wedding band.
If you are not sure which songs would be fun to listen and dance to, consider adding tracks by Taylor Swift and Katy Perry to your playlist. You may also want to add a few Michael Jackson songs. Even though those songs would be considered a bit old, it is a great way to mix things up and give everyone a chance to enjoy the music that is being played.
The dance-style songs are completely trendy. Want to get everyone, including your grandparents, on the dance floor? If so, consider choosing several fun selections, such as Single Ladies by Beyonce and Moves Like Jagger by Maroon 5. You can add in a few oldies by The Temptations and Diana Ross to mix up the different generations of music too.
Along with the fun music, softer selections are trendy for the first dance that you will have with your partner. You can select any song that you like. For example, the two of you may have a song that reminds you of one another. One of John Legend’s songs, “All of Me”, has become an extremely popular wedding song.
One of the best things you could possibly do when selecting your wedding music is to ask friends to list some of their favorite songs. If you have friends who have different preferences, you will be able to compose this huge list of songs that are sung by so many different musicians. You will end up with such a great variety of music to listen to at your wedding reception.
The most important thing about your reception is having a good time. And, if you want to be able to celebrate excitedly over your nuptials, you are going to want to have the best music played. Consider following some of the trends, but also make sure to choose plenty of songs that you would love to listen to throughout the entire day.
