3 Things to Keep in Mind When It Comes Time to Choose the Music for Your Wedding

There is no doubt that the music you choose for your wedding plays a huge role in the experience. Music often adds emotion and can thus affect the mood of your guests. Therefore, when it comes time for you and your fiancé to choose the music, it’s vital that you remember who is attending, and the type of impact the music will have. If you are in the process of picking music, here are a few other things to keep in mind:

The first-dance song should be a song you and your fiancé both like.

While most would think that choosing a first-dance song is easy, most couples have a difficult time choosing one. When picking a song, you should try to pick one that represents your relationship. But, if you and your fiancé simply cannot narrow it down to one, you can ask the DJ to create a mash-up of you and your fiancé’s preferred first-dance songs.


Just because you have friends that are in a band, and they offer to play for free, it doesn’t mean you have to oblige them.

We realize that it can be hard to say no to friends. Especially if they are in a band and are offering to play for free at your wedding. If you and your fiancé would rather have a DJ and not a live band, it’s important for you to let them know in the nicest way possible. Inevitably, it’s your wedding, and you can have it play out however you want.

If you hire a DJ, let him or her do what he or she does best—DJ!

Yes, it is you and your soon-to-be’s big day, and you both probably want most of the control over the music. However, if you’ve hired a DJ, you should also let him or her work. These days, most DJs will ask you to create a playlist, but that doesn’t mean he or she will follow it through to the end. Sometimes, the DJ will play other songs that will fit well with others you have chosen, and it’s best that you let your DJ do it. After all, he or she is the professional! If there are songs that you DO NOT want the DJ to play, make sure you provide them with a list of those as well!
