Tips for Wedding Reception Dance Music

  1. Create a playlist that appeals to all ages: When creating a playlist for your wedding reception dance, it's important to remember that you'll have guests of all ages attending your event. So, try to include a mix of oldies, current hits, and maybe even a few throwbacks to appeal to everyone.  Ask your DJ if they use Gigbuilder, a fantastic online planning tool offered free with their services.
  2. Plan for different moods: Your wedding reception dance will have different moods throughout the night, from upbeat and energetic to slow and romantic. Make sure your playlist reflects this by including a mix of fast and slow songs.
  3. Consider your venue: The venue you choose for your wedding reception can greatly affect the type of music you choose. For example, if you're having an outdoor reception, you'll want to choose music that is appropriate for the setting, such as upbeat, fun, and lively.
  4. Get your guests involved: Encourage your guests to request songs or even create a playlist with them. Not only will this get them more involved in the reception, but it will also ensure that the music played will be enjoyed by everyone.
  5. Hire a professional DJ: Do not attempt this yourself.  Search our website which contains listings from over 30,000 professional DJs Nationwide
  6. Don't be afraid to be creative: Your wedding reception is the perfect opportunity to let your creativity shine. Consider incorporating unconventional music genres or instruments to make your reception truly unique.
  7. Create a "Do Not Play" list: Along with creating a playlist, consider creating a "Do Not Play" list of songs or genres that you do not want to be played at your reception. 
  8. Remember the importance of the first dance: The first dance between the newlyweds is a special moment that should be memorable. Make sure to choose a song that is meaningful to the couple and that sets the tone for the rest of the reception.

Overall, the key to a successful wedding reception dance is to have a diverse playlist that appeals to all ages, music tastes, and to make sure that your guests are having a great time on the dance floor. With a little planning and creativity, you can create a memorable wedding reception that everyone will enjoy.
