2018 Wedding Music Trends to Consider

Have you thought about the music that will set the tone for your wedding memories?

Here at Kentucky Pro DJ, we know how powerful music can be for such an important event! That’s why we want to share some basic tips for planning your own wedding reception music. If you are feeling a little lost, or just need that helpful push in the right direction, feel free to continue reading:

  • During Your Cuisine. There should never be a silent moment during your reception, especially when all of your guests are sitting at a table enjoying their meal. You can feature festive, yet slower music during this time to keep the ambiance uplifted and the chewing sounds to an absolute minimum.
  • Your Special Events. For events during your reception, such as your cake cutting ceremony, bouquet toss, and garter toss, it’s important to complement the moments. Consider music that speaks to what is going on, or that takes a fun play on words, to enhance each event.
  • Sharing the Last Dance. You can end your night with a dance! You and your partner can signal the end of the celebration by sharing a dance and encouraging your guests to get out on the dance floor for their own last dance. You should end things on a positive note with a fun song, such as I’ve Had the Time of My Life by Bill Medley & Jennifer Warnes.
