Just thought I would let you know that I was contacted by a couple last week solely based on my ad in you wedding magazine, and having gone out to see them they booked me to do their wedding photos.
If it hadn’t been for my ad in the magazine they wouldn’t have known I existed.
Music is often the key factor to getting your wedding guests to enjoy themselves and can make or break a fun atmosphere, getting them on the dance-floor and praising you for hosting such a fabulous wedding. So, no pressure then?
The right music will set the tone perfectly for your special day as well as get everyone from your grandma to your little cousins up dancing and feeling like they’re a part of the fun. This can often be a difficult task though as pleasing everybody’s tastes while choosing music you too will enjoy can be hard.
The music you choose for the ceremony is incredibly personal and will probably be the most emotional music of the day. Most people choose reflective songs for this part of the day and songs which have a special meaning to them, usually because of the words.
Kicking off the reception, the first dance is a hugely important moment. Therefore the music has to be right as it is bound to be a talking point and something your guests will take away from your day and remember for a very long time. Alive Network have some great wedding reception entertainment ideas as they are the leading online entertainment agency with live bands for hire throughout the UK.
Having a live band play your favourite song is a lovely way to begin your reception and is sure to have every guest with a tear in their eye!
Think about the age range of your guests and choose a few songs from the decades they grew up in to make sure everyone feels included and has something they can relate to. The best wedding bands and DJs will know a few fail-safe crowd pleasers that everybody loves so it really helps to have a professional who can is experienced in encouraging your guests to have a great time. Don’t forget to also include your own musical tastes though! It is your day after all and it is important that you add something that you will enjoy and which adds your own touch to the festivities.
Another good idea some people use is to ask guests to choose a few songs each which are then added to the set list to ensure everybody has at least one song they love played – and they can then enjoy listening out for it as well as guessing who chose which song.
