Picking genres and songs
Knowing the types of people who will be attending your wedding, how the music will be played and the impact you want it to have, can help you think about the music genres, you, your DJ or live band, should play. From modern pop to dance or R&B, to older sounds like motown and rock and roll, there are so many genres you could focus on or include.
Younger attendees might like to hear some of the latest tracks from popular or current artists, for instance, while older guests might like throwbacks to the 80s or earlier. Alternatively, while it will be difficult to appeal to everyone’s tastes, a mixture of songs can often be enjoyed by everyone. Especially if they’re tracks some people haven’t heard in a while, and they’re more relaxed after a couple of drinks from the bar. You should also think about things like a song that will make a good dance with a parent or close family member or friend, which they will be more than happy to dance with you to.
