Everyone has different tastes in music and when it comes to wedding music, again the tastes may vary. While some people may prefer to have romantic songs being played at their wedding reception, others may want party songs to pump up the mood. However, when it comes to choosing reception music, besides the personal tastes and preference in music, your budget for the party and the wedding venue also play an important part in the selection of music. There are some specific points which one should always keep in mind, when preparing the playlist for the wedding reception music.
Select the DJ or Band Carefully
If you want good music to play on your reception, you need to make sure that you hire a good band or DJ to play on the final day. There are many musicians available who are ready to play in weddings, but not all of them are good or play music which is as per your taste. Therefore, you must always insist on listening in on the music of the band or the Dj before making the decision about hiring them or not.
Check Out the Space Available At the Venue
The choices of songs that are played at any wedding depend greatly on the venue. If you want loud and rock style of music, you will need a big open space for the space. If the same music is played in a closed hall, it can become too loud and distasteful. Therefore, before decide on your wedding music, check out the venue and ensure that it is fine for your style of music.
Choose Special Songs
Usually the Dj or the band which has been hired to play at the wedding reception have their own list of wedding songs which they would be playing, but you can always give them a list of special songs, which you may want to be played at specific parts of the reception, you can also use these songs for changing the mood of the party as per your wishes.
Booking the Band at The last Minute
It is important that you do not leave the job of hiring the band for the last minute. There is a possibility that by the time you finally decide to book the band, all good bands may already be booked, and you would have no other option but to compromise on the music that will be played at your wedding reception.
Ignore Noise Restrictions
One big mistake that many people make is that they do not take into account the legal noise restrictions which are imposed by the governments. Violation of these restrictions can result in the cops barging in the venue and forcing your party to shut down. You do not want such a scene to be created at your wedding party and so make sure you follow all the prescribed rules.
Restrict Your Dj
Many people feel that they have an exceptional taste in music and therefore, they give a set playlist of songs to the Dj and ask him or her to pay only those songs. Never do this. Trust your Dj and allow him or her, the freedom to change the music as per the mood of the party.
