Don’t Be A Cookie-Cutter

Lastly, keep in mind that this is just a starting point for choosing wedding songs. Your wedding reception playlist should be a reflection of your unique tastes and preferences. Don’t be afraid to mix in some lesser-known hits or songs that are meaningful to you and your partner. After all, it’s your day, and your wedding reception playlist should reflect your unique love story.
