Tips for Planning your Wedding Reception Music in St. Louis


Planning for the biggest day of your life can be a bit overwhelming. Brides in 2020 are planning so much and one of the hardest decisions can be music. Whether you have already compiled a detailed playlist or would just rather trust the expertise of the DJ, we can help! I hope we can shed some light on the sometimes seemingly daunting task of figuring out. What wedding reception music do I want at my big day?

Tips for Planning your Wedding Reception Music in St. Louis

The biggest advice when deciding music is to break it down into a timeline. It’s so much easier to tackle when you think about what is happening chronologically. Take a deep breath, relax, and enjoy. Start with the ceremony, imagine all of your guests arriving before the wedding walking in and mingling with family they more than likely haven’t had the chance to see in a while. What would they like to hear that would really set the atmosphere?

Traditional orchestral music is always a classic hit, however, today brides are looking for a blend. I like to suggest to brides Vitamin String Quartet because they have beautifully done orchestral instrumentals of today’s pop songs. They are fun, catchy, classy, and really set the mood for the ceremony. Maybe that’s not your style maybe you’d like some soft country playing in the background. We are DJ’s can custom make your music to make your dreams come true.

Once the ceremony is over and cocktail hour begins a fun mix of big band music is always a hit. Frank Sinatra and Michael Buble’ are always good go-to tunes for light easy listening music to catch up on old times with a loved one. Cocktail playlists can be similar to Dinner music as well. The fun begins with the start of the reception. The best way to ensure a packed dance floor and get everyone out there is easy. Communicate with your DJ what genre of music everyone in the bridal party likes to dance to. What are some classic favs that get everyone on there feet singing along?

We believe a good DJ should be so much more than a playlist. They will be out there with your guests, reading the room taking song requests, and really keeping the energy up all night. We hold our DJ’s to the highest standards to ensure a seamless stream of upbeat and slow songs to optimize the fun to be had by everyone in attendance.
