There are several reasons to have music throughout the entire wedding day. Here are a few examples of these crucial moments, getting ready with your bridal party! Having music playing in the background as you are getting ready sets the tone for the day and boosts the energy in the room! Music is a wonderful way to add emotion to any event like cake cutting, garter and bouquet toss, a cocktail hour! All of these examples are huge wedding moments during the day that should absolutely have background music. Here are the events described more in-depth.
It is crucial to have music during cocktail hour. This creates an added element of comfort and elegance for your guests. Typically the DJ will play instrumental versions of popular songs. This way you are still getting the elegant feel with a pop culture twist! Some guests may feel overwhelmed by big crowds, having background not only will ease their nerves but allow them to feel comforted if they want to sit and listen to music before socializing.
The biggest event during the night is the grand entrance. The grand entrance sets the tone for the rest of the evening. If you are walking into your party with an impeccable song that has your guests cheering, dancing, and on their feet, you did it right! Not only does it set the tone but it gives your guests something to look forward to after the dinner portion is over. It creates excitement and gives guests the energy to forge on with the evening. This is one event that you absolutely have to present music.
Cake cutting is one event during the reception that should have music. More often than not, we see the cake cutting right after the grand entrance. This allows the caterers to cut the cake with an ample amount of time. Since we are starting to see this more, it’s crucial to have a song that transitions nicely from the grand entrance into the cake cutting. That way it holds the attention of your guests and keeps the energy at an all-time high!
Garter Toss & Bouquet Toss
In some regards, having music for the garter and bouquet toss is a given. However, brides are given the unique opportunity to switch it up! Almost every wedding we hear ‘Single Ladies’ for the bouquet toss. There are so many women empowerment songs to do the bouquet toss too! The same goes for the garter toss. Finding new songs for these events is what makes weddings memorable. Choosing new songs will also inspire future couples to do the same.
