Wedding planning comes with a list of things you HAVE to do make your day perfect. Wedding music is one of those tasks, and for some an essential key to making your wedding after party, also known as the reception, an epic one for you and your guests.

Here's a quick list to consider when choosing music for your wedding.


Think About Your Budget

The budget for a wedding is always good to manage strictly because it can be very easy to overspend. And when it comes to the wedding music, you also have to think about how much you want to spend. Do you want a DJ, a full sound system, or just run your playlist from your mobile phone through the venue's speakers? The more elements you include, the more expensive the costs will become.


DJ or Wedding Band?

When it comes to the reception, the music matters because it decides how fast your guests will get up and dance. So, are you going to hire a DJ to play your favorite songs or would you prefer a wedding band? What if you want both? It's possible, and quite simple to find live entertainment where ever you are in the world. For example, in the Shropshire area of England, you can find performers on AliveNetwork.com.



Think About A Set List

No matter what you choose - a DJ or a band - you'll have to pick out the set list.  Which can be daunting to think about all of the songs you ever loved in your life. So, if you’re struggling for songs, then it might be a good idea to ask your wedding guests what they’d like to hear at the wedding. And you'll want to list at least 100 songs! It’s good to have too many tracks, rather than too few. But, if you are cutting costs and playing via a computer or mobile phone, make sure that you have enough hours worth of songs that will see you through from the start of the party to the very end. It will be fun to build the list with your partner so you can recall memorable times, like when you both met or at significant points in your relationship together.


Provide Food If They’re There All Day

I know you are already providing food for your wedding guests, but don't forget your live entertainment workers! If you have a wedding band or any type of music where the players are there for  five hours or more, it’s common etiquette that the host cater some food for the musicians. It’s a way of saying thank you and the last thing you want is to have them hanging in a corner awkwardly. Invite them to mingle when they’re not playing so that they don’t necessarily stick out.
