The reception is where the culmination of the wedding will be held. It is here where people will get to enjoy the celebration together with the newly married couple. For this matter, every detail of the celebration must provide satisfaction and contentment not only to the bride and groom but to all visitors and guests as well. At the reception, the elements that will make the celebration a success are comfortable venue, great foods, party floor, and, of course, music.
The wedding music plays a very important role both in the wedding ceremony and all throughout the culmination of the celebration. At the church, or at any place the wedding rite was held (garden, estate, etc.), a soft and mellow wedding music is normally the type of song that is played for the solemnity of the exchanging of the vows. People protect this solemnity by attending to the ceremony with everyone else in a silent mood.
In the reception, the couple can choose a varied type of music. Whether they would like it to be funky or jazzy, they could opt for their kind of wedding music. The visitors and the guests will have an influence to the choosing of the wedding reception music. They need to be entertained, together with the bride and groom, so they contribute to the factors when it comes to determining what type of music should be played in the entire celebration.
As mentioned earlier, the guests and visitors will have an influence in choosing the type of wedding music. But the primary factor that should be utilized in choosing the best wedding songs, are the bride and groom's personal consideration. While it will be great to have the guests and visitors duly entertained, the songs that are going to be aired in the entire course of the party will manifest the newly wed couple's personality, and their personal taste.
Another factor in choosing a wedding music for your party is the wedding theme. Of course, you don't want choosing wedding songs that are contradictive with the otherwise romantic and formal wedding motif and theme that will spoil the celebration. If you and your partner just don't care enough, then by all means, you can pick avant-garde type of music. But you must also consider other people especially your folks and olds.
If you can't handle the choosing of the wedding music, you can check with your chosen reception venue. Most of the time, they offer the service of providing the venue with music. But first, you must know what type of music they have for wedding parties. Usually they have a performing live band that render the service so you are going to enjoy the party with live music.
However, there are reception venues that have some restrictions in terms of playing live music. In this regard, it is important to contact them first and ask things regarding the matter. If they don't play the kind of music you and your partner want, you may have a negotiation with them to adjust the matter.
Other reception venues offer the same service but in different form. Instead of a live band, they employ a disc jockey to provide different kinds of songs. The advantage of this is that you will have the opportunity to choose songs from their playlist. But prior to the wedding party, make sure that you have met with DJ to ensure that the playlist contains your favorite songs along with others that will complete the wedding music list.
