Selecting music is one of the most fun parts of planning a wedding but it can also be the trickiest. The music you choose sets the tone for the entire celebration so here are a few tips and tricks from us on how to go about it.

For the reception, we always recommend you hire a DJ. They’re fun and a versatile choice for the party. You could always request the DJ to switch from bhangra to some old school hip-hop at the drop of a beat, quite unlike with a band.

At the ceremony it always good to invite a solo musician or even a string quartet. It adds a certain amount of flair and class to the ceremony. Get them to play a few classical pieces and you’ll have your guests tearing up at just the right moment. (Tears of joy of course)

Make a list of songs. Be sure to include songs that hold a special place in your heart as a couple. The first song you ever danced to, together. The song that was playing when he asked you to marry him. You get our drift? Also make sure there are a few special father daughter songs and mother son songs for those precious moments on the dance floor, apt for candid wedding photographs.
