GOTTA DANCEOne thing it reiterated for me is that music is a must for weddings. I would have to say I am bias because I am a music lover. So, if you plan your wedding with Perfection Squared, you are definitely going to have a wide choice of music options. I couldn’t imagine not using music as another way to express my love on my special day. Of course if you are just having a small intimate wedding with not much of a reception you may not need a dedicated source of music. Ultimately, in the end it is about your tastes, likes, dislikes and more important it is your choice. Yet, also remember that most guests love the part where they get to get out on the dance floor and have a ball. That is the time when you get to see your little 3-year-old niece bust out her new moves or have your grandmother prove to everyone that she still has it going on. There are some of your guests that have come from far away just to see you start your life with the person you love, so don't they deserve a little fun. Additionally, there may be people falling in love at that very moment at your wedding. Ironically, your music selections could be the soundtrack to their new romance. Mostly, after months of planning, a whole day of being on a schedule and an hour of sitting for photos, you finally get to let your hair down maybe even literally.
A question I get asked constantly is, “what music is appropriate for my wedding”. A lot of brides wonder if they should have a string quartet, guitarist, singer or piano player at their wedding. Then they wonder if they should have a band or DJ at the reception. The whole day is your day but your wedding is your moment. In that moment, I say you should choose what best express your vows, your love and your moment. My advice comes in when we are planning the reception. While the reception is also part of your big day, it is also to celebrate with your guests that took time to come out to celebrate your day. You want to share this time with them and so you want to take into account what they like as well. If you have a lively, love to dance kind of crowd that won’t be overwhelmed by the music of a DJ then go for it. Most experienced wedding DJs will add character, be interactive and create a very fun experience for your guests. If the demographic is right, I don’t think you can go wrong with a DJ. However, there are a lot of great bands out there as well that can provide a fabulous experience. In the end, just remember your guests and I am sure you will make the right decision.
THE FIRST TIMEYour first dance is the dance that will put the official mark of your new status as husband and wife. That means you will be choosing this song together. You may already have a song that marks a special time for you both when you were dating but if not, take time to analyze the lyrics because you want to make sure they are speaking directly to your relationship. You may also want to consider the length of the song. When you work with a DJ or band, they can adjust it so that your guests don’t feel as though the song is being extended for too long. Of course it is your wedding and if you want to play a song in its entirety, your guests will just have to understand.
