How to Select the Best Wedding Dinner Songs
Looking to fill in the gap between the wedding ceremony and the much awaited dancing? A great selection of wedding dinner songs may be just the thing you need! How do you ensure that the bridal songs are just right for the occasion? We'll tell you...
1. Keep The Guests In Mind:
That's obvious, isn't it? If you have a mixed gathering (people belonging to different age groups), a mixed selection that is easy on the ears is your best bet! Variety is the key here. You can always have a Nat king Cole classy wedding dinner song between some Coldplay! There are no restrictions on this one; you can even go for your all time favorites. Just make sure they are light and blend into the surroundings. If you have a few feet tapping numbers in mind, keep them for the dancing later on in the evening.
2. It's All About Coordination:
If you have musicians playing at the wedding, they will provide the best selection of wedding dinner songs that help with the transition. If you aren't quite sure about what to play, leave the choices with the pros - us of course!
3. Make Your Choices Clear:
If you do have a particular preference, talk to the DJ or the musicians about it. Or even better, use OurBridalSongs.com to compile a PDF playlist (by clicking "Add to Shortlist" next to any song), the print or email to the DJ!
4. Go For A Balanced Feel:
Your wedding dinner songs need not make your guests feel sleepy! You can always have something soft but upbeat playing at dinner. Think about the ambience at a casual cocktails party; that is the tone you want to set!
5. You May Wish to Avoid Vocals:
Vocals tend to distract people and you don’t want all eyes focused on your musicians on YOUR big day! A great instrumental version is always preferable as your wedding dinner song!
