Music

Reception

 
Short List of Dinner Songs...

Remember the reception should be a celebration, so whatever music you choose should celebrate your new family, love and friendship.  Like the ceremony, you want to choose music you enjoy.  Make sure that if you use a DJ, you don't give him free reign to choose.  Ask to see a song list and pick the songs you like and take out the songs that won't fit with your style.

If you are not using a DJ, compile a couple of CD's of songs you and your spouse like and have a friend play them back to back so there is always music in the background.

Don't forget that if you want people to dance, pick songs that won't be too intimidating at first!
