Dance Music for the Wedding Reception

The most enjoyable part of the wedding reception is the dance music. When choosing dance music for your wedding, you need to decide if you want the services of a DJ or a band for your wedding.

For a church wedding, you could sit with the minister to decide on the music for each of the four sections of the wedding ceremony: The Prelude, The Processional, The Signing of the Register and The Recessional.

When you choose music for your wedding, you could decide the choice of music depending on the guests for your wedding and the trend for music. One option is to have an interesting mix of romantic melodies and party numbers as dance music for your wedding.

First the bride and bridegroom traditionally take the dance floor to a waltz. Then they take turns as the bride groom dances with his mother-in-law and then with his mother. The bride dances with her father-in-law and then with her father. The best man dances with the chief bridesmaid. The other bridesmaids join hands with the ushers. They are soon followed by the other guests.

You could have a live band, which are associated and favored for the 'real music', alternating with a disc jockey as he plays dance music for your wedding. The live band could play slow music and set the tempo for the fast paced danceable tracks, by the DJ. Hiring a DJ is less expensive than a real live band of professionals.

Listen to the tracks of the DJ or assess the live band before giving them a 'Yes' to perform dance music at the wedding reception. Their systems and equipment should be compatible with the venue. You could give a list of tracks which would be desired to be played and also the sequential order if you prefer.

In case the musicians or the Djs have to do an 'encore' you want to check to see if there will be any additional charge.
