Running The Perfect Wedding Discos: Why The Right Music Matters

When people look back on great weddings, they often remember them through their senses. Whether it’s from the fresh smell of the wedding cake or the first sight of the bride’s dress, it is our individual senses that help us remember these special events for the rest of our lives. With regards to weddings, perhaps the most important sense is hearing – in this case, the memory of a particular song or album that was played during your special event.

The song that you will remember for the rest of your life

Music has a powerful way of reigniting memories and bringing people back to various experiences in their past. When you listen to a song that was played during your wedding dance, you are instantly brought right back in time to the moment itself.  That’s why it is particularly important to choose the right wedding music beforehand. You need to ‘create’ the best memories for the future.

Get people dancing – unite your family and friends with music

Music can unite people and bring everyone to the dance floor – even people who would normally cringe at the idea of dancing in public. While champagne can certainly help to relax people and reduce their self-consciousness, the right music is also another very important factor that will help shape the mood of your wedding reception.
There are thousands of songs – from Abba’s timeless 1970s hit ‘Dancing Queen’ – or the romantic 1990s love ballad Whitney Houston’s ‘I Will Always Love You’ – that can help to liven the mood of a busy wedding reception. The most effective songs are the most recognisable ones – the songs that encourage people to get involved on the dance floor as opposed to retreating into the background.

Connect different generations with variety

Weddings can include people of all ages, from newborn babies to great grandparents. Consider incorporating different time periods into your playlist – for example, the 1960s to the present day – to make sure that everyone in the room can enjoy music that is meaningful to them and helps them to connect with their own memories.
Wedding planners need to be fully aware of their audience and what their taste of music is, even if it varies considerably. For example, a husband and a wife who come from different cultures and countries may not necessarily have the same tastes in music, which is why it is important to balance the genre and era to ensure that the music caters to their individual preferences.

A busy dance floor is the hallmark of a great wedding

A busy, crowded dance floor where everyone is fully engaged and taking part is the ultimate reward of a well-structured, carefully planned wedding. However, the wrong music can ruin a wedding reception and destroy the mood of the event, which is why it is always a good idea to make up a list of ‘do not play’ songs well in advance. Alternatively, arrange a vote with your guests and family and see which songs are in demand and which ones should definitely be avoided.
