You have chosen the music for your first dance and even practiced some moves but when it comes to a play list for the reception that can prove a little more tricky.

Trying to please everyone’s different and interesting tastes in music can be hard but it doesn’t have to be. Here at All Steps first dance we have come up with some ideas on how to choose the music and also a rough top 10 tracks to make sure the evening of your wedding is just as enjoyable as the ceremony.

Firstly, when sending out your invitations why not add in a line asking for help. Ask for your guests to list one or two songs they like the most and create a playlist around these. Of course. adding in some traditional wedding party songs into the mix. Check Spotify for wedding play lists and create your own from some tried and tested ones. If you are having a live band then check with them what kind of music they would suggest. It all depends on the theme of your wedding whether you are going a little rock and roll or more traditional. It is completely up to you and anything fun to get your guests up and moving will be a sure fire hit. 

Here are our top 10 list of songs for the ultimate reception party.

Consider who is attending, if you are having children at the wedding then why not add in some Disney songs or recent pop songs for them to enjoy at the beginning of the evening, before they get too tired to dance. Perhaps some older relatives who would love to hear a little 50’s or 60’s? What about a crazy uncle who loves Queen. Whatever your tastes, just try to cater for everyone. Do not forget to add in most importantly your favouite songs! A song from your teenage years, or a song from when you first met. Music is a very powerful thing and can bring such emotion into a room. It brings back memories or exciting happy times so draw in on those. Choose songs that will have everyone talking about your special day for years to come.
