Other things to consider when organizing your wedding playlist

Hiring a professional wedding planner and DJ can help reduce the stress of picking songs for your wedding playlist, but for those who prefer that more “personalized” touch, choosing your own music is a must.

  • Practice your music’s timing. Save yourself from stress as you practice your timing and pace as the music is played for the bridal march. At the reception, a good mix of music is necessary to get your guests to hit the dance floor.
  • Decide whether you want to hire a live band or DJ. Coordinate with your wedding planner and make sure you’ve agreed on how many hours you’re booking the band or DJ for to avoid extra fees — look for wedding packages to save.
  • Consider the entire ceremony and divide it into sections. Each section will require a particular wedding song that would fit for that part.
  • Keep a running list of what you want and don’t want to be played. Consider both your personalities and recall events that highlight milestones in your relationship, as this should be the basis of choosing songs. There are songs that may remind you of hard times or just don’t suit you as a couple, so it’s best to avoid these ones.
