6 Smart Ways to Get Your Wedding Playlist Done

Creating a wedding playlist can be a fun and exciting task, but keep a few things in mind to ensure that you have a balanced and cohesive selection of music.

List your favorite songs

Start by making a list of your all-time favorite songs and songs that have special meaning to you. This will give you a good start to narrow down your choices.

Theme and Atmosphere

The music you choose for your wedding should match the overall theme and feel of your celebration. 

For Example

- Formal, black-tie wedding:    classical, jazz, classic love songs - Outdoor wedding: folk, country - Beachside wedding: reggae, steel    drum, island-inspired genres - Bollywood hits for a Bollywood-    themed wedding. - Punjabi Bhangra songs for a    Punjabi wedding

Take into account the musical tastes of you and your partner: Be sure to discuss your favorite songs and genres with your partner and try to find a balance between your styles.

You might want to include some of your favorite love songs or songs that have special meaning to you as a couple.

Keep your guests in mind

Consider the musical tastes of your guests. Try to include a mix of songs that will appeal to a wide range of ages and tastes.

You might want to include some classic wedding hits, as well as more modern or unconventional songs.

Plan for different parts of the event

such as the ceremony, cocktail hour, reception, and after-party. Choose music that fits the mood and tone of each part of the celebration.

For example, you might want to have more upbeat and energetic music for the reception, while choosing softer, more romantic songs for the ceremony.

Create a list of songs that you want to be played during specific parts of the event, such as the first dance or the bouquet toss.

Make a list of songs that you definitely do not want to hear at your wedding. This will help your DJ understand your preferences and ensure that your playlist is exactly what you want.
