Your wedding reception is a time where your guests can enjoy a delicious meal, view your gorgeous décor, and let loose out on the dance floor! Having fun should be the prominent feature, as you will want each guest to enjoy every minute of your big day.

How to Make Song Requests at Wedding Receptions

However, without the right entertainment, your guests may not be able to celebrate to the fullest.

Here at Bill Pence Music, we believe that music is what creates a fun and successful wedding reception! But, there are some genres that you should avoid presenting within yours. Would you like to learn what these genres are? If so, continue reading for some great insight:

  • Don’t Slow Down the Fun. Everyone enjoys dancing to a slow song, as it is a great way to connect with your partner and add some romance to such and intimate day. However, if you guests are lacking partners, it will cause the to evacuate the dance floor. In addition, slow melodies have the potential to put a damper on your celebratory atmosphere. So, present slow songs here and there, but overall keep your music upbeat.
  • Avoid Screaming. While some guests may enjoy loud screaming and words that can barely be understood, you can ensure that the majority of the other guests won’t appreciate it. Heavy metal is a genre all its own, and should be avoided on your wedding day. Not only is this genre presented as loud and obnoxious, but it is not ideal to dance to, unless you want your dance floor to become a mosh pit.
  • Keep the Music Appropriate. Rap and hip-hop songs should be chosen with caution, as some are not appropriate when it comes to the lyrics. With people of all ages attending your wedding, from children to grandparents, you will want to be mindful of the songs that you choose. Any tunes with cussing or negative lyrics would be best to avoid presenting.
