As an Albuquerque wedding DJ, I have had the pleasure of creating unique and personalized music experiences for countless couples on their special day. It is a huge honor to be a part of such an important event and I take great pride in making sure each wedding is one-of-a-kind. One great way I have seen to truly create a unique wedding experience is with the personalization of your music selection. When couples begin planning their wedding, one of the first things they should think about is the music. After all, music sets the tone for the entire event and can make or break the atmosphere. In this blog I will give you a few tips on what to think about when creating a playlist, how to spread out your playlist and a fun way to help you narrow down your music selections.
What to think about when choosing songs
One of the best ways to personalize your wedding music is to choose a mix of songs that are both meaningful and familiar to you and your guests. This can include songs that are about love and happiness or songs with positive and good energy. I always recommend going with popular artists that are both new and old to help everyone enjoy the music. By incorporating these styles of songs into your playlist, you can make your wedding day extra unique and meaningful.
Choose Specific Music For Specific Events
Another way to personalize your wedding music is to choose a genre or theme for specific moments throughout the wedding day. For example, if you and your partner are both huge jazz fans, you can choose to have a jazz-themed cocktail hour. Then if you and your partner are both R&B and country music fans, you can choose to have a mix of those genres during your dinner. By spreading out the playlist and style of music you are able to create unique environments and really a great playlist for your night.
Make a Playlist While You Do Activities
Now when creating these playlists it can be overwhelming and sometimes hard to narrow down your list. A great way to “dig through your playlists” is to listen to music while you are doing activities like cleaning, cooking or working out. Then create a playlist that has your “wedding jams” on it. While you are listening to music casually a song will come up on shuffle and you will think “Oh this would be perfect for the wedding”! You then put that song in the playlist and keep doing that over and over. This is a lot easier because you can throw it in as you listen instead of sitting down and just going through your playlists trying to find the right song.
Personalizing your wedding music is a great way to make your special day truly unique and memorable and is an important aspect of the event planning process. It’s always important to keep your guests in mind but always remember that at the end of the day this is your wedding day so try to keep your interests first and your guests second. Not only does it allow you to have a soundtrack that reflects your personality and taste, but it also helps set the mood and atmosphere for your special day. By carefully curating a playlist that features a mix of your favorite songs, as well as traditional wedding favorites, you can ensure that your wedding music creates a memorable and meaningful experience for you and your guests.
