wedding music

With every wedding, comes wedding music. Music is a wonderful form of entertainment for any event, especially for such a special occasion as your wedding. With the right music, your big day is sure to be a success! However, with the wrong music, it could create a lackluster atmosphere and discourage your guests from dancing.

With many songs to choose from to develop your wedding music playlist, are you aware of some genres that should be avoided?

We are honored with the opportunity to pump up weddings with great music! That’s why, here at Black Tie Productions, we have gathered some wedding music genres that you should avoid playing during your big day. If you are curious to learn what they are, be sure to continue reading:

  • Don’t put your guests to sleep! When it comes to a wedding reception, you will want your guests to dance and have a festive time. Therefore, slow songs should be avoided. Playing a slow song here and there is alright, but in general, your music should be upbeat and fun. If slow songs are presented, those who do not have partners will most likely leave the dance floor, which is not ideal.
  • Don’t blow your guest’s ear drums! Heavy metal may be adored by some, but within a wedding, it should be avoided. With loud screaming and rhythm that is hard to dance to, it certainly isn’t a great choice to present within your reception. However, general or soft rock can always be enjoyed by guests of any age.
  • Don’t offend your guests! With foul language and negative lyrics, rap can present itself as a more “dirty” genre that may offend children and grandparents. With guests of all ages attending your wedding, you will want to ensure that your music is appropriate for all. If, however, you choose to play rap, know that there are some songs that are more clean and easier to dance to than others.

With the right music presented within your reception, your guests will certainly enjoy your dance floor. These are just a few genres that you should consider avoiding.
