IMG_3566 (1)wtmk

You’ll want to avoid these simples wedding music mistakes….

Silence is Not Golden

Wedding guest are anxious to head the cocktail hour and head to the bar and relax.  Nothing makes this time seem interminable than silence.  Always have a constant flow of music.  You might think that having no music during cocktail hour mail save you some money but it makes for a LONG reception for your guests and is often a big mistake.  One of our suggestions is one of our live musicians – a strolling violin or a guitarist.  Music like this will help make your guests feel more comfortable and create a pleasing atmosphere.

Second Guessing A Professional

In order to save some money, you might think that providing your own music via an mp3 player and your favorite streaming service will be enough for the reception…. WRONG!!! Hiring a professional means you won’t have to worry about managing the music and events along with all the other things you have to do on your wedding day.  Even if you put a “friend” in charge… they are still NOT a professional and will not pick up on the cues, that emcees know for announcing key moments as well as motivating your guests to the dance floor.  ATMOSPHERE PRODUCTIONS provides carefree planning and stress-free wedding day co-ordination.

Not Providing A Song List

You have those “MUST” play songs and then theres the one you’d hate to hear at your wedding.  Well, your DJ can’t read your mind!  It’s essential to provide a reasonable song suggestion list with “must plays” and “do not plays”, a reasonable time prior to your reception.  This gives the DJ plenty of time to review and organize these selections.  Failing to do so is huge mistake.

Playing Only One Type Of Music

Creating your own CLUB night at your wedding may not be a bad idea but playing ONLY one type of music during the reception is a musical mistake.  Playing too many songs from just one genre of music will alienate your guests and surely will encourage them to leave early.  Create a welcoming atmosphere by selecting music from different eras and genres to keep as many of your guests on the the dance floor.  ATMOSPHERE PRODUCTIONS knows how to play a great mix that will appeal to the masses and will help you create your music list directly from our Top Hits page and custom lists for our booked clients.

Music is a key element of any great wedding reception.  It’s essential that couples take these steps to avoid a wedding day musical mistake.
