Your Music Wedding Guide By the Numbers!!

5 Genre of Music to Consider

Want a party that's off the charts?  Match your music to the Reception vibe!

Here are 5 types of music to consider focusing your reception around!

1. Reggae- Consider this type for an informal outdoor or beach party!

2. Salsa-  Perfect for a clubby or Latin feel to your reception!

3. Bluegrass or Country-  Fun for a ranch, barn, or casual backyard blowout!

4. Swing-  Jazzy music that's danceable think Benny Goodman or Duke Ellington.  This will give you a retro-cool party.

5. International-  Add ethnic flavor to the festivities, perhaps a Celtic band or African rhythm to create the perfect mood!

Your Wedding Music Guide By The Numbers!

Your Wedding Music Guide all this Month from Perfect Weddings!

It's time for the holidays and what better time to think about what music you would like to have at your wedding.  Music can make or break an event.  All month long we'll be giving you some ideas and tips to help make your wedding the most musical anyone has ever heard!

3 Ways to Cut Costs On live Music!

Tip #1  Hire musicians to play the ceremony and the reception!  The longer you book a live band, the likelier they are to negotiate price or just charge less.

Tip #2  Book a Band with fewer musicians who can each play several instruments.  You will have more chance to get your money's worth and a variety of music.

Tip #3  Don't have the Band play the cocktail hour.  Ask your venue if there is equipment that would allow you to play recorded music for an hour!
