A bride and groom we worked with recently knew the sort of music they wanted, but were not sure how to make it work on the dance floor. The bride’s father had a specific, quite unusual taste in music, as did the groom; in addition, the bride’s friends were very into one sort of music, whilst the groom’s friends were heavily into a completely different genre. We met several times to discuss the music required. The remit? Everyone’s tastes needed to be catered for, but no one was to be alienated at any time, either. We put forward ideas for building the playlist so that everyone could be musically accommodated, including guests with more mainstream tastes. We suggested some of the ‘big’ tracks from each genre, as well as some more ‘underground’ choices that might work well on the dance floor. By selecting these ‘big’ songs, even guests who were not die-hard fans of the music would be able to enjoy themselves. Finally, having carefully built the track list in collaboration with the bride and groom, we were able to present the set on the night perfectly. The dance floor was filled from start to finish. Our clients were delighted! For us, no play list is too challenging. In fact, we relish the opportunity to put our musical know-how to the test. If you want to have less mainstream music at your wedding reception but are not quite sure how to make it work, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
