Wedding Music & Dancing: Personalizing Wedding Reception Music?
Q: Our wedding budget doesn't really allow for hiring additional wedding entertainment other than our wedding DJ. But is there a way we can incorporate unique wedding music into the wedding reception plans?
A: Choose a first dance song that really says something about you as a couple. Think about what makes you unique as a pair and try to find a song whose lyrics mimic those sentiments. Are you closet-oldies junkies? Try the Beatles' "All My Loving" on for size. Soulful song lovers might select "How Sweet It Is to Be Loved by You" as sung by Marvin Gaye. If you can take dance lessons, try rockin' out to the rumba or the tango, or learn how to swing rather than performing a basic waltz. Finally, consider burning CDs full of your favorite songs for totally unique, totally personable wedding favors that won't find a way into Sunday's garbage.
