It's easier than you might think...
If there’s one sure way to get your nearest and dearest on the dancefloor at your wedding reception, it’s the music. Whether you plan to connect your iPod to the speakers, hire a DJ or even book a live band for the night, the music is key to guaranteeing people head on over to the dancefloor - and stay there!
(After all: no one likes to see an empty dancefloor, do they?)
Worried about song requests to give your DJ? Pondering about creating your own playlist? Dreading the moment you realise none of your guests are as ‘into’ drum-and-bass as you and your H2B are? Well - there’s an easy-peasy solution.
When you send out your RSVP cards, ask guests to tell you the one (or two!) songs they’d love to hear played at your reception. Then, use the list of songs to compile a playlist that’s as unique and bespoke as your celebration.
Already sent out your RSVPs - but love the idea? Split your guest list between you and your partner and contact people individually. It might seem like - yawn - another thing to add to your ever-growing wedmin to-do list but trust us, it’ll be worth it when you see the people you love the most having a wonderful time.
