Best Wedding DJ Melbourne – Wedding Reception Song Suggestions

Choosing wedding songs can be a tough decision when planning a wedding reception or ceremony.  You want to play a blend of music for all ages from new age music to the old time classics and even something for your grand parents (they love to dance too). As one of the Best Wedding DJ Melbourne, here are some of the tips I could offer when choosing the perfect wedding songs.

Nail the first song

The first song that gets played when you want everyone up and dancing can make or break the reception. Stevie Wonders Signed, Sealed, Delivered always get’s an awesome result. It is the perfect combination of energetic, fun  and well known enough that any age can get up and dance. You do not want the most popular new song out, but something people know. Make sure it is not too slow or that it is not too fast either.

Don’t worry about the words

Not every song has to be a love song. It’s ok to choose songs that do not have a love theme.

Bouquet & Garter songs

For this fun part of the wedding you should pick an upbeat song. For the bouquet toss you could literally pick “single ladies” since you will be inviting all the single ladies up to dance. Have fun with it and be creative or alternative you could pick something like ‘Oh Yeah’ by Yellow as a garter song and have people laughing.

Cake cutting song

Cake cutting songs can be love songs, but do not have to be. Upbeats songs work well here too. Happy by Pharrell Williams seems to be a popular choice here.

First dance

The first dance song can be anything you like from a song that means something to you or if you are doing a special dance then maybe something upbeat and fun. Make sure you take the time to enjoy whatever song and dance you decide on doing.
