Music For Cocktail Hour And Dinner
Exactly what type of music should you play during your wedding cocktail or dinner? You might want to try a different style for each. Here are a couple of quick clips of different themed wedding cocktail hour music. We will design a mix of wedding music around any theme that you give us or if you’d prefer, you can choose your favorite wedding tunes through our online planning tools and simply submit your list.
Listen, be inspired and create your own style for your wedding cocktail and dinner music. No one says you have to play instrumental jazz for 2 hours at your wedding – especially if you are trying to build energy for dancing later.
I had one wedding client in Northampton who found this great trio to play for her ceremony downstairs, then she brought them up into the lobby for cocktail hour and then into the ballroom for dinner music. By the time I was able to start playing, the trio had bored everyone to death for the last 3 hours. People were leaving before dessert even came out or I was able to play a single song. Sometimes the same thing for 2 hours is even too much. That’s why we always suggest mixing things up between cocktails and dinner-style music. Keep your wedding guests entertained even with the background music. After all, you are trying to set a tone and build energy for dancing later, right?
