Updated: Feb 22, 2022
The trick to having an unforgettable wedding night is to have the dance floor packed! Let’s be real, no one wants an empty dance floor at their reception, which is why you’re considering what entertainment to book for your wedding! After countless years of experience within the music industry, we’ve picked up a few tips along the way ;).
There’s no such thing as a one-size-fits-all wedding band, which is why we invite you to be a part of the process to make your wedding night exactly what you want! Here’s a list of tips we have for keeping the dance floor packed!
Make a playlist that you love and that your guests will love. When you pick the right band, they will also confirm that these are good picks to keep packing the dance floor.
Get requests from your guests before talking to your band. People always love hearing songs that they requested, what’s better than feeling that special?
Skip the iPod - there’s a reason you see entertainment at almost every wedding. They're pros at reading and interacting with the crowd and adjusting to the music/energy throughout the evening.
Create a Do-Not Play List with your entertainment to ensure you’re getting everything you and your guests want instead of something that is going to rub everyone the wrong way.
Keep things exciting! What’s better than experiencing different singers, MC’s and brass instruments? If this is something you’re interested in, please make sure to let us know and I’m sure we can find a way to work something special into your night!
Start the night early, not having a boring cocktail and dinner music is a must to not put everyone to sleep. Remember, it’s a long day of photos, eating and maybe a little drinking!
Pay attention to seating charts, no one wants to be put next to the dance floor when they can’t hear the person next to them. Put your friends that you know are going to dance next to the dance floor so they can help get the party started!
Mix up the music but make sure you keep the momentum going. No one wants to hear two slow songs in a row. Make sure you pick music for every age group, a tip from us is, starting with older classics first and getting into newer songs towards the middle/end of the party.
Is the bar close to the dance floor? Imagine having your guests leave to get a drink in another room or even outside on a warm summer night. Make sure that the bar is close so people can get drinks quickly so they can come back and dance their butts off!
Make sure to get on the dance floor! Wait, it’s your wedding and you still have to dance? YES, of course you have to dance, enjoy your night and your guest will follow along with your energy to pack the dance floor!
