8 Reasons Why Music is Important for Your Wedding 30 October 2014 Admin Our Posts We've heard it countless times: "Entertainment is an integral and meaningful aspect of every wedding." According to a survey, around 81% of wedding guests said that the wedding entertainment was the one thing they remembered most. Despite this fact however, many engaged couples still don’t put wedding music on top of their planning priorities. The VinylsBut why is it important, really? Why should you prioritise your wedding music and wedding band over, let’s say, your wedding favors or your wedding shoes? Here are 8 reasons why. 1. It’s what your guests will remember more than anything. As mentioned earlier, wedding entertainment is what guests will remember most. Not all of them will remember the type of flowers on your bouquet, or the number of tiers on your wedding cake, or the colour your table napkins. They might remember what they had for a starter, but they will definitely remember the wedding band that rocked your party and got your father-in-law dancing all night on the dance floor. 2. It sets the tone of your special day. Photo from Flickr, by Christopher.F PhotographyYour wedding music is like the soundtrack of your wedding ceremony. It sets a romantic atmosphere and allows guests to take part in the joy of your union. Without music (or with the wrong playlist), chances are most guests would leave right after eating. To ensure that the music would really set the mood of your wedding day (instead of kill it), discuss your ideas with reliable music agencies. These professionals can assist you in matching the type of wedding band to your wedding theme, decor and food. For example, a classy and elegant wedding would be great with classical artists while a vintage-style wedding will be perfect with jazz & blues bands. 3. Great music energises the crowd.

Music amplifies the happiness of the couple’s newlywed status, and gets everyone in the mood to celebrate. A professional wedding band creates a festive vibe and keeps the party going. They know how to get your guests out of their seats and happily on their feet until it’s time to go home. So before booking your wedding band, watch them perform live. See if they are charismatic enough to get everybody dance. 4. It brings people together.Weddings are huge gatherings that involve friends and family from all walks of life and generations. Apart from alcohol, music helps break social barriers among guests and makes them loosen up. Mingling with people without background music can be terribly awkward.

Your older aunts and uncles might not be able to stay on the dance floor as long as the other guests, but they’re far from sleepy. Great music plus great performers keep everyone wide awake, alert, and tapping their feet to the beat. 6. It entertains all guests, young and old.
