Music is an amazing gift – the more you listen to it, the more you fall in love with it. And you really explore it, you’ll notice that every decade (at least in modern times!) has its very own genres of marvelous music.
So is it a good idea to choose a particular musical decade as a theme for your wedding playlist? And, if so, which one is the best?
We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.
Generally speaking, we don’t advise couples to settle on just one musical decade and play it out to exhaustion. No matter how much your guests may like the music from a specific decade, it is unlikely that they will like hearing just that all night long, and it is unlikely that all of them will like that particular decade’s influences anyway. Remember, your wedding guests are likely to span multiple generations. Therefore, it only makes sense that you would play music from multiple decades.
It’s a perfectly good idea to coordinate your music with your wedding theme – but not to the point where you’re playing only one genre of music or music from only one decade. For instance, if you are having a country chic wedding, playing country music makes perfect sense. However, you should probably alternate in other genres. You can definitely play your theme genre for the key moments (such as for the first dance, father-bride dance, and for your farewell, for example).
If you really want to choose music from only one decade, choose our current decade. The more recent the music is, the more likely it is that it will bear with it influences from multiple genres and decades. We are at a point in the history of music where the boundaries between various genres and styles are slowly being erased – and this means that you can actually get “a bit of everything”.
Overall, try to be balanced. Your wedding guests are likely to be diverse and they will most likely have very diverse musical tastes. Since you want everyone to feel good and have a blast on the dance floor, creating a balanced playlist is absolutely crucial.
