Weddings account for a more than $61 billion industry, due in large part to the fact that people go above and beyond to make this day special and memorable. The smallest details make a big difference, which is why so many people begin planning their weddings a year to a year-and-a-half from the date.
Many of our memories are tied to music, so your song selection is essential. While you probably start with the songs for the first dance, walking down the aisle, mother-son, and father-daughter dances, don’t forget about background dinner songs that will set the mood.
With the right wedding dinner playlist, you’ll create an amazing environment that people will remember when they think back to your special day. Keep reading so that your wedding dinner is a success by choosing the right music.
