Are you planning your wedding and looking for some of the most popular songs right now? Our live bands and DJs pride themselves in creating the ultimate wedding playlist for each one of our couples. We work closely with each of our couples to determine what their individual tastes are and exactly what they envision their wedding night being like.
With that being said, we get a lot of song requests from our couples. Each one of our bands work endlessly to learn new songs and tailor their sound to what each bride and groom want. Usually the number one goal for each one of our couples is to pack the dance floor.
The perfect wedding playlist is a mix of new songs and oldies. Typically wedding playlists consist of 60% or more being classic songs that will make everyone want to dance. You must consider what songs will appeal to different generations: from grandparents, to nephews and nieces and even to friends your own age. That is why, here at BVTLive, we suggest that you offer a mix of “oldies but goodies” and new songs that you love.
