How to choose The Right Music for the Cocktail Hour

Oct 5, 2022

When it comes to wedding music, cocktail hour is often overlooked. But this time can be one of the most important parts of your reception!

The cocktail hour is an excellent opportunity to set the tone for the rest of the evening and get your guests in the party mood.

So, what kind of music should you play during cocktail hour? It depends on the overall feel you want to create for your reception!

  • The Mood Matters

If you’re going for a more relaxed vibe, then some easy-listening tunes or smooth jazz would be perfect. Or, if you want to get people up and dancing from the start, then some upbeat pop or dance tracks would be ideal!

  • The Kind of Music Matters

Of course, ensuring that the music you choose is appropriate for your guests is also important. For example, if you have a lot of older guests, avoid anything too modern. And it’s always a good idea to avoid any songs with explicit lyrics.

  • The Tone of the Reception Matters

Ultimately, choosing music that you and your guests will enjoy is the most important thing. So take some time to think about the overall tone you want to set for your reception, and then pick some tunes that will help you create that atmosphere.

Your cocktail hour music can be a great way to get the party started and set the tone for a night of revelry. Play the right music, and your guests will be relaxed and comfortable while still having the energy to keep them excited and eager to dance later in the celebration!
