The perfect wedding playlist: balancing ballads and beats

Updated: Aug 8, 2022

You’ve planned everything perfectly—the venue, the outfits, and even the decor. But what about the music? The right choice of songs can truly set the tone of your wedding day, but with so many to choose from, it can be hard to know where to start. Fortunately, as an experienced DJ from NY I have come up with a guide to help you develop your own playlist for the big day! Types of music for different moods

Music has the ability to set the tone for any event. When creating a playlist for your wedding, it's important to consider the overall mood you want to create. For example, if you want a more romantic atmosphere, ballads may be the way to go. However, if you're looking to get everyone on their feet and dancing, you'll want to focus on upbeat tracks. The key is to strike a balance between the two so that your guests can enjoy themselves no matter what their taste in music may be.



Songs that won’t annoy your guests

You want your wedding playlist to be enjoyable for all your guests, not just you and your spouse. Here are some tips for picking songs that will please a wide range of people.

First, consider the age range of your guests. If you have a lot of young people attending, you’ll want to avoid anything too slow or sentimental. On the other hand, if most of your guests are older, you don’t want to play anything too upbeat or fast-paced.



Emotion-inducing songs

Your wedding day is a day to remember for the rest of your life. You want your guests to feel the love in the air, and what better way to do that than with some amazing music? While you should definitely have some upbeat songs to get everyone on their feet, don't forget about the slower, more emotion-inducing songs. These are the ones that will really make your guests feel the love.



Fun songs

A good wedding playlist should have a mix of fun songs that will get everyone on the dance floor. Try to include a variety of genres so there's something for everyone. Up-tempo songs are great for getting people out of their seats, but don't forget to include some slower songs for those who want to take a break from dancing. And last but not least, make sure to choose songs that you and your spouse love!



Slow dances

A good slow dance song is one that can make you feel romantic and nostalgic. Some of our favorites include At Last by Etta James, Unchained Melody by the Righteous Brothers, and Stand by Me by Ben E. King. But if you're looking for something a little more modern, Justin Bieber's Love Yourself is a great choice.


Upbeat songs

You want your guests to feel the love in the air, and what better way to do that than with some upbeat tunes? But beware, too many fast songs in a row can make people restless. Be sure to mix things up and keep the energy level high without going overboard.
