So you’ve chosen your wedding theme, now it’s time to make sure you have the music to match! Here are a few ways you can make sure that your theme is incorporated on the dance floor.

1. Do your research!

No matter what your theme is, you can find the perfect reception music to go along with it. From old Hollywood to Bollywood. Do some detective work online or in print to find out what songs represent your theme to bring it to life.

2. Make use of every song.

If you find some music that won’t exactly draw a crowd to the dance floor, don’t toss it aside. Use these calmer pieces during cocktail hour and dinner. (This is a good time to add some more obscure songs that your guests may not know)!

3. Mix old and new.

Okay, now it’s time to dance but you still don’t have enough themed music to play for the rest of the night. Look for covers of some of the other songs you liked. Covers can turn some sleepy songs into something that will bring even your toughest critics out to dance.

4. Ask your friends!

You never know what your friends and family may have up their sleeves, make sure you ask for their input. They might just help you make the perfect playlist.

Mixteka is a great tool that can get your guests involved in the music selection process!
