Wedding Day Playlists Perfected

by Ali Chambless

Wedding Day Playlists

When you think about music for your wedding day, often the reception playlist is the only thing that comes to mind. What songs do you want to hear while you’re getting ready? Walking down the aisle? Eating dinner? We asked local Austin + Hill Country entertainment pros to curate wedding day playlists perfected for these moments and more. Continue reading to get inspired (and, we’re linking the Spotify playlist so you can jam while you search!).

Getting Ready

There’s nothing like music to set the tone for the wedding day, and you’ll want a playlist that’s calm enough to play in the background but upbeat and playful to set the tone. Mix funk and soul songs with retro hits for a true “feel good” playlist.

The Vibe:

  • Kiss Me More (Feat. Sza) | Doja Cat
  • I Say a Little Prayer | Aretha Franklin
  • Harvest Moon | Poolside

 

Wedding Prelude

Just because you cut the vocals from your music for your entrance doesn’t mean you’re stuck with the standard wedding prelude songs. Get inspired by the Bridgerton soundtrack and have your DJ play string versions of your fave pop hits.

The Vibe:

  • Love Story | Vitamin String Quartet
  • Thinking Out Loud | Daniel Jang
  • Closer | Brooklyn Duo

 

Wedding Dinner

Insert all your acoustic “soft pop” faves and sappy love songs for a romantic wedding dinner. The more muted music will make it easy for guests to chat without bringing down the mood for dancing to follow.

The Vibe:

  • Suit & Tie | Tyler Ward
  • No Scrubs | William Singe
  • Man in the Mirror | James Morrison

 

Pro Tip: Always provide a “Do Not Play” list to your DJ or band for clear communication on your music taste so your wedding day playlists are perfect! Source the best entertainment vendors in Austin + Hill Country and beyond, and get ready to dance the night away!
