When selecting music to play during dinner at your wedding reception, the same care should be taken as if you were selecting music to dance to. The music played during dinner can keep the energy level up in a room even though it’s the most relaxed time of the night.
The tone of your wedding reception should have been set well with a great grand entrance. The dinner music should keep with the tone of the event and is often overlooked.
