5 Wedding Mixes to Play at Your Reception

Whether you follow these lists or take inspiration to craft your own mix, your favorite musical genre can help set the tone for your wedding celebration!

The right music can add to the overall atmosphere of your wedding. If you’re an outgoing pair, everyone will expect to hear lively tunes that reflect your fiery spirits. If you’re more laid-back, it only follows that you’ll play relaxing tunes—not something that would be heard at a rock concert.

Look through the lists below to find your possible playlist match, then save the songs on your phone with a few of your favorites thrown in. You can also submit the track list to your DJ to compile before the big day.

Choosing songs featuring soft, silken voices and gentle guitar strumming or piano playing will make your wedding bash totally chill.
