Cupid’s Advice:

Your special day is right around the corner, but there are still a few finishing touches left to wrap up. What kind of music should be included at your reception and ceremony? Should you hire a band, a wedding singer, etc. Everyone has their own set of preferences, but Cupid has a few tips:

1. Personal wedding singer: If someone in your family is a good singer or if one of your good friends can belt out a nice tune, ask them to sing at your wedding. You can choose to pay them or ask them to sing at your ceremony and reception as a favor to you and your spouse.

2. Live band: What’s your partner’s favorite band? What’s your favorite song? Think about the different possibilities and see if you can hire a live band to perform at your wedding. The band can play a combination of all of your favorite hits as well as your honey’s.

3. DJ: If you want to hear a bit of everything at your reception, hire a DJ. Of course, you’ll need to give your preferred disc jokey a list of dos and don’t to play at your wedding. Once they get a feel of what you and your significant other like,  he/she will be able to keep everyone on their feet all night long.
