Everything you hear, see, smell, touch and taste on a wedding day is in celebration of the wedding couple. The food you eat will be a carefully thought-out menu that the bride and groom will have agreed on. The colors that fill the place will be harmonious, just like the way the bride and groom plan to live out for the rest of their lives.
The same applies to wedding music. Throughout the day, the wedding venue will be filled with reverberations from a selection of songs that celebrate their love.
Slow dance songs are a great way to provoke emotions from both the couple and the guests. As a wedding DJ, I've witnessed the importance of having the right music used to fill the day. For example, I like to use slow dance songs in between up-tempo music, as this keeps the overall atmosphere of the wedding a lively yet still sentimental one.
