A variety of music will be the main source of entertainment at your reception. The music you choose will set the tone and atmosphere. Therefore, you need to make the decision on whether you would prefer a live band or a disc jockey.
Whether you choose a live band or a disc jockey, you should make sure you include music that both you and your guests will enjoy.
There are many different styles of music: classical, rock, pop, jazz, rhythm and blues, romantic, etc. The music you choose should match the setting.
