Top 10 Song Choices for All Your Must Have, Wedding Reception Moments

Traditionally speaking, there are several moments everyone can expect to take place during any given wedding reception.  You can generally always count on a cake being cut, a bouquet being tossed and a garter being flung.  There will inevitably be a mother + son, father + daughter and bride +groom spin on the dance floor, followed by toasts and cheers and almost unavoidably a family member embarrassing him/herself… Yep, gotta love “those” people showing up for all our special occasion needs.

With that said, it’s easy to see why many brides and grooms have a hard time narrowing down what songs should be played at what events.  Whether there’s a lack of passion or too much passion behind the music, many couples either have too many song selections to pick from or not enough. 

And while there may be no perfect solution to finding the balance, here are some suggestions to get you started:
