Music for adult crowd?

Recommended Posts

OK so we have about 2 months till the wedding. It looks like we are having a smaller group and that they are mostly over 40. We have a handful of 25-35 yr olds attending. Here is my question, what type of music should we play? I dont think that a lot of people will be dancing (unless extremely intoxicated) so should we keep it melow? Also should we pay($500) for a sound system and someone to run it for only a group of 25? I am so stressed out about having everyone just sitting around staring at each other! Help me please.....

Wow, I feel soooo old now! How much over 40? Like 40-50? Or like 55 +?

If it's 40-50 (I'm 39, FI is 40) we're just like regular people...lol...you can play pretty much anything...maybe classic rock like Steve Miller Band...if it's over 55 that's another story....

Depends what type of music you like!

We're bringing an iPod docking station (instead of paying for the stereo set-up) since we're only 15 people. We're compiling a mix of mellow but cool music (jazz, world, French, etc..), including some Michael Bublé, Pink Martini (my favourite band ever, they're very diverse!), Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Ima, etc...

If any of our guests want to dance afterwards, we're planning on heading to the disco at the resort :-)

My girlfriends and I are all in our late 40's and we love to dance! We'll dance to the current stuff (Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake, Beyonce etc), but we'll dance to just about anything. There are some in our group that we always have to do the Timewarp for, and others that prefer disco, but our parties are nothing if we can't dance :)

Time Life has a CD set called the Romance series. Nat King Cole and classic love songs. Everyone love it. If you don't want to pay for a DJ maybe you can make sure they have a sound system and build a great Ipod play list. Another idea for getting the energy up is to have some "dance plants", a couple who gets out there and dances to get the energy up. My in-laws set the tone by breakdancing to the first song (yes they are 60 +). We also hired salsa instructors to come in 2 hours after the beginning of the cocktail session just to keep the energy going.

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
