Cocktail Hour Music

Recommended Posts

I know there are tons of posts about music during the ceremony and certain parts of the reception. But I am no getting a marichi band for cocktail hour (due to the expense, not that I wouldnt LOVE one). But I have to make a playlist of my own music but dont know what... Anyone have any suggestions. I dont want too slow or music you would necessarliy break out a dance move with. haha

I like all kinds of music, and suggestions?

I am currently working on my playlist.

 

I copied into MS Word lots of the playlists posted on here and am weeding through those as I put mine together, picking what I like and adding it to my playlist.

 

Here's the lists I copied, but I'd look in the music thread and see for yourself too b/c there are tons more I didn't get to put on here.

I am not sure if this insterests you at all, but for dinner music we used these cd's Rockabye Baby! - Transform your favorite rock music into baby music.

 

Our guests loved them, they kept trying to guess the band and song name. It was fun and still let people talk and listen to songs they liked, just differently.

 

Some might think its a terrible idea, but we loved it and so did our guests, so I thought I should post it in case someone else thinks its as great as well did.

 

We had Tool (one of my fave bands), Metallica, U2, Cold Play, Nirvana and Beatles. We wanted Nine Inch Nails but could not find it in the stores near us.

What a great idea. I can see where this could be a lullaby, but then again. You can take musci everyone knows and make the music more intimate Love it! Thanks a bunch!

OMG Julie! That's awesome! We played old classics by Frank Sinatra and Michael Buble during dinner but that's awesome.. how fun! I added a bookmark for that page to refer back to for a great baby shower gift or even my own kids some day.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
