msfreemis:  We’re also having a Sunday brunch reception.  Our music list includes some movie themes (instrumental), some classical, some Classic meets Cuba music, and a range of other music styles all chosen to be background, but not elevator music.  LOL   So, I think slow music is a good idea!

msfreemis:  If it’s what you want, go for it!  You know your guests better than any of us, and whether they’d like to slow dance to some songs or not.

I’m having a Saturday brunch reception outside on the water in Florida, and our group of friends have been pretty clear that they expect us to still have good dancing!  Depends on your crowd.

Suggest mood music. I think asking guests what their wedding songs were is an ADORABLE idea I love that.  I was just at a daytime wedding where the DJ was howling “EVERYBODY ON THE DANCE FLOOOOORRR” at like… noon. It wasn’t happening. And all of us love to dance, it was just a little early.

I agree with PP it is a bit hard to get down during brunch time. I’ve been to two brunch weddings where both the brides were certain that the guests would still dance and that wasn’t the case at all. I love brunch weddings because I think they are romantic and lovely. I would just look for slower music, and I must say your idea about the other weddings songs is to die for and would not be lost on your guests.

msfreemis: As  PP’s have said, you know your guests better than we do but here is one thing to consider. Does everyone get a Plus 1/Date to your wedding? Reason I am asking is because if I were invited to a brunch wedding and all there was playing was slow music, I may or may not stay long if I didn’t have someone to dance to slow songs with. If not, I might not stay as long. I wouldn’t play club music either don’t get me wrong but I am sure theres music that could fit your wedding. Talk to your DJ and see what they say. If your DJ is good at doing his/her job, they should be able to read the crowd and see what they like/don’t like as people leave/enter the dance floor. I’m sure all will work out just fine!

 msfreemis:  You sound like my kindred spirit.  Can I ask what you ended up going with?  I am having a Sat evening reception, but I also want easy listening and not a club style dance party.
