Live Mexican music but not Mariachi.  Just a three piece acoustic group.

During dinner, we had Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Tony Bennett, etc. It might not have been original or unique but it was really nice.

During their 20 minute supper break, our band played recorded music, including one of the bride’s favorites – on request. They did the same for both my daughter’s weddings, although they were from the same talent group. Some bands just leave a guitarist, to take a later supper break. It didn’t add to their quoted cost.

kelsie5388:  We had a wide variety of our favourites that were suitable for background, ‘America’, ‘Turin Brakes’, sorry I can’t remember any others right now.

Wide variety! I am making the playlist and it will all be “love” themed songs. The artsists rangef rom Justin Timberlake, Michael Buble, Frank Sinatra, Adele, Aerosmith, The Beatles, Keith Urban, Jason Mraz, Hunter Hayes, Florence and the Machine, Snow Patrol, Tim McGraw, and so many more.

I actually only need about 3 hours of music, and the list I’ve made is closer to 5 – so I must narrow down… which is super hard! We have a band for the dance, and will also play our own picks during their breaks.

Our band includes dinner music and it’s low key, atmospheric, instrumental music.

I second the Dean Martin, Sinatra, etc. motion!  I’m debating between that and some old reggae/ska/two-tone for my upcoming nuptuals.  I also have a playlist of songs that I was considering for the first dance (I’m talking 20+ songs here) that got rejected that I’m thinking about.  They’re all slow and about love, and I think it may be appropriate!  Just some options, hope I didn’t add to the confusion!
