    @SamanthaSadlier: Hey, i think lyrics in the background would be fine as long as its not super upbeat. my wedding is a music theme…were doing an all beatles ceremony and then a 60s music reception. if you go with the beatles songs about love theyre usually pretty mellow sounding…even enough for a “no dancing” reception.

    You could have a lot of beautiful mellow Ella Fitzgerald, Chet Baker, Nat King Cole songs..that would be really lovely. Not elevator jazz, but really beautiful jazz that is still pleasant enough to be background music.

    I would do like old 40’s music or something, like Big Band.  And then do some Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin too.  Don’t do soft love songs, that will be too sappy imho.  Gotta have something more upbeat.  And music with vocals is fine.

    I think going with soft listening lyrical AND orchestral music will be beautiful. Why not do both? It will keep it different and then people won’t get too tired of just listening to one type of music all through dinner and drinks.

    I agree with some of the other posters, I think mellow jazz is in order for your reception….lots of Frank, Ella and Dean!!!
