So, I’m a Georgia peach and Fiance had lived here his whole life too. We loveeee country music and go to country concerts together and I really want to have country music at our reception!! I want to know how other people incorporated country music into their wedding reception. Did people really get into it and dance or did you just have it playing during the less lively parts or what? I was honestly thinking of getting a caller to do square dance stuff but then that would basically turn it into a hoedown and we aren’t THAT country 🙂
P.S. We are having a DJ

I guess it really depends on what your friends & family listen to. Do they listen to alot of country?
I’m from a totally differant state than you, where 80’s to modern rock is popular, along with some of the newer pop stuff. We also listen to alot of the 90’s.

@FutureMrsT1221: I’d mix in some old school and popular stuff, but wouldn’t make it the main thing. Do whatever appeals to you and your crowd!

@FutureMrsT1221: A good DJ should be able to mix in country into the regular playlist. If you’ve ever been to a country bar you will know that country music listening folks like to dance just as much as everyone else. I don’t know that I would go heavy on it unless I knew a substantial number of the guests liked country music as well. Remember that older country music listeners also like Southern Rock like Lynard Skynard, Blue Oyster Cult, and Credence Clearwater Revival, and Classic Rock like Bob Seger and the Eagles.

@jenilynevette: I would say the majority of our friends and family love country too!

@beachbride1216: thanks for the suggestions! I guess the DJ can probably just gauge what gets people going too. If the country is a flop he can play more popular stuff. If everyone is loving the country he can play more of it 🙂

@FutureMrsT1221: We did it for my Mom (she’s been doing country line dancing for years) and it totally looked like a hoedown but everyone seemed to be having a good time.
