I’m working on my wedding playlist and trying to figure out an estimate of how many songs I need to come up with. The wedding will start at 1pm and the ceremony will only last like 10 minutes. After that we’ll start playing music…no toasts or any introductions… We figure people will leave between 6 and 9, but we’re not really sure when. How many songs would you estimate??

@lessons: Songs are typically between 2.5 to 3 minutes long. from 1 to 9, it’s 8 hours or 480 minutes. if you divide 480 by 3, you get 160.
I used 3 because it’s the most common number on my playlist. Most range between 2:55 to 3:52. So it’s gonna be a very rough estimate
So, at least that many songs, perhaps? At least, that’s how I would guesstimate it. You could also add up the times of each song you want using the calculator on your computer until you get to 480 minutes.
Remember: some songs are longer, some shorter. If you plan on at least 100-150, you can put it on “repeat” or “shuffle” and be fine. Some might (will probably) play over.
hope that helps!!!
