    yes.  we made our own CD for the DJ to play.  It’s a little peppier than dinner music.

    We had our ceremony musicians play during cocktail hour and people loved it!

    Wondering about this, too. I think we might just put together a playlist on an ipod and use that during cocktail hr. Depends on DJ price.

    We’re having a jazz trio play at ours, but it was at a discount since the members are coming from out 9 piece band that is playing at the reception…

    Well, we’re not doing music for the first half, but the second half of cocktail hour we have a bellydancer coming (FMIL is Turkish so we thought it’d be a fun surprise) so I voted yes. I personally don’t think background music is necessary, people will be talking and drinking and it will largely go unnoticed..I don’t recall ever hearing (whether it happened and I didn’t notice or it just didn’t happen) music during a wedding cocktail hour before, so if you can’t afford it or don’t want the hassle, I wouldn’t sweat it 🙂

    Yes – we did.

    Every cocktail hour I’ve attended has had music too.

    We are, I mean it isn’t going to be like fist pumping tunes, just some subtle background noise
