Are there any West Indian/Guyanese/Trinidian brides out there, and if so, what music are you playing at your wedding? I grew up in Canada, and don’t live in an area where there is a lot of family or people from the West Indies, so I have no idea what is “popular”. I’m looking for mainly soca/calypso songs that family (especially the older folks) would enjoy.

My family is Jamaican and I’m also having trouble coming up with a list.

Jamaican here 🙂 I am doing a mix of 80’s 90’s reggae in the beginning of the reception…. I want something smooth and soothing to play during dinner. Something you can rock to while ur eating, lol. Like Beres Hammond, Sanchez, Gregory Issacs, Freddy McGregor, Dennis Brown, (just to name a few, lol) As the night goes on the music will roll over into 80’s 90 reggae dancehall like Tanto Metro and Devonte (everyone falls in love sometimes), Buju, Bennie Man, Maxi Priest…..and the list goes on, lol. I want the music to flow from soft and soothing to get up and dance the night away. I will do some newer dancehall but they will be the clean versions… nothing out of order. The old and young ppl will enjoy it either way….cause everybody love 80’s and 90’s reggae/ dancehall 🙂

- Wedding: November 2017 - France
My family is from all over the Caribbean, I was raised in the US Virgin Islands, I’m going to have Bollywood songs because I just love them, we’ll have some Zouk as well because my SO is French and his father’s side is from Guadeloupe, some coupe decale, SOs mother is from Benin. A nice blend of music.
