Wedding dinner music

Time to eat! Your guests have settled in after a bit of mixing and mingling at the cocktail hour and their stomachs are probably rumbling. While the spotlight should shine on the guests’ conversations and amazing food you’ve chosen, you don’t want to leave your reception without wedding dinner music. Instead of opting for upbeat dance tracks, we suggest slowing things down for this portion of the night with our picks for the best songs for the wedding dinner. Save all those party jams for when you’re ready to let loose on the dance floor later on.
