One of the most important aspects of any wedding is the music that’s played during the reception. Sure, there are lots of other things that you’re going to want to consider during the planning process – what kind of food to have, how to decorate your tables and the reception hall, and much more – but the music is really going to determine whether or not people have a great time at your wedding. If you pick the wrong music to play, people might not get out on the dance floor and enjoy themselves, and the last thing you want is for your big wedding celebration to seem like a dud!
Blues music might not necessarily seem like a logical first choice for a wedding, but there are plenty of fun blues standards that will sound right at home during your wedding. Plus, some blues tunes can make an especially good choice for a first dance, as The Knot notes. Here are just a few of the blues songs you should consider playing at your wedding reception.
