Pop Tops Country and Other Insider Wedding Info

Wedding TrendsWhen it comes to weddings, there tend to be many different trends that change from year to year, and that’s as true when it comes to wedding music as it is with dresses, flowers and desserts. Thumbtack recently put together a wedding trends report that shows some of the biggest trends and there are some pretty interesting results.

For example, when it comes to reception music, pop music is still the No. 1 choice to get you and your guests on the dance floor. However, country music is a close second in several states across the country. That comes as no surprise to us, and our song list is full of great pop and country hits that are sure to keep your guests happy all night long.

Another growing trend is the demand for highlight videos. Videographers have seen an 8 percent increase in the request for these video packages which are primarily created for the bride and groom and for social sharing. Many times these videos include some musical tracks from the band, and our hits would make a great background for your highlight video.

The way dessert is done is also undergoing a bit of a shift. Cupcakes are very popular, especially in 2016 as 10 percent  more couples will be using them as their dessert of choice. The reason for the shift is the cupcakes allow for much more personalization than an everyday wedding cake. People want their wedding day to be special, so why not have a dessert that emphasizes that?

On the topic of sweet, hiring Shakedown Entertainment as your wedding band is a sweet choice that you’re sure enjoy. We play all different genres of music that will have you and your guests on the dance floor all night long.
