Wedding Cocktail Party Music


A wedding cocktail party offers more than the opportunity for your guests to gush about your beautiful ceremony over signature drinks and delicious hors d’oeuvres. Some guests will be introduced to your new husband and meet your new in-laws for the first time, while others will reconnect with old friends and distant family members they haven’t seen in ages. Your wedding cocktail party music should reflect the jovial vibe of this gathering yet it should be subtle enough not to drown out conversation. For this pre-reception gathering you’ll want to choose songs that are both upbeat and cater to all age groups. These 10 songs, including favourites from She & Him, Marvin Gaye and Wilco, will help create a relaxing and inviting atmosphere that will get your guests mingling.
