We want EVERYONE to enjoy your wedding!
We’re firm believers that there is a time and a place for everything! With the right crowd, at the right party, or the right club, we’ve been known to make it steamy on the dancefloor! And, by all means, if it’s your thing, get your grind on, at your bachelor or bachelorette parties and get as wild as you want!
That being said, we don’t believe your wedding reception is the place for that, and prefer to abide by the precautionary principle and focus on music that everyone, from your tiniest guests to your oldest guests will enjoy! And, it won’t take away from the party. We promise! Because, while you might think nothing of dropping it down low to some unedited Nicky Minaj, Lil’ Kim, or Ginuwine, it’s doubtful that your Grandma and Grandpa feel the same way, or that your little ring bearers or flower girls need to see it!
Lessons were learned that day!
Trust me when I say that they don’t need to see it! I’m speaking from experience! A few years ago, I was attending a friend’s wedding as a guest. After dinner, the dance started up, it was still early in the night, and it was going well! The dance floor was packed! Then the DJ played Pony by Ginuwine… Let’s just say that there were more than a few horrified & surprised parents & kids watching a bridesmaid drop to the ground and proceed to grind (and more) with the dance floor. There were bewildered looks and mouths hanging open everywhere! Truthfully it was super awkward and took a while for the party to recover. Not exactly the memory you want your guests to leave with!
In the end you want your wedding day to be remembered for all the amazing moments throughout the day and all the love that was witnessed and shared, not informal sex ed demonstrations by the bridal party!
It can still be all about you!
At the end of the day the music that’s played at your wedding should be a reflection of you, but there are ways to do that that will make your wedding inclusive and comfortable for all your guests. We believe that should definitely be one of your end goals, because as much as your wedding is about you, it’s also about all the people you love enough to share it with! Even if you tone down your music you’re still going to have a great time! We guarantee it!
A few suggestions are: Clean or radio edits of songs you absolutely must hear, honoring guests requests only within certain parameters, a timeline/cut off i.e. no ‘f’ bombs or raunchy lyrics before 11:00pm, or the couple can let you know when they feel it’s okay to proceed to get dirty! If none of that appeals, you might want to end your reception a little earlier, and have an after party with just your friends!
