Creating A Wedding Set List

by Sheldon Conrich 17 May 2024

Planning a wedding can be a daunting task, especially when it comes to choosing the right music for the big day. As a singer or musician, creating the perfect set list can make all the difference in setting the tone for the celebration. Here are some tips to help you craft a wedding set list that will have everyone on their feet!

Understand the Audience

Before you start putting together your set list, it's important to understand the audience you'll be performing for. Consider the age group of the guests, their musical preferences, and the overall vibe of the wedding. Tailoring your set list to the audience will ensure that everyone has a great time on the dance floor.

Variety is Key

When creating a wedding set list, it's important to include a variety of songs to cater to different tastes. Mix it up with a combination of classic hits, current chart-toppers, and maybe even a few crowd-pleasing sing-alongs. Keep the energy levels in mind and plan your set list accordingly to keep the vibe going. Check out some of our acoustic backing tracks for song ideas.

Consider the Flow

Think about the flow of the wedding day and how your music can enhance each moment. Start with some mellow tunes during the pre ceremony drinks, ramp up the energy during the reception, and save the biggest hits for the dance party. Transition smoothly between songs to keep the momentum going and create a seamless musical experience.

Collaborate with the Couple

Don't forget to consult with the couple getting married to get a sense of their musical preferences. Ask them for any special songs they'd like to include, whether it's their first dance song or a meaningful track that holds sentimental value. Incorporating these personal touches will make the set list even more special for the newlyweds. If your couple need a special song and you can't find it online, get in touch as we can create a custom acoustic backing track for moments like this.

Practice, Practice, Practice

Once you've finalised your wedding set list, make sure to practice each song until you feel confident in your performance. Pay attention to transitions, key changes, and any special arrangements you've made. The more prepared you are, the smoother your performance will be on the big day. All our acoustic backing tracks come with guide melody tracks to help with this practise so you're fully prepared on the special day.
