The Wedding Reception

Brett Foreman Band performing at South Florida wedding

Well, today’s post is all about the wedding reception! This is the centerpiece of the evening and helps celebrate the joining of the bride and groom and your families. This is the part of the evening when you want your personalities to come out as well as bring in touches of your families’ heritage, which is a really fun element for your guests. Whether you want a fun dance band like Winslow and The Rockefellers, or a high energy 8 piece like The Brett Foreman Band, or maybe even a DJ like DJ BoTY, we have dozens of options at our disposal no matter your style.

Here are some of the questions you should ask as you are trying to determine what style of music you want and what would work with your venue:

  1. When you turn on the radio, what are the top three music genres you gravitate toward?
  2. Are there any secondary styles you want just a touch of, but don’t necessarily want the entire evening to consist of?
  3. Are there any songs you don’t want to hear throughout the night?
  4. What are your special songs for your personal moments? For example, during your first dance or cake cutting.
  5. Remember your guests. What music would they enjoy?


In some cases, we have had couples hire a band who performed through portions of the night and a DJ who played through other portions of the evening. A reason why couples have chosen a band/DJ combo is because they loved the energy that a live band offers but had certain songs that they LOVE just as they are. This approach comes in handy when you have an extremely broad variety of songs that the couples want played.

All of our entertainers and bands have worked together in some capacity to ensure that the flow of the evening is flawlessly maintained and the transition between one phase and the next is smooth and seamless. These are things that you don’t really value until you have had the opportunity to attend an event where these transitions are NOT handled well.

We would love to have the opportunity to talk to you about what you envision, what your style and personalities are, and how we can bring that to life with your wedding day entertainment! We welcome the conversation and look forward to talking! After all, we are in the business of making your event absolutely spectacular!
