Let the music be the life of the party!

Whether you consider yourselves music people or not no one can really have a wedding party without music! Let your wedding be even more fun and lively with choosing the music closest to your heart and by avoiding certain mistakes that could put off the ambiance of the day.

We’re here to help you avoid the most common mistakes when it comes to wedding music. So let’s not waste time. Here are the 10 most common wedding music mistakes people make:

1) Extremely loud music:

You know when you’re at a wedding and you can’t hear a word the person right next to you is saying? The music is extremely loud that you feel the beat in your guts! Don’t do that ever! No, seriously when the music is that loud it becomes quite annoying and physically exhausting. Put in mind that not all your guests are going to join the dance floor. Everyone at your wedding should enjoy their time whether they’ll be sitting around the tables chatting or they’ll be dancing the night through.

2) Music too low:

Music shouldn’t be too low either. Don’t go ruining the beat by making it too low that you're totally put off on the dance floor. Sure, you don’t want the music extremely loud for the reasons we just said but at the same time don’t overdo it by putting on really low music that people don’t get the hint that they’re supposed to get up and dance!

3) Sticking to one genre:

Another very important rule is to keep away from sticking to only one genre of music. Imagine a three-hour-long mahragan or house music that feels like the exact same track playing over and over again! Play around with different types of music so your party keeps hopping all night! 

4) Starting the ceremony in silence:

It’s a very tricky business to start your wedding without music. Of course, the Zafa is usually the entrance to most Egyptian weddings. However, if you’re deciding to skip the Zafa you need to look for an alternative. 

5) Never meeting your musicians in person:

If you’ve decided to hire musicians whether a music band or a DJ you must meet them in person before the wedding. This is a business meeting that you need to take care of because you can’t make a deal without finding out what you’re getting first. You need to know how professional these people are and you need to meet them face to face in order to communicate what you’d like better.

6) Skipping soundcheck:

Make sure after meeting the musicians that they make time to do a soundcheck before the wedding to make sure everything is on point. This is a part of their job so don’t hesitate to double-check with them. 

7) Not paying attention to your first song:

The first song shouldn't be just a slow love song that you play at the beginning of your wedding. You should choose a song that is meaningful to your relationship and it doesn’t even have to be slow! Just pick what expresses the type of relationship you have and make sure it's not too long either. 

8) Forgetting about the do not play and must playlists:

It’s very important when you meet with your musicians that you make sure they know which tracks you want them to play. If there are any songs you hate you’d better let them know about them as well. Other than that just let your musicians blow your mind away!

9) Playing tracks at the wrong moment:

Now you’re at a wedding and the song “enti ay kalam” for Tamim Younis plays the third or fourth song or an explicit mahragan plays right after the first song! Some songs just can’t be played before the after-party (when older people start leaving and everyone starts getting high from laughter and dancing). Unless you’re trying to make a statement here, don’t play a weary song at the wrong timing. 

10) Skipping the band without research:

Did you decide to skip the band or DJ altogether without doing any research? Say you have a budget for hiring musicians; you should at least do some research on your favorite musicians and see if they can come to your wedding. Everyone enjoys live music for sure because there is way more interaction and fun.  Give it a shot at the research before deciding on your wedding music!
