Quick tip of the day: Think about your guests.

The age range and tastes of your guests is one of the most important factors in choosing the entertainment for your special day. Try to come to some sort of middle point in the styles of music that they enjoy. Consider picking a wide range of repertoire and always have a look at the set list that your dj or band is going to play. The right order of material is equally as important the actual songs that you choose so think carefuloly about the order and timings of your sets.
