The big questions, when planning your wedding ceremony and reception, never seem to end. Not only are you expected to find the perfect wedding musicians you also need to choose the list of songs that you want played throughout the day. Never leave this choice completely up to the Wedding band or wedding DJ, this way you avoid having songs played that will shock grandparents and parents of small children. While you want the guests to dance at the wedding reception and to have fun, you also do not want to create a nightclub type of effect.
