Wedding reception music is open to the atmosphere you want to create. Each event during the reception , lighting the oil lamp, cutting the cake, bouquet toss ,couple dance ,etc. should have a special song to be played. Also, think about the different parts of the day . if you're going to have a ceremony, a cocktail hour, and a reception, you may have the chance to create three completely different moods.
After a church ceremony, the couple enter the ballroom, We normally play the wedding march when they arrive. At the time of cutting the cake we play "congratulations" or a song selected by the couple prior to the function. And then we play gentle background music when the guests arrive and during the initial photography sessions.
When the couple is seated we begin to sing after plying some instrumental music. After the ceremony, you might want to keep your guests entertained while the wedding party is busy with the photographer. So the 1 St session would be soft mix of songs in Sinhala, English & Hindi. During the cocktail hour, and while meals are being served our music will take a sentimental type. When the couple arrives to the main hall ,dressed up for going away ,we make fanfare music to draw others attention to them. Then we invite the couple to the dancing floor & play a suitable English song which falls on the waltz beat, which will suit for a Ball-Room also. At the same time the guests will be invited to join the couple in dancing & then we gradually increase the tempo & continue up to nonstop baila songs.
When the couple is leaving for their honeymoon we play songs wishing them luck for a golden future.
However the above arrangement could be changed according to the requirements of the couple.
