Your evening reception is one of the most important parts of your day.

It is a big part of what you and your guests will remember and is well worth investing in.

Simon’s aim is to work with you to create an evening filled with memorable moments and classic photo opportunities. He enjoys getting to know the characters in your wedding party and encourages you to choose songs which may have special meaning to your friends or family.

Simon always enjoys performing at wedding receptions as it is an extra special occasion and everybody is looking to enjoy themselves. He loves to involve the guests where possible, be it through serenading, dancing, or inviting them to sing, and the excitement and energy of the day really makes for a special show.

Simon will work together with you to make sure that the evening fits perfectly with the rest of your day. Couples often ask him to perform a selection of swing & easy listening numbers for the first set while guests are arriving and then a dancy/party set later in the evening to combine with a disco.

The key to a successful themed wedding is consistency: the dress, the flowers, the food and yes, the music are all things to consider when creating a certain look or atmosphere. Expert wedding DJ, Mark van den Berg of Mighty Fine Entertainment is on hand to let us in on his top tips for creating the soundtrack to a themed wedding.

Consider whether themed music is viable all night:

Every couple is different and so every themed wedding is different. For example, if you’re having a goth wedding, it may be a bit of a stretch to expect your nan to go nuts for Marylin Manson for an entire evening. However, a sixties-themed wedding could easily lay the foundations for a playlist to bridge the generational gap and keep people on their feet all night.

Timing is everything:

A really great DJ will have a large music collection and the knowledge to match, and will undoubtedly be able to put together a themed playlist of any kind. However, while it’s important that the music is consistent with your theme to create the right ambiance, don’t lose sight of the fact that you’re throwing a party – and people will want to get up and dance to tunes that they know.

With that in mind, consider the timing of your themed music. For example, have your themed playlist set the mood for your drinks reception and dinner, and include aspects of it in your evening party while still playing the classics that people will want to jump out of their seats for.

Get people involved:

If you feel very strongly that you only want music from a certain theme or era at your wedding, bear in mind that it may not be everyone’s cup of tea. One way to get everyone involved could be to teach them a dance or have someone leading the dancing for that particular theme. For example, if you’re having a Jewish wedding, somebody could lead the circle dance (or “hora”), if you’re having a twenties-inspired wedding, bring in a dance teacher to show people how to do the Charleston. If your theme or music is very niche or is unfamiliar to some, then make the extra effort to get them up and dancing so nobody has an excuse to sit out.

Don’t be afraid to ask for what you want:

Your DJ is there to help create your dream day. Any experienced DJ will have had every request under the sun. For example, at Mighty Fine Entertainment, we’ve set up specific playlists for a huge variety of weddings, from a Cockney playlist for a London couple to specific 60s, 70s 80s and 90s lists as well as indie, old school house, 20s & 30s swing, reggae, and the list goes on. A great DJ will know just how to work with you to incorporate your themed music into the evening and still create a great party atmosphere, so do it your way and dance the night away.
