Reception Music Ideas

Music can be a big part of your wedding reception. And even if you don't have strong opinions on the type of music you want played at your reception, there are a few formalities where song choice is totally up to you. You can choose meaningful songs, or songs that reflect you and your new spouse, or just fun songs. For some inspiration, here are the songs the married ladies of Proud to Plan used for formalities at our receptions.
