The ultimate function band setlist for your wedding, party or event. Complete with top tips for the UK’s leading live musicians.
Choosing the tunes to play at your wedding is no easy task. You need the perfect mix of modern day hits, singalong classics and enough disco to get Grandma on the dancefloor.
Here we share the only wedding band playlist you’ll ever need for your special day.
How to create the perfect function band setlist
First things first. How do you go about choosing the perfect songs for your wedding? Well, it all depends on you… and your crowd. Are you a huge fan of the 80s? Can’t live without a bit of Lionel? Only here for a bit of rock ‘n’ roll?
Playing your favourite tunes is a good place to start but don’t forget to consider your guests’ preferences. Your beloved drum and bass album might make you happy but is unlikely to get the older crowd on the dancefloor. Instead, pick a mix of songs from across the decades, including contemporary hits that everybody knows.
Is choosing your wedding setlist adding more stress to your already long to do list?
At HD Events, we believe no event should be the same. That’s why our premium roster of wedding bands are always tailored to you. They’ll work with you to create your ultimate personalised playlist, complete with a live performance of your chosen first dance.
