More Music! (Wedding Edition! Part 3)

More Music! (Wedding Edition! Part 3)

Alright, folks! It's time to get serious about these wedding playlists! So far we've covered our pre-ceremony and processional playlists.

Now it's time to share our Cocktail Hour playlist! 

We didn't want anything too over the top just yet, but we did want subtle, upbeat music to get our guests relaxed, chipper, and into party mode. 

We tried to find a nice balance of popular tunes, meaningful songs, and lovey-dovey ditties. We even threw a few "oldies" in there for good measure. We ended up with over 2 hours of music on this playlist, so we just put it on shuffle and let Spotify do the choosing. 

 Check out our picks below!
