background music

When we refer to 'background music' at a wedding we are referring to the music before and during dinner inbetween the formalities. We typically play this music a lot softer than say the entrance or dance music and it's just to provide some atmosphere to the room. Feel free to just put down a style of music or give us a few specific artists or albums that you would like played. You don't need to limit yourself to just the commonly selected styles and artists below.
