Music During Dinner: Wedding Breakfast Music
If you are looking for entertainment during your daytime wedding celebrations then some live lounge style acoustic music during your wedding breakfast is a perfect option. It works so well because all of your guests are all together in the same space at the same time chatting, having food & drinks & enjoying being part of your day. Live music can brighten & create the atmosphere which you and your guests will all experience & enjoy being part of.
The wedding breakfast is the first time you will have time to stop and pause and take in your day too, so music can be the perfect accompaniment as you relax and have your meal, throw in some of your favorite songs as you enjoy your first meal as a married couple!
As you enter your wedding breakfast room you may be greeted by all your guests applauding & welcoming you into the room as you head towards your seats. Our Wedding Breakfast package offers the option to have a song played as you are announced & enter the room, adding a special & more personal touch to your entrance.
The song for your entrance can be chosen by you, either from our repertoire list or, if it is a special request, then we can learn it especially for you. If there is a phrase, lyric or part of the song that is important to you then we can restructure the song to include this. The song is usually shortened as your entrance & greeting usually lasts around a minute or so – the full version of the song can then be included into the set-list during your meal. Below is a short list of our most popular entrance songs…
- A Thousand Years – Christina Perri
- Better Together – Jack Johnson
- Latch – Sam Smith
- All You Need Is Love – The Beatles
- All of Me – John Legend
- Marry You – Bruno Mars
- Your Song – Ellie Goulding
- Perfect – Ed Sheeran
In our experience a full three course wedding breakfast lasts around two hours, often with speeches following this two hours at the end of the meal. Our wedding breakfast package provides two sets each lasting forty-five minutes – this usually includes around twelve songs per set. There can be an interval between the sets which works well between your courses for guests to top up their drinks. In this interval we can provide background music of some acoustic songs of similar style to our music. If it works better with your timings the sets can be played as a full ninety minute set allowing time at the end of the meal for you & your guests to prepare for speeches.
The wedding breakfast package includes around twenty-four songs, you are welcome to choose all twenty-four of these – not forgetting you can have a special request song learnt just for you too! You will find our set list has been divided up into three sections Laid Back, Romantic & Upbeat.
The Wedding Breakfast is a perfect time to show your musical tastes, it’ll be the first time during the day where you get time to sit and relax without having to be taken for photo’s so you can sit back and enjoy some music! We find when couples hire us for their wedding breakfast they really get the chance to put in their favorite songs, if you’re looking for a laid back feel then we have some great romantic and laid back songs that will be perfect as background music or if you’d like a more livelier feel it’s great to add some upbeat or sing-along songs for between meals or at the end before speeches.
We’ve had some couples choose a selection of 90’s classics with the groom and best man singing along with “Don’t Look Back In Anger” by Oasis, and some couples choosing some classic upbeat songs like “Uptown Funk” and “I Want You Back” to end the wedding breakfast just before speeches.
So you have the freedom to put your stamp on your wedding day! If you prefer we are very happy to choose the perfect set list for you.
During the interval between sets we offer background music through our PA system, if you have a special playlist on your phone or tablet that you would like during this time then we can plug this in for you.
If you are having an outdoor or woodland wedding either with limited access or limited power supply we can provide the wedding breakfast package no problem at all using a portable battery powered sound system.
If you are having an alternative wedding breakfast option, like a pizza oven or hog roast, then we can provide a more relaxed ‘busker’ style service while your guests are moving around getting their food & drinks. This can be offered as a full ninety minute set & is perfect for outdoor festival style weddings with a relaxed laid back atmosphere.
