Wedding Music for a Beach Event – What Songs Should You Include?

Are you planning a beautiful summertime wedding at a seaside destination? This is a great way to ensure that everyone you invite for your big day has a really great time. A seaside theme wedding is always a great deal of fun, especially since you can go wild with the decoration, menu and entertainment. Think tikis, fresh seafood, pina coladas, colorful banners and umbrellas. Besides, the wedding music that goes along with this theme is also great to listen and dance to. It is no surprise that beach weddings are becoming extremely popular during the summers.

When you are planning a wedding in a seaside destination you can choose to go with a Caribbean theme or even a Polynesian or Hawaiian theme. Another option is a California surfer theme. If yours is a destination wedding then you’ll easily be able to locate a band locally. Reggae and calypso are always great to dance to, but you can also opt for plenty of international favorites that you can be sure your guests will love.

There are plenty of songs that are perfectly evocative of a beach or seaside event. The Beach Boys are responsible for some of the best known of them all. Songs like Kokomo, Catch a Wave, Surfin’ USA, Good Vibrations, Dance Dance Dance, The Little Old Lady From Pasadena and I Get Around are a wonderful choice because of their laid back surfer vibe. Your guests will feel totally relaxed and entertained listening to your wedding music if your band plays some songs from this ever popular band.

Another song that will go perfectly well with the seaside theme is Under the Boardwalk by The Drifters. Your guests will also love dancing to foot-tapping numbers with a summer feel such as Walkin’ on Sunshine by Katrina and the Waves, Summer Lovin from Grease, Soak Up The Sun by Sheryl Crow. Summertime by Gershwin and Gershwin is also an all-time favorite at these weddings.

Make sure that you have a detailed discussion with your band regarding the wedding music for your big day. Ask them for suggestions just in case you have missed out on something important. You need to plan things well, perhaps including a DJ to play music when the band takes a break, so that there isn’t ever a break in the entertainment. Your guests will go back feeling that you have taken great pains to ensure that they have a good time.
