The best wedding songs for your Big Day!

September 7, 2017

The big day is getting closer and you've got so much things to organize left!

Let  "Punta Cana Live Music" help you at least for the musical part of your wedding.

There are so much romantic or dancing songs, you love or too many choices and you feel like a bit lost, one day you think about one song and the day after you fall in love with an other one that you just listen in your car... 

I really hope that this guide of the most "asked" wedding songs, will support you to chose the playlist of your Big Day in Punta Cana!

For each different moment of your celebration, I suggest some songs that the brides use to request to the musicians of Punta Cana Live Music. From the Prelude songs before the ceremony to the last Dance songs of your reception, I give you some example of themes that would fit well with the special moment but then feel free to do YOUR song list.

And of course, all depends of your musical taste...
