Set the Mood with a Wedding Planning Music Playlist

It’s been a wild ride with wedding planning in 2020. With so many unknowns around weddings now, it can certainly be hard to feel excited about being engaged and celebrating. While I was working on preparing a playlist for a Hudson Valley micro wedding this past week, I thought it might be fun to put together a playlist for couples to listen to while planning a wedding in these difficult times. A little something to boost the mood and get you excited for planning. Have you ever thought about setting the mood with music while working on your wedding planning? Well, let’s give it a try. 


By the way, if you are new around here… I am David Nazario, owner of A Perfect Blend Entertainment. I help couples create fun celebrations with music. I believe music is the universal language that brings people together at weddings. I would love to connect with you and talk about your wedding celebration if you are having a wedding in the New York, New Jersey, or Connecticut area.  You can read more about me here, but without further ado, let’s jump right into that music playlist I promised you to set the mood for planning your wedding. I put together a step by step process for you to follow along with a custom playlist. 

Download or Sign in to Spotify

Download the Spotify app to your phone or sign up on your computer if you don’t already have it installed.  You can listen right on your computer or pull out that Bluetooth speaker to connect to your phone. 

Grab Our Custom Playlist

Below you’ll find links to two custom playlists created just for you.

Make sure to grab your fiance before you start planning. Our playlist is sure to put you in the mood to dance to a few songs in between searching for the perfect wedding venue. 

Or Customize Your Own Playlist

If you would rather create your own custom mix here are our favorite upbeat songs to get you started with your own list.

The Wedding Planning Music Playlist
