Reception – Often musicians can asked to play into the cocktail hour or reception at many weddings, especially those that have the ceremony and reception at the same location. This time can be used to begin the transition to a band or DJ. More contemporary favorites and jazz standards are recommended for this time, or music that is representative of the couple.
