How to Create the Perfect Country Wedding Album

You'll have to make several choices about music when you're planning your wedding—possibly even more than you assume. But finding a country song to fit each moment should be a bit intuitive. For example, you will want to avoid choosing anything too fast for when you and your wedding party are making your way down the aisle or a long string of ballads when your guests are ready to really dance.

Once you've got your selections locked in, reach out to your DJ or band to make sure the most important songs are in their repertoire and be ready to make some swaps if need be. If you're sticking only to country wedding songs, you might want to pick an entertainer who specializes in this genre—they'll have likely have helpful suggestions for what to play during each phase of the wedding.

You should also pick songs that feel personally significant to you and your partner, as well as to your loved ones. Remember: It's your day, so don't feel like you need to add something just because it's a song everyone else loves. If it's not your jam, it's not your jam!
