2022 Music Trends: Bridgerton, Harry Styles, 90s Throwbacks, Movie Music, & More

We are only halfway through our wedding season and have had so many new requests that I've had to update the library for almost every wedding (That's at least 40 times so far!)


I'm loving the new direction that wedding trends are taking: Every couple and wedding is unique, so of course their entertainment should be too! This season alone, we've performed for micro weddings, large ballroom weddings, rustic barn weddings, home weddings, beach weddings, mansion weddings, and even for royalty*!

*Actually, I think the technical term is nobility. We performed for the British Consulate for the Queen's Jubilee. I'll double-check this later 😉


Having performed for so many different types of crowds gives us unique insight into what works and what doesn't, so we wow your guests the whole time.


What's on trend?

Bridgeton-style pop is in as are movie themes, throwbacks, and even jazz. Our couples love a variety of music and so we give them the chance to mix things up, keeping it fresh and fun. I notice that couples like

to include more sentimental favorites in their prelude (What does that mean? I'll tell you!) and ceremony music and then to get the party rocking at cocktail hour.


These songs have just been added to the library in 2022.
