Just like a film's soundtrack, the right song can create or enhance the mood of your wedding day from beginning to end. These are our picks—from totally traditional to dramatically radical, or somewhere in between.
Blame it on the annals of tradition, a lack of information, or a widespread case of bad taste, but reception music has become way too predictable and generic. We checked in with some top wedding musicians and deejays across the country, and asked them to reveal the tunes they're secretly sick of playing, as well as the songs they wish you'd request instead. Use their picks to freshen up your playlist.
