Wedding Trends to Watch in 2018!

With another year in the books, we're starting to see an influx of new wedding trends for 2018! Take a look at three of our absolute favorites!

Unexpected Entertainment


As weddings mold and change over time, we're seeing more and more weddings focus on making memories last with interactive elements for guests. One of our favorites that we can TOTALLY get on board with is unexpected entertainment options! Instead of hiring just a DJ or band, a lot of couples are bringing in entertainment like caricature artists and line dancing classes! We love when couples get to personalize their wedding to make it their own fun style. 


Lounge Areas and Relaxed Seating

Lounges have become less and less formal, and therefore more popular with weddings in the past few years. They can be used for cocktail hour, area during your reception that's laid back, or even just to fill space if your venue is a little bit too large!


Celestial Themes


Couples are literally seeing stars on their wedding days! So many elements including the sun, moon, stars, or even a general space theme are popping up at weddings everywhere - we love how unique these ideas are! Entertain! was even able to experience one of our own during Dan and Katie's SOLAR ECLIPSE wedding!

Top 5 Wedding Must Plays of 2017!

We can't believe that another year has come to a close! 2017 was definitely a year of great weddings, amazing friends, and some INCREDIBLE music! We compiled a list of the Top 5 Wedding Must Plays of 2017; these songs are guaranteed to get everyone to join you on the dance floor! 

5. That's What I Like - Bruno Mars

Bruno Mars seems to always release the tracks that make you want to get up and dance! Rolling Stone noted that this song "brings the silky vibes of 12 Play-era R. Kelly into the boom of modern trap." This song also spent 28 weeks on the top ten list, becoming one of the longest runs in the top 10 in Billboard history. Everyone who hears it can't help but start to dance!

4. It's Tricky - RUN-DMC

While not a "new" 2017 song, this PERFECT throwback is a sure bet to get the party going! It's album Raising Hell was one of the first rap albums to enter the mainstream and sell to listers who weren't already familiar with the genre. This is especially fitting because the song explains that rapping isn't as easy as it sounds - "It's tricky to rock a rhyme to rock a rhyme that's right on time."

3. Havana - Camila Cabello

This song is fairly new to the scene, but was an immediate hit, both on the radio and at our events! Even though Blue Ivy had her own thoughts on Camila Cabello, we still love this smash song for its Cuban vibes and amazing beat!

2. Perfect - Ed Sheeran

We have four words for you: PERFECT. FIRST. DANCE. SONG! Ed Sheeran said in an interview that he needed to write the best love song of his career, and did so with "Perfect." He said "I need to do it 100% me, so everyone will listen to that will be like, "Ah! He can actually do it!" We don't care if you're young, old, married, or single - this song is the "perfect" love song for everyone.

1. Finesse - Bruno Mars

Like we said before, Bruno Mars always releases songs that make you want to dance! This song topped Billboard charts, and he recently released the remix above with Cardi B! You can rest assured that every DJ will be playing this jam - so make sure you get out on the dance floor when you hear this hit!

Those are some of our "must plays" for 2017! Your professional DJ should always be up to date on the current AND recurrent songs. They should understand the songs that you really enjoyed growing up, and be able to read their crowd to anticipate the next hit! Our professional DJs at Entertain! have done hundreds of weddings and events, and can play to any type of crowd or age group. If you are looking for an unforgettable party for your wedding then book us today!
