Choosing the Music to Paint Your Party Theme

Good music is an excellent ingredient for the recipe of a successful party. It has this warm and welcoming vibe that breaks the cold and unfamiliar atmosphere among the attendees. Choosing the right music for your party does not only set up the mood, but allows people to get closer and have fun together as well!

Begin your dream Caviteño party with these tips on choosing the best music to play at such a special day!

Study the theme and music genre

Choose the kind of party you are going to plan and study your chosen concept carefully. Ask these questions when choosing the music:

  • Is it a birthday celebration, a party at work, or an occasion with a touch of Cavite culture?
  • Does the party need a quiet and calm atmosphere or a loud and energetic one?
  • What type of music would fit in this kind of event?

Identify the audience

The success of the party highly depends on the attendees’ feedback. Take note of the attendees and be familiar with their music preference. Caviteños have the culture of “everyone knows everyone,” so this is a great opportunity to get closer to others with the right kind of music!

Look for a variety of playlists

The Internet may be your very best friend because it can present you endless lists of songs classified in all music genres. If you are not too familiar with the type of music for the party, research until you finally end up with a list of your own.

Narrow down your list

It is time to do some proper outlining! After your research, carefully make it simpler and shorter by crossing out what you think are the least suitable songs.

Playlist per segment

A great way to make the most of your party’s music is to provide separate playlists for each part of the event. Prepare a playlist for meals and conversations, another one for games (if there is any), and another one for any kind of presentation or activity included in the program.

Take note of the volume

Some party planners often overlook the significance of the volume. Control on the volume of the music properly to avoid disturbing others outside the venue and make the attendees comfortable enough inside.

Although Cavite is known for its excellent event spaces, there are celebrations that take place on smaller and quieter areas like subdivisions. As a planner, you should be careful enough to not cause trouble to the non-participants of your event.

It is not only the popular songs

A recognizable and famous song is indeed one of the best to put in your party’s playlist, but do not set the limit there. It can also be a good opportunity for people to hear some not-so-popular but good tracks. It will also be fantastic if it can pull some sentimental thoughts from your audience.

Do some testing

Provide some spare time to try out your playlist. Imagine yourself as a part of that audience in that party theme and play the songs you chose. Put yourself in an attendee’s shoes and find out if it feels just right or not. Thorough preparation is the best!
