This necessary segment allows guests to settle in and reconnect while you and your wedding party break away for pictures.  The music played here should starkly contrast that of your ceremony, which is typically sentimental and somber.  It also shouldn't be the same variety as what's scheduled to play during dinner, otherwise guests will end up being subjected to what they may consider to be two hours of elevator music.  Just remember that the tone set here is meant to build into something more.

Many therefore choose to keep cocktail hour lively and uptempo in order to keep dinner selections conversation friendly and in the background, or vice versa.  Specific songs you personally enjoy that may not otherwise fit elsewhere in your reception might easily work here!  Contrastly, during dinner, many opt for piano, string, or acoustic instrumentals, inviting guests to dance to their favorite ballads while dinner is underway. Aside from a choice few,  your playlist for these segments does not need to be incredibly detailed.  You can simply let your host know which type(s) best suit your style or theme and he will fill the time accordingly.
