I recently found a wonderful website that would be great for anyone planning an event that involves music! Songvote.com allows people to create a free account, make a “contest” for the celebration, and have your friends and family nominate and vote on the various song selections. After the voting has concluded, you will be emailed a list of the songs you picked, along with a link to iTunes or Amazon to purchase them.
My first thought was how awesome it would be to use this tool when you are planning a wedding! If you’re like most couples, you might be struggling with which songs to pick that will get guests excited and dancing, especially since there is a limited amount of time for the reception. Or, you may have vastly different musical tastes from your significant other. This could be a fun way to get your guests involved in the celebration, have songs you know everyone will like and dance to, and a way to provide some “must have” songs for your DJ.
