In Singapore, romantic ballads seem to be the preferred song genres for weddings, with familiar hits from well-known crooners such as Christina Perri’s A Thousand Years, Adele’s Make You Feel My Love rounding up the top three besides Legend’s hit love song.
Wedding planner Mindy Weiss, whose clients include Channing Tatum, Gwen Stefani, Heidi Klum and Ellen DeGeneres, said “The music is always a very big priority for all my clients when we’re planning their wedding. They choose the soundtrack based on personal moments they’ve shared together, keeping in mind what their guests will like, as well as make sure there is a good mix of golden oldies and modern hits to keep people on the dance floor all night long.”
“Weddings are one of life’s most important milestones and often calls for a lavish celebration in Singapore. Mindy’s insights illustrated the significance of music for her clients’ big day. Not only does music have the power to tell the story of the newlyweds’ relationship, it also sets the celebratory mood for guests and encourages them to strut their stuff on the stage,” said Sunita Kaur, Managing Director, Spotify Asia.
