{Reception Inspiration} Dancing Through The Decades!

After a meeting with the oh-so talented and energetic Snyder Entertainment team, we were inspired to do a blog focused on having a reception that literally gets your guests dancing through the decades! Basically, what this means is, you can devote part (or all) of your reception to music from specific decades. This type of reception truly reaches your entire guest list, and invites everyone to join the dance floor to their favorite songs! Ashley #2 is the music pro here in the studio, so here’s the list we put together for our “Dance through the Decades.” Enjoy!
