Wedding planner Mindy Weiss, whose clients include Channing Tatum, Gwen Stefani, Heidi Klum and Ellen DeGeneres, commented:

‘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.’

Angela Watts, VP, Global Communications at Spotify, commented:

“Weddings are one of the most popular life events we see playlists created for on Spotify, and Mindy’s insights into how her clients choose music for their big day reinforces how important a part music plays. Not only does music have the power to tell the story of a couple’s relationship, it also – very importantly – encourages guests to get onto the dancefloor and strut their stuff.”
