Norwalk, CT (PRWEB) September 24, 2012
In its first annual wedding entertainment survey, GigMasters—the largest wedding and event entertainment booking service—found that despite popular belief, only 8% of couples’ first dance songs had been “their song” before the wedding. Most couples (40%) chose the song together specifically for the first dance of their wedding. The survey, which polled nearly 800 respondents (70% brides), is the first wedding survey specific to entertainment trends, choices and concerns. To date, over 60,000 couples have used GigMasters to book wedding entertainment on http://www.gigmasters.com.
“Because of our unique, direct contact with couples and entertainers, we notice trend changes in wedding entertainment traditions first,“ says Marta Segal Block, GigMasters’ Editorial Director. “This survey furthers our knowledge of how couples feel and think about entertainment for the big day.” More findings from the survey include:
First Dance Song Choice Not Like “In The Movies”
“We hear from couples who say they feel like they’re not romantic because they don’t have ‘a song,” says Block. “But the reality is, most couples don’t—that’s a movie thing! In real life, picking your wedding song is just one of the wedding tasks that helps you learn how to work together and compromise.”
