2018 has been a wild ride of a year. We’re coming up on celebrating our 43rd year performing for couples across Texas. We’ve performed at [literally] thousands of events from Weddings, Corporate Events, Quinceaneras, Holiday Parties, and much more. But the type of event that remains dear to our hearts here at Cutting Edge Entertainment is, and I believe always will be, Weddings.

As a couple there you are with your pre wedding checklist, doing your best to figure out “How to Plan a Wedding”. Maybe you have a professional wedding planner. You’re looking for the right wedding venue, the right caterer, the right florist… Then you think to yourself, “Hey, what kind of music do we want to be played? What’s popular right now? Do we go with something new and fresh? Or should we throw it back to (insert whatever your definition of old school is)?” Well, you’re in luck. Here at our company, we keep an active playlist of every single song played at each of our events. Yes, every song.

Confucius is quoted saying “Music produces a kind of pleasure which human nature cannot do without.” I believe that the music someone picks for their first dance as a married couple speaks volumes beyond what they can say individually. It’s one of the requested songs that we encourage the bride and groom to come up with on their own. That dance is your moment, your declaration to the world. No one expects you to remember every song played at your wedding reception. But you will always remember what song you both chose together.
