1950’s

The 50’s were all about rock and roll, jazz, and honky-tonk music. 50’s music pushed boundaries and cultural shifts allowed for the rise of popular heartthrobs like Elvis Presley. For a bit of a vintage flair that all generations will love, keep these songs in mind:

During the 60’s, genres such as R&B, Soul, DooWop, and beach-style music grew incredibly popular. The British Invasion led to the popularity of bands such as The Beatles, who are still extremely popular today. The 60’s was all about Motown, Woodstock, and the blending of all different cultures in art. Keep these songs in mind for your wedding playlist:
