The Savannah Southern Charm Wedding Cocktail Hour Playlist

For our 39th installment in the wedding cocktail hour playlist series, we travel south to Savannah, Georgia. Historic Savannah is an immensely popular location for destination weddings. According to The Knot's 2013 Wedding Statistics study, 41% of Savannah's weddings are casual in style, the highest percentage of any major market in the U.S.

In this blog, we spoke to Cindy Brown, co-owner with her husband Jeff Brown, of All About You Entertainment, Savannah and Hilton Head Island's premier wedding DJ entertainment company. Cindy describes the imagery of a local wedding - "It just doesn’t get more southern than this. Summertime lasts a little longer in Savannah. Get ready for a wedding on the back river of a plantation home, with the Spanish moss blowing gently in the breeze. When the ceremony is over, meander over to the tent to enjoy the soft musical soundtrack while sipping on a signature drink of a Sweet Tea Vodka Lemonade Mojito."

The cocktail hour playlist of twenty songs that follows was compiled by Cindy and the staff of All About You Entertainment. To learn more about their award-winning Savannah wedding DJ entertainment services visit
