June 6, 2012

NEW YORK, June 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — As June heralds in the beginning of summer weddings and al-fresco celebrations, new figures released by online music concierge service Songza reveals that brides- and grooms-to-be will collectively spend approx $1.95B on music and DJs for their wedding receptions alone.

With 2.1 million weddings taking place year in the U.S.[1] (over 5,700 weddings a day), coupled with the average spend of $27,021[2] on the ceremony itself, Songza is the perfect solution for couples looking for cost effective ways to create their own, bespoke soundtrack for their special day without feeling the pressure on their wallets.

Free, quick and featuring absolutely no audio ads, Songza allows couples to save the money they would spend on DJs and music, which is just under $1,000[3] and invest it into their well-earned honeymoon or contribution to building a happy future together.

Wedding planners and couples preparing for their nuptials can easily stream their personally curated playlist directly from a laptop, iPhone or iPad into speakers to create their atmosphere of choice, whether it’s for the first dance or just a great party celebration!

Mixing romance with philanthropy, Songza also allows couples to give back. For every visit to http://www.songza.com/good, a donation of 25 cents is made to kiva.org, a non-profit organization with a mission to alleviate poverty.
