If you are planning your wedding then you won’t need me to tell you that it can be a stressful and daunting task. There are so many things to organise, thing that you didn’t even realise such as choosing the hymns for the ceremony and the menu for the reception. The important thing is that you remember to stamp your personalities on it so that you are able to have the wedding you want, as that really matters is the happiness of the bride and groom on their special day. With that in mind here are some tips for choosing the perfect wedding music for you: -
Take A Look Through Your Music Collections
You should take a break from choosing the floral arrangements in the church and sit down with your partner to take a look through both of your music collections. If you are both into your music and it plays a big role in your lives then choosing the right music for your wedding is a huge decision, after all this is the most important day of your life so you’ll want the soundtrack for it to be just right. You may have very similar tastes in music or your collections may be very different and in that case a compromise is called for.
Think About Where & When You Want Your Music
Obviously you will want music for the disco at the reception but you could also include it in the ceremony. You may have decided not to have your wedding in a church and instead to have it outdoors or even on a beach, in this case having music at the ceremony is important as there are no church organs to set the mood of the occasion. There are so many ways in which you can get creative with your wedding music, such as having someone playing your favourite romantic song on an acoustic guitar or piano as the bride walks down the aisle or a group of choir singers setting the tone with an accapella performance.
Check Out The Local Music Scene
You don’t have to choose the same old DJ or wedding bands that have played at every wedding you’ve ever been to. If you take a bit of time to check out the local music scene then you will find that there are great bands, performers and DJs right on your door step who have their own original material and who would love the opportunity to gain some exposure and of course to earn some cash. If you have some particular songs in mind that you would like them to play then I’m sure that they could learn them for you if required, so don’t choose the mediocre when you could find something really special which will probably end up costing you less.
