Ceremony wedding music
Your wedding day is fast approaching. It’s hard to believe that the planning is almost over. You have your dress, the venue, the flowers, the cake and all the invitations have been sent. Now it’s time to pick the ceremony wedding music for your ceremony and reception. With the birth of You Tube, brides are getting more creative in the music that they choose for their ceremony. In the 90’s, the selections were limited to traditional classics like Canon in D by Pachelbel or the Bridal Chorus by Wagner. Now there are groups like Vitamin String Quartet, and The Piano Guys who produce remakes of popular ceremony wedding music in classical form.
Most couples have a good idea of the music they want played for their special dances and reception but have a tough time deciding on the ceremony music. Are you going to stay traditional and play classical instrumental music as guests arrive and are seated for the ceremony? Maybe you would prefer a mix of modern love songs. The idea is to be true to your personality. You will need specials songs for seating the mothers, the processional for bridesmaids, the bride’s entrance, and the recessional for you and your new husband to leave the altar.
The reception is the culmination of a beautiful wedding day. Be sure to have all your guests in mind when choosing the music for your reception. Couples today will ask their guests to send in song requests with their invitation RSVP. This will allow you to play your family’s favorites during the cocktail and dinner. This is where your DJ professional can help you plan the music for your reception. Your first dance song should be something that is special to you as a couple. Once the dancing begins, it’s important that your DJ plays a variety of music that gets all of your guests involved in the party. And don’t forget to include some slow songs. After all, it’s a celebration of Love!
