Wedding ceremonies and receptions will never be complete without music. Filling the air with perfect wedding songs is sure to bring romantic atmosphere during the event, as well as bring out a myriad of emotions from the guests. Wedding music also reflects the couple’s relationship with each other and sets the mood of the event.
With these in mind, it’s safe to say that music is one of the most important elements that you should never forget on your wedding day. Choosing the right songs for such an important event is very crucial and requires careful thinking and selection. To help you out, here are the most important considerations that you need to be aware of when choosing the music for your wedding.
Songs That Fit the Wedding Theme. Choose songs that perfectly match the theme of your wedding. Be it a garden wedding or a beach wedding, make sure to select a song line-up that fit the style of your wedding, from songs that you want to hear during the ceremony to those that you’ll want to use during the reception.
Songs That Matter to You and Your Partner. The songs that you choose should speak about your relationship with each other. Whether they’re your favourite songs or not, make sure they all appeal not just to you but to your partner as well.
Songs Delivered by Great Musicians. In terms of your wedding music, you can be as creative as you can. You can use traditional wedding songs from your favourite artists or you can hire your own group of musicians and have them play your choice of songs. Create a list of your favourite wedding songs and make sure your chosen musician can play all that you have listed.
Songs for Your First Dance as Husband and Wife. This is one of the most important parts of the reception, your first dance as husband and wife. Make sure to choose songs that are meaningful to you and your partner. You can even use your theme song for your first dance. Before your wedding day, practice dancing with your partner to ensure that the beat is not too fast or slow for both of you.
Songs for the Wedding Ceremony. It is important that you talk to a church official before you choose the songs to play during the ceremony. The church may have guidelines on what kinds of songs to play, and it is better that you know about them so you’ll know the right songs to choose.
As soon as you’ve chosen that perfect soundtrack for your wedding day, find time to talk to your DJ or live band or whoever it is in charge of the wedding music. Don’t forget to instruct them which songs to play at what part of the wedding ceremony and reception. Congratulations and best wishes!
