Music has the power to create a special ambience for any situation. It’s up to you what kind of mood you want to create at your wedding. Perhaps you want to set a romantic mood with a song that played on the day you met your partner, or a fun mood with music you both sing along to. You could even choose a jazz band for a particularly classy vibe! The choice is yours.
So what kind of music should you choose for your wedding? Here are some tips to help you choose the right song for your big day.
Before you choose the music for your wedding day, try to ask yourself the following questions:
· How many songs will you need?
· Which moments of the ceremony will need music?
· What kind of mood do you want to create?
You will want to select music for three key moments: your walk down the aisle, your first dance, and your exit as a couple.
At the moment you will also want to choose 2-3 songs during the signing of your marriage licence. These can be any songs personal to you, its really to avoid the silence during this part. However, soon registrars will be taking your marriage licence online and eventually the singing of the registrar will be no more, but for now, you must consider this .
Stick to planning for those moments – your DJ or band will handle the rest.
Check that the selected song is appropriate for your venue
Some places of worship have strict rules about the kind of music they allow to be played. Some may not allow religious music, for example, and may only allow hymns. If you are getting married at a place of worship, enquire about their music requirements before you decide.
On the other hand, some places of worship may allow you to select music without lyrics. In that case, you can play the instrumental parts of your chosen song instead.
