The music for your wedding is always something you don’t think about at first but it is still an important part for your big day.
First think about the music for your ceremony. You have music to walk down the aisle to (Processional), signing of the register, then the recessional.
String quartets and harpists are a really popular choice for ceremonies as they add that touch of elegance. Here’s some popular choices for ceremonies if you want something classical
Bridal March from Lohengrin
Hornpipe from Abdelazar
Air from the Water Music
Hornpipe from the Water Music
Air for the G string
If you want something more personal, there is nothing stopping you choosing your own songs and put them on a CD. Just make sure your wedding coordinator knows the order of songs.
Once you have chosen for your ceremony, you then need to plan if you are having music for your wedding breakfast. Some couples have the string quartet or harpist again but some couples are happy with no music.
The evening reception is the last part of your day so you want it to be perfect. Having a live band is a real good way to get people up to dance and get into the party mood. A Lot of couples book a live band for an hour or so then have the disco to follow. Your wedding ceremony can provide the disco or recommend the best one.
The last and most important piece of music you will ever choose is for your first dance. I’m sure you don’t need my help with that.
