The music requires as much planning as other aspects of your wedding such as selecting the right flowers or the wedding cake. Don’t leave your music selections to the last minute. A word of caution – depending on the type of wedding you’re having some celebrants my insist on religious songs during the wedding – you may well just have to respect that and make your decisions on that basis
Matching the Music to your Wedding
What kind of wedding are you having? Music for a formal wedding will be much different to the music for a casual wedding or even a beach wedding. Take the time to think of the type of wedding you’re having and the type of music that you’d like to hear at it.
When picking the music for your wedding
Bear in mind that musical choices are subjective – you have to make sure that you’re happy with the selections. As this is the case you can have someone else go out and find the music for your wedding but at the end of the day you have to listen to it and make sure that you comfortable with the selections. A helpful guide is that it helps to pick music that you genuinely like rather than music you think you “must have”. Do you think you will listen to music long after the wedding is over?
Try before you Buy
If you see a CD in the shop or online make sure that you listen to it first before buying. The songs may be the ones you like but make sure you like the rendition on the CD. You may find that the song is being performed by a different singer, band, or orchestra than you were expecting.
Compilations can be useful
Buying a few CDs can give you a good idea of the music you would actually want at your wedding – you may come across songs that you hadn’t heard before or had forgotten about. Some wedding music CDs come with a guide that breaks down each part of the ceremony giving you the opportunity to select the music that you want to use from the prelude to the postlude and everything in-between.
