Nothing can better evoke a feeling than music. It can set the tone and ambiance of a setting. We all know what music can do for a movie scene so consider music at an event as equally powerful. Picture everyone gathered at your wedding and rather than everyone hearing a song that will likely be chosen by many other brides why not have a custom written wedding song all your own. Imagine a custom song for walking down the aisle, another for when the mothers enter the Chapel and another for the first dance between bride and groom. What a touching moment it would be for the bride’s dance with her father to have background music that recalls key moments from childhood? There wouldn’t be a dry eye among the guests.
As brides seek to make their wedding days more personal and emotionally filled it is not surprising that there are those seeking custom written wedding songs. It is in fact the new “in” for weddings. The custom written songs could then be replayed on anniversaries and passed along to future generations for their own weddings.
The good news is that such a special feature of a wedding is affordable to almost any bride. Custom written songs can be written and set to existing music or both the words and music can be original. Of course words are optional and sometimes music is stirring enough to stand on its own. There are many professional song writers that are available for commissioned work including members of the CAISO band.
Song writers do their best without pressure of fast approaching deadlines so plan ahead if you want customized songs for your wedding. Many song writers will provide you with hand written lyrics on printed music sheets for framing. You can always have the lyrics and music professionally written by someone with exquisite handwriting for a really special framed item. Contacting local music departments of colleges will offer you talented songwriters. Also consider coffee houses that have “open mic” nights as they will have sources that could be helpful and many church music directors will know who you could contact for songwriting services. With the Internet you are not limited to your area and could find someone in your native family land to write the song or someone from the town in which the couple met to write the song. There are many possibilities to make the song not only unique but also relevant to the couple’s history.
