Choosing the music that will be played during the Wedding ceremony, as well as the Wedding Reception is always listed far down on a Bride's to do list. It rarely finds its way to the top 10 on an individual list or on a list in a Bride's Wedding planner. Yet there is little else that will set the mood and feel of your entire Wedding than the music. A Wedding with the right music can have no flowers or decorations and will be thought of and long remembered as being beautiful and touching. Yet, the wrong music will leave the most majestic event lacking.
Choosing the music for your special day should receive more care than what some Bride's Wedding Planners would have you believe. Just cross it out where it lies in your list and put it somewhere in the top 10, above picking your bridesmaids, flowers, photographer, and cake. It is that important and it should be given careful consideration.
Even though it is so important, it is not a difficult task. If you don't feel you are up for the task at hand, consult with experts. Contact a music department in a local college for suggestions. Look up on the Internet for the music used in the Weddings in decades past when pomp and circumstance were more the norm. Ask your clergy and of course people in your family. Asking your parents or grandparents as well as those of the Groom can result in special songs that will honor them as well as set a beautiful tone for your day. A librarian can also be a great resource in helping you to gather possible music and song choices.
When it comes to the reception music, let your fun and easy side be the guide. This is a major celebration, a time for joy, dancing, and rejoicing. Consider for you what music gives you the feeling of a carefree and joyous day. Then let that guide you in picking music or a live band. By putting the decision to pick your music at the top of your list you will not be rushed to decide on a band or dj, and you will not find yourself having missed out on your favorite because they are already booked.
