Most couple will prepare some music for the wedding. They will consider the music for both the ceremony and the reception. If you would like to make your wedding more perfect, you should also plan the wedding music in advance.
When the bride is walking down the aisle, one of the most popular music to be play is probably "Here comes the bride". Of course this is only a popular choice. It does not mean that you have to follow what others usually do. In fact, the wedding music can be any kind of music you feel appropriate. As a matter of fact, some couples even choose to play rock music in the big day!
Although there is virtually no limit for you to choose the music, you should consider the issue of etiquette. Traditionally, music is only allowed at the beginning of the ceremony. It has to be a total silence when exchanging the vow. This is not difficult to understand since wedding should be something serious at the end of the day. Of course you may choose to play the music again when the guests leave the venue. The music can also act as a guide for the guests to go to the reception.
Nowadays, music is a must during the reception. Some couples will choose to hire a live band while some others may choose to hire a DJ to play the music. No matter how you make the choice, the whole idea is to heat up the atmosphere and entertain the guests. The music is even more important if you want your guests to stand up and dance!
You will need to discuss with the band or DJ on the music to be played. In fact, this will mainly depend on your wedding theme. If you are going to have a beach wedding, you could have some lovely romantic music playing softly in the Background or a Singer/singers.
Playing pop songs in the reception can also be a good idea if you do not want the wedding to be too formal. Of course you should choose the music based on your preference. There is nothing wrong to choose to play your favorite music during the reception!
Music can certainly make your guests feel good. It can be a catalyst to make the guests to start the dance and enjoy the reception. Remember, the music does not only make your guest feel great, but also make you and your spouse, as well as your family members, feel happy.
