How to Choose Your Wedding Ceremony Music
Your wedding day not only consists of meaningful vows, delicious food, and gorgeous décor, but music too! It all begins was your guests take their seats before your ceremony, and ends as you make your exit at the end of the night as newlywed husband and wife.
With many aspects of your big day that incorporate music, such as your ceremony, it may seem overwhelming to know just how to plan yours.
There are quite a few moments within your wedding ceremony where you have the opportunity to incorporate music. That’s why, here at DJ Brock Weddings, we have gathered some tips to assist you in choosing your wedding ceremony music. If you are interested in learning more, be sure to continue reading:
- The prelude. Before your ceremony begins, your guests will take their seats, which is considered the prelude. For this moment, which usually lasts anywhere from 20 to 45 minutes, you should consider playing light, ambient music, primarily with no lyrics, to really set a relaxing and welcoming atmosphere.
- The processional. After your guests have all been seated and your ceremony is set to begin, your processional will take place. Your bridal party will make their way down the aisle, ahead of the bride. When choosing a song for your processional, you can get quite creative. Whether you choose something traditional, such as Canon in D by Pachelbel or a more modern, present day song, know that something more soft and slow would be best appropriate.
- Bride’s entrance. Walking down the aisle as a bride is your moment to shine! Just as your processional, you can be unique with your song chioce, rather than choosing the traditional “Wedding March”. A lot of couples today are choosing songs such as Bittersweet Symphony by The Verve or A Thousand Years by Christina Perri.
- Recessional. You did it! You have officially tied the knot and it is time to celebrate. While prior to your ceremony most likely consisted of slower songs, this is your time to take it up a notch and choose something upbeat and fun to represent yourselves as the new Mr. & Mrs.
While your reception will be where the fun of your wedding occurs, your ceremony will truly be the most important part of your big day. With the right music, you can present the best ambience for your wedding.
