1/1/1970 - Ideas to Personalise Your Wedding Ceremony
Choosing a wedding theme should be one of the primary things on your to-do list. It helps organize all your other ideas and helps limit your options so that you won't be flying blind, grasping how to tie everything together in the end. There are many ways how to choose wedding music a wedding theme. You can either do it yourself or with a wedding coordinator. The most important factor is that it captures both you and your partner's personalities. Here are a few general ways on how to choose your wedding theme.
Selecting ceremony and reception musicians should be high priority for you after you have reserved your ceremony and reception sites. Be sure to check on reception site rules and restrictions for music before reserving your site. One couple whose wedding I attended was forced to end the dancing at their reception early because the hotel enforced a "quiet" rule after 9pm. Unfortunately the couple was not aware of that restriction when they booked the musicians for the evening.
Jazz musicians are unique among entertainers because they can adapt to suit many different genres and styles, and because they play from memory and not by reading sheet music, they have thousands of songs in their repertoire. This saves money for couples because they can use the same band all through the day so they don't have to hire other musicians for different aspects such as a string quartet for the ceremony, or a DJ. The jazz musicians can do the wedding ceremony too, and are perfect for dancing.
During the reception, here is where you can truly compile a playlist with your choice of songs, just be mindful of the tone, and the softness or loudness of the music. During the cutting of the cake, play a more upbeat song. Sometimes a friend or the bride/groom is able to write a song for the wedding bands wedding. The first dance is the best time to play this music. You can have another friend or a wedding singer sing this live for you for a more dramatic effect.
Equally important is the elegance of the exit music at a royal wedding. Playing selections from a rock band as the bride and groom exit is not appropriate at a royal wedding. If no song can be found to accent the event, brides should consider having an exit without music. Although walking out to the applause of guests is not the best exit, it is better than playing an inappropriate song. Since it is the end of the ceremony and some guests choose not to stay for the reception, playing the wrong song at the end of the event may tarnish the bride and groom's reputation.
