A wedding is a very important event in a couple’s life. It signifies the start of their life from two individuals into one. It is especially important, if it’s your own wedding. That is why making it perfect is top priority, especially if you really intend to make it a once in a lifetime event. Aside from the elegant gowns, food, decorations and themes, one thing that you also need to prepare is the music for your very special day.
In choosing the wedding music to have for your day, the first thing that you have to consider is the song that you will be playing as the guests arrived in the designated wedding venue. This is also called as the prelude melody. Why is this important? It is important because it serves as the mood setter or the introduction as your guests arrive. It is important that you choose a type of music which can lighten up the atmosphere and make your guests feel at ease and relaxed.
The next part of the wedding where you need to have music ready as well is when the bride and the bridal party arrive at the wedding venue. This is also known as the processional melody. During this event, the music that should be played should be solemn. Also, it should be different from the prelude melody to denote that the ceremony is about to start and make the guests aware about this.
After the processional melody, it is followed by the music that is played as the bride walks down the aisle. Although there is a traditional tune in which is often being played for the bride’s march, you can opt to use another music or song. If you don’t feel like using the traditional tune, then you should find one that you think suits best for the occasion.
In order for you to have the best wedding music for the different parts of your wedding day, there are things that you should consider doing. First is the music selection. You’ll need to choose different songs that will be played on your wedding day. You should create a list of songs that you want to be played within the different parts of your wedding.
There are times when you may get confused which songs you’d like to be played or in which part do you want them to be played. During times like this, professionals are quite helpful. Wedding coordinators may not be able to choose the songs that you’d like, but they can give you valuable suggestions on when to have them played. Also, if you are planning to have your songs played by professional musicians, you should pick them out early on. This can allow them to practice the songs that you have chosen and how they can deliver it perfectly during your wedding day.
Keep in mind that the songs or music that you select should flow smoothly through the different parts in the wedding. You should also remember to have fun when choosing the right kind of songs and music for your wedding day.
