Your music selection is one of the easiest ways to make your Wedding Ceremony and Wedding Reception unique, as well as an extension of you. It creates an atmosphere, an ambiance. Nothing expresses your personality better than the choice you make in music. By selecting the music that suits both you and your husband-to-be, you'll reflect your personalities, thereby personalizing your event!
WEDDING CEREMONY MUSIC
The ATTACHED is representative of Classical Music Selection that can be used for the Order of Service. Please know, again, that more contemporary music is also available and might be more in the spirit of what you a looking for. This is an element that the WeDo Services Director will be happy to help you with. But, don't underestimate the inportant value of sound whether it be live or electronically played. There are several considerations with regard to your music selections, as it relates to the location. Traditional Churches can often have restrictions. All of these factors should be discussed and selected with the consideration of your WeDo Officiant and Clergy.
WEDDING RECEPTION MUSIC
The tone of your reception will be set by your choice in music. As a general rule, the music should start out soft and slow, as background to the beginning of your reception. The tempo can pick up after the meal has been served, cuing everyone to dance and mingle. Slowing down your music will signal the end of the festivities.
The challenge you will face is providing something for everyone, nothing too bland or boring, but enjoyable for everyone with a little of your taste and style thrown in. You may want to have a play list of all your favorite songs. These might include a mix of classical, jazz, big band, rock and roll, oldies, country and maybe even some swing (very popular today). Submit this list to your WeDo Services recommended DJ or bandleader. Consult him or her for suggestions on songs and musical styles to please all your guests. Your WeDo Services coordinator will help you develop your ITINERARY . . . a most important piece for the overall flow of your celebration. WeDo will be sure to review this list with your DJ or bandleader to determine the timing of announcements like your entrance, the first dance, the cake cutting, and the throwing of your bouquet and garter.
If you need to watch your pennies, music is a good place to start. Professional DJs have very reasonable rates and can also double as your Master of Ceremonies. Also, you might consider using pre recorded music for your ceremony, hiring a smaller band, or having a solo performer.
Choosing the song for your first dance can sometimes be difficult. WeDo Services offers Social Dance Instruction and will even organize chorreography for your first dance experience. Know that the first danc truly sets the tone for the whole evening. Consider consulting your fiancé or friends for ideas. You might browse music stores, ask shop personnel, or just listen to the radio until you find a tune that appeals to you. As a sentimental touch, ask your parents what their first dance song was and use it also!
Music is an important part of your wedding. Don't hesitate to let your personality shine thorough. Think of it as your very own musical celebration, and enjoy!
