Are you at a bit of a loss when it comes to choosing the perfect songs for your wedding.
Music will play a big part in your wedding so it’s important to give it a bit of thought. My advice is to hire live music, especially for the ceremony. I do a lot of weddings. Live music takes your ceremony to a whole new level. The ambience and emotions that live music evokes is well worth the extra $400.00 to have a harp, guitarist, vocalist or strings.
The perfect music for your wedding
Set the right mood with the right song for the special parts of your wedding day. Be inspired by other couples, rate your favourites or submit a new song.
Easy Weddings is a great sight for all of your wedding needs. They have a page devoted to wedding songs.
From Ceremony songs to cake cutting songs, father and daughter dance songs and anything else that you need.
- Pre-service music: This is the music that sets the tone and style of your wedding day. Make sure that the music is in keeping with your theme. E.G.: Indie, Classical, Modern, Chilled.
- Processional: This is the music that accompanies the walk down the aisle. You’ll need to pick a song for your bridesmaids to walk down the aisle to, and then a song for the bride’s entrance.
- Music for the Signing: At the signing of the register, I need to collect 15 signatures. This usually takes about 5 – 6 min depending on what the photographer wants to do at that moment. Usually you need one signature song with a back up ready to go in case the photos take up a bit of time.
- Recessional: The recessional is like the opposite of the processional — it’s when you walk down the aisle, but the other way. For your big exit, you could go with something more upbeat because the pressure is off. (source)
