Choosing your ceremony music is one of the most enjoyable and exciting tasks when it comes to planning your wedding! But maybe you’re not sure where to start! Should you try to find music which ties in with your theme? Should you look for a specific style of music? Should you choose songs which everyone will know? Or should you go for something completely different? The options are endless! But this essential guide will make your journey to the big day a lot easier! It includes my top three tips on how to plan the perfect playlist and it just takes three minutes to read! So scroll down to find out how to create a wedding soundtrack with wow factor!
1 – Make It Personal
One of the most important things to remember about your wedding music is that it can be as unique as you! So my best advice to anyone planning their wedding ceremony is to choose songs which have a special meaning for you and your partner, to help make your day even more personal. It could be a song from a movie you both love or a song which reminds you of your first date or even a song which brings back memories of a loved one. There are lots of great opportunities to feature your favourite songs and create the perfect soundtrack to your special day! So when it comes to your wedding music, be inspired, be creative and be unique!
2 – Make It Memorable
Believe it or not, there was a time when ‘Here Comes The Bride’ was the only contender for walking down the aisle! But thankfully nowadays there are endless options for Processionals and the only limit is your imagination! So my advice is to choose songs which you’ll always remember and which will bring back happy memories every time you hear them! One of my past brides sent me this lovely message after her wedding – ‘Thank you so much for being part of our big day. I don’t remember much, it all went by in such a hurry, but I do remember standing outside the room and hearing our entrance song and walking down the aisle to it, something that will stay with me forever.’ So don’t underestimate the power of music when it comes to creating wonderful memories!
3 – Make It Enjoyable
Trust me when I say that your wedding music is one of the most fun (and least stressful!) tasks when it comes to planning your big day! The secret is not only to find the right musician, but to find music which you both love and which will make you smile as soon as you hear it! Whether it’s something fun and quirky, soulful and romantic, enchanting and magical or even a spectacular surprise for your other half, you can make your music one of the most enjoyable and exciting experiences of your wedding, both during the planning stages and also on the day itself! So find the songs which make your heart sing and let your musician bring your ideas to life!
