Music Tips
  • If you are having your ceremony in a church, be sure to check with the facility coordinator as some churches have stipulations on the type of music that can be played in the church.
  • No matter where you hold your ceremony, be sure to ask your music provider or facility coordinator about possibly having a microphone set up nearby during your vows. No one likes to be at a wedding where they can't hear the vows.
  • Why not try something different -when sending out the wedding invitations ask the guest to write their favorite song on the back on the RSVP card.
    Sifting through the cards will take a little time but you have to check anyway to see who can or can not make it to your wedding. Take note of everyone's favorite tune and have your music entertainer play a compilation of melodies of their chosen favorites.
  • The number of songs you need to choose, largely depends on how formal your wedding day will be. For instance, a simple garden wedding won't require as many songs as a formal wedding in a Catholic Church.
  • There are usually six different musical movements in the typical wedding ceremony: the prelude/ pre-ceremony music  (the time before the wedding starts, while your guests are being seated, the processional (the seating of the mother's, the bridal party the bride's entrance), the unity candle ceremony, the signing of the Register (if you choose to sign it during the ceremony), the recessional (everyone in the bridal party and family exit), and the postlude (the guests' exit).
  • Whether you hire a DJ or band, be clear about your likes and especially your dislikes. No "Electric Slide" or "Macarena"? Make it known — in writing.
  • Think about the kind of feel you want your reception to have. Is it a high-energy party? Go heavy on the up-tempo tunes. Want a dreamier, more romantic tone? Include your favorite love songs from a variety of decades.
  • It's usually impossible to please everybody, but music is one area where you can try. Know that your aunt and uncle love salsa dancing? Ask them to recommend a few tunes — and make sure they're willing to show off their moves.
  • Have a song that you absolutely must have at your wedding — but fear it could baffle or even offend older relatives? Save it for late in the evening, when most of the remaining revelers will be your friends.

Be sure to ask your music provider for a complete list of moments that you will need to select music for and song suggestions.
