Your Wedding Soundtrack


Picking the right music for your wedding is very important in regards to setting the mood and tone for your wedding ceremony and reception. Your wedding ceremony music is critical in moving the service along, and keeping all your friends and family entertained leading up to the Bride’s grand entrance. Every couple is different when it comes to the kind of music they select for their wedding ceremony, but one thing most couples have in common is the order of their playlist. Wedding ceremony playlists tend to be divided into four parts: prelude (background music played as ushers seat guests); the processional (bridal party and bride walk down the aisle); interludes (music played throughout the service); and recessional (played at the exit of the wedding party).

The Wedding Venue and Your Wedding Soundtrack

Your wedding venue can play an important role in creating your wedding ceremony playlist. If you are planning to have your ceremony at a church, you will want to make sure that you contact the music director to have him or her give you a list of songs that are played during worship services, since many churches do not allow secular music inside the sanctuary. If you are going to have your ceremony at any other location, then the sky’s is the limit for selecting a variety of genres of music to be played throughout your ceremony.

You and Your Wedding Soundtrack

As you begin to search for what songs to be played at your wedding ceremony, a good piece of advice would be to pick songs that fit your personality. If “traditional” wedding music is not your thing, why not replace it with something that rings true to you as a couple? An example would be if the both of you have a favorite song have it be played during the “recessional” as you walk down the aisle as husband and wife. Another method is to look back at a wedding that you attended and remember songs that you heard and liked. If there are certain songs that caught your attention, try them and see if they would be an option in your ceremony playlist. Your songs don’t have to be the most popular songs or commonly used, as long as they capture the true love and emotion that the two of you share.

TIP: Whether you select a quartet, professional singer, or Phoenix DJ, remember to make sure you get a signed contract that itemizes your interests. The contract should include the fee that was agreed upon ,either hourly or a flat fee, as well as specifics regarding playlist, location, time, and dress code.
