Wedding music involves so much more than just finding your favorite songs to dance to at the reception. Different things to consider when going over wedding music ideas include wedding processional music for when you walk down the aisle, the timeline of your reception and what wedding reception music will be used for different dances and activities, and don’t forget your guests before the wedding – no one wants to sit in silence while waiting for the bride, so you will most likely want wedding ceremony music too!
The articles above have great wedding music ideas for before the ceremony, walking down the aisle, cocktail hour, and the reception. Perfect Wedding Guide is your partner in perfect wedding planning, and we can offer tips on whether to hire musicians to play your wedding processional music, pay extra to have your DJ play wedding ceremony music or skip the DJ all together and hire a band for your wedding reception music.
Learn what to ask potential wedding DJs, and what should be included in the DJs duties such as introductions, toasts and activities, which songs should be played and which songs should not be played. In addition to your wedding music, many wedding DJs can supply special effects such as customized lighting, smoke and bubble machines, props and other effects.
If you are planning special wedding ceremony music or wedding processional music be sure and check with your venue first. Many churches do not allow secular music inside the sanctuary, so check with your wedding officiant before signing off on your DJ to play your favorite rap song as you walk down the aisle.
