In The Key Of Marriage
You certainly can use "wedding
music" if you like for your ceremony; many brides have
their hearts set on it and will use no other. But far more
don't use it, and being that music is just as much an art form
as a wedding dress, the choice of that music, just like the
choice of your dress or tux,- will say a lot about you.
have over six decades of music to choose from, almost all of
which is on compact disc for
your DJ, or performable by your musicians. And if you choose
not to go with traditional wedding music, then choose something
from the genre that you like most. I have heard all forms of
music from Jazz, Rock, Blues, Hip
Hop, Swing, Classical, Blue Grass, Folk, New Age and Country
played during my ceremonies.
All of those brides and grooms got high marks for saving
us from the predictable "cliche" music like "Taco
Bell Cannon in D" that is so often played during wedding ceremonies.
What kind of
should you play during your ceremony? The kind you set your
station to on your Friday afternoon drive home from work. Your
ceremony's music needs to be you!
You will need four
songs or "themes" for my ceremony:
1. For the Entrance of the Bridal Party.
2. The Bride's Entrance.
3. For your Unity Candle (or Wine Sharing,
or Sand Ceremony or Blessing Tree etc.)
followed by the Giving of Roses to VIPs. Remember: this is
one song for both events and not two.
4. Your Recessional Walk through your guests as they line
center aisle and applaud you or blow bubbles etc at the ceremony's conclusion.
Your DJ, or your musicians are the ones to ask in helping you pick just the
right music for your ceremony.
