What could be better for your wedding day than flowers, cake, and confetti? An incredible soundtrack of course! Throughout your big day, many moments can present event more pizzazz if they are accompanied by music. This is especially true for your wedding ceremony, as you will want to set the best atmosphere for both you and your guests.
The right music for your wedding ceremony will do wonders for your big day!
After all, you want to begin your marriage in the best setting, don’t you?
The ceremony prelude
Guests will need a little time to find their seats, greet other guests and family members, and settle in. This time does not have to be silent. Providing a lovely musical setting with songs such as A Thousand Years by Christina Perri
will keep the awkward silences at bay.
Processional for your wedding party
Your groomsmen and bridesmaids will make their way down the aisle. You can either put on an entertaining display with an entrance dance paired with a song such as Forever by Chris Brown. Or, take a traditional
approach with songs such as Hymne by The O’Neill Brothers.
Here comes the bride processional.
This is it, your big entrance! You can set the right mood with a modern song such as Marry Me by Train. Or perhaps, you could set the tone with a more unique and upbeat song choice like Just the Way You Are by Bruno Mars.
The ceremony interlude. If there is any moment where you might be pausing the ceremony, such as preparing your candle or sand ceremony, the right song will keep the spirit of the ceremony going. Can’t Help Falling in Love by Haley Reinhart is a romantic song choice to present
The Grand Ballroom Entrance
It's time to introduce the bride and groom. This is the highlight of the night
that your guests will be looking forward to. I will be the one announcing your wedding party. It's important we go over the names and pronunciations of the bridal party before your wedding day. I will also rehearse the names with the bridal party prior to announcing them to your guests, on your wedding day.
Whatever it is that you have dreamed to be your grand wedding entrance,
I can assure you it will come true on your special day.

Your First Dance
After you have your big announcement. It's your choice to have the first dance when your introduced, or after dinner.
The majority of weddings I have played for in the past, usually have the first dance right after the bride and groom are introduced. I personally feel that the attention is already on the couple and it's the best time for everyone to see their first dance. It's also important for me, to make sure the photographer is ready to capture those very special shots, of the new couple taking their first steps together as husband and wife.
