For most brides and grooms, the music that will be played during your wedding ceremony is a very big deal.
It is possible that you know exactly which songs you’re going to play but you have no idea in what order. It is also possible that you have no idea of how to go about selecting the music you want and that’s perfectly understandable if we consider the amount of work that needs to be done when planning a wedding ceremony.
An important factor when choosing your wedding music is the setting. If you’re about to have a religious ceremony, you can’t certainly play pop music. I mean, you could but would it not be a bit out of context?
If your ceremony will not be in a religious setting, you could take a more traditional approach with a classic love song, but keep in mind that it’s always better to stay within the bounds of good taste, so keep it classy!
Most religious ceremonies require their own music and do not allow secular music, which can always be played after, during your wedding reception of course.
Many churches require songs that are religion-related but that do not make explicit references to God. However, they must be focused on love and marriage.
Vocal music is probably the aspect of your wedding where you will want to have an opinion on the matter, especially because the songs that will be played should be particularly meaningful to you. You should choose original songs that possibly haven’t also been played at a hundred other weddings.
Give up on cliches and try and be original as much as you can.
Vocal selections may also be included in the pre-ceremony music, so you don’t need to worry about that. Many couples leave the choice of pre-music to the musicians themselves, as they feel they have too many decisions to make already…
And can we blame them?
