Wedding Wednesday

Music for your wedding is an intregral part of the entire day. Choose some classics with a twist !

Welcome to another Wedding Wednesday ! Today I have decided to talk about the music you may choose for your special day. If you think about it, music is an integral part of the entire day. You need something for your processional & if you are getting married in a Catholic Church your choices are very limited. What type of music will be playing during cocktail hour? Will you have whatever the venue offers being piped in as background music or can you hear an eclectic keyboard player tapping away at his keys? Now, you need something romantic that may tug on everyone's heart strings for your first dance. And remember choosing the best possible song for the Parents' dance is very important as well. On to the rest of the evening. What type of music will get people's feet a 'tappin, & their hands a 'clappin? I found a great article in the Fall/Winter issue of Brides Connecticut about jazzing up your play list while keeping all of your guests happy & entertained. For example if you love the song "At Last" by Etta James request it by Jason Mraz. If  "Someone To Watch Over Me" is your Dad's favorite song by Frank Sinatra, you may request the version by Amy Winehouse. By all means the Rolling Stones version of "Wild Horses" is amazing, but turn it up by The Sundays. Whatever music you choose make it all about you, the bride & the groom. Make each note resonate with who you are & where your journey as husband & wife will lead.

Absolutely. I was part of a band for many years. We played at hundreds of weddings. The music/entertainment is the entity that always makes the wedding a success
