Music sets the mood and the tone of the ceremony.
Be sure the DJ or musicians start playing 30 minutes before the ceremony is to begin. There is an elegance to having your guests walk into the place where the ceremony will be, see the beautiful flowers and other decorations, and hear soothing music — typically, classical instrumental music. If the music is not playing when they arrive, your wedding lacks something.
There is no right or wrong music to play during the ceremony. Well, hard rock might not fit so well. But most of the songs sung on American Idol or The Voice would work well. Play your favorite Top 40 song. Most couples choose classical music for it fits the elegance of the day.
Where can you find music you might want to have played at your wedding? Your DJ or musicians will certainly have ideas. Here are suggestions, in case you don’t like what they’re offering.
