Many people say that your wedding day is the most important day of your life.

That means that the most important moment of your life is the ceremony. It is where everything happens.

That’s why picking the music for this special occasion is so important. It’s a huge decision to make. Check out our guide below to help you make the choice about your wedding ceremony music. Let’s get started!

What You Need to Know

There are many things when making arrangements for your wedding.

And yet, that shouldn’t mean that you forget to think about the ceremony music. Everyone’s going to be there to hear it!

You need to determine how many songs you need for the ceremony. This depends on the duration of the event.

Select carefully for the processional and recessional songs. This is what everyone’s going to remember.

Consult the Venue

Are you holding the wedding event at the church or a secular venue?

This can influence the kind of music you can choose for your wedding ceremony. Rock n’ Roll may not be appropriate for a religious environment.

You also need to ensure that the venue is prepared for your music choice. Do they have the right resources to play your songs?

You could even hire a band to play at your wedding ceremony.

Make the Song Special for You

You probably have “a song” which you both share together.

Was there a particular song playing in the background on your first date? Did you enjoy dancing together in the kitchen to a certain tune?

This is the perfect opportunity to play that special song at your wedding ceremony. You thought that song was special before. It’s even more meaningful now.

Scan the Lyrics Again

You may love the sound of a particular song. However, you might never have listened carefully to the lyrics.

This can be dangerous at your wedding ceremony. Many beautiful songs are about awful things.

For example, did you know that Police’s “Every Breath You Take” is actually about jealousy and break-ups?

That’s probably not the right tone for your wedding. It’s always good to go over the lyrics to make sure you don’t embarrass yourself.

What’s Your Wedding Theme?

You may select a theme which goes with the song. This is a wonderful and creative way to tie together your music choices.

You may select a particular genre of music which you’re both connected to. Or, you may decide that music from the 90s is close to your heart.

You don’t have to announce the theme of your wedding to your guests either. You can make the music selection a surprise on the day of the ceremony.
