Your wedding ceremony is the very essence of your entire Big Day – so it’s more than natural that you’ll want every part of it to be absolutely amazing, including the music.
What are some of the best tips to keep in mind when it comes to your wedding ceremony music? Well we’ve gathered a few of them below – so read on and find out more.
- Talk to your wedding officiant. This might sound odd to some of you but depending on the location of your wedding ceremony and your religious denomination (if you choose to have a religious wedding), you might not be able to play just any song. For instance, Catholic weddings are limited to one or two songs when it comes to the wedding processional.
- There’s no “good” or “bad” song. In the end, your ceremony music should speak to you and your soul – it should mirror your story. So, if a Metallica tune is what it takes, then so be it. As long as your ceremony officiant allows it, any genre and any song are allowed. Our advice is to be sure you listen very carefully to the lyrics be to be sure the underlying message of the song matches the feeling you want people to have during your wedding. If you simply love a song but are worried it might not give off the right message, perhaps save it for the reception instead.
- Talk to your fiancé. Your wedding ceremony needs to complement both of you and both of your emotions during this super special moment of your life. Therefore, you and your fiancé should be on the same page regarding your wedding ceremony songs.
- Consider choosing something soothing and romantic for the processional and then something more uplifting for the recessional. When walking down the aisle you are walking toward a commitment and something joyful, in anticipation of what is to come, so choosing a softer tune can complement that mood. When you make your wedding ceremony exit, you want people to feel exalted and joyful, so a happier, more energizing song would be more appropriate.
