Alternatively titled: “Things to consider when planning your wedding music.”
I'm a day late for Wedding Tip Tuesday, but I really want to talk to you about the importance of music in a wedding.
I truly do believe music is the most important part of any wedding, particularly the ceremony. Why do I believe this? First, music sets the tone for any event. If you’re having a very formal wedding, do you want classical music playing to set an elegant tone? If you’re having a religious ceremony, will your guests know they are in a holy environment just by the music they hear? If you’re having a beach wedding, do you want people to get in that party mood right from the get-go? In the same way, playing classical music at a backyard wedding can make the whole event seem more upscale if that's what you're going for, or if your venue is a chapel, but you play the latest Top 40 hits, that sends a whole different message to the guests than if you chose to play hymns or classical music.
Decorations, pretty dresses, hair and makeup, are all part of making the day feel more special, but music is a universal language. It speaks to everyone and has an effect on your guests that, even if all those other little details were gone, would still convey the most important message: why they’re all here (which is to celebrate your union in marriage) and what type of event this is going to be. .
Tune in next Tuesday for Part 2 of 4! 💜💛
