The Importance of Music in Your Wedding Ceremony

Music – Important or Not?

I have to write about this topic because in many ways music as well as the words spoken truly make a wedding ceremony.

This afternoon, my lovely bride just sent to me the music selections for her ceremony next weekend to be incorporated into her custom written ceremony and Order of Service.

Once I received her selections, I found myself searching and playing each piece of music from youtube.com while adding final touches to the ceremony. I enjoyed every moment.

Music can be included prior to the ceremony for guests to enjoy while they take their seats (prelude), while the groom/groomsmen (optional), bridesmaids and bride (procession) enter the ceremony, while legal documents are being signed (interlude) and finally after the couple are married and walk back down the aisle (recession).

Memories of your wedding ceremony should be as important and vivid in your memory as your wedding gown/tuxedo, wedding party, dinner and entertainment.

Whether you choose, classical, jazz, country or rock music, it doesn’t matter as long as the music played at your ceremony is loved by you and/or members of your family.

Lasting Memories

And remember, 15 years from now if that particular piece of music is played on the radio, at a concert or even at another wedding, it will immediately remind you of that wonderful wedding ceremony years before; a ceremony filled with meaningful words about the two of you, your loving friends, family and the lifelong commitment you made to each other on your special day.

Break with Tradition or Embrace It?

Don’t worry if your music selections break with tradition, or if you want to stay with traditional choices – just embrace the music and the joy that will surround you both on your wedding day. You will be very glad that you did.
