Planning a wedding is an undertaking filled with difficult decisions, and near the top of that list sits the menacing questions of specific tunes. For some couples, they’ve had a special song since day one that they need to play. For normal couples (including me, who’s currently planning my own personal wedding), these music choices aren’t as obvious. And when decisions have to be made about the Wedding Party Processional, Bridal Processional, Recessional, Sand Ceremony Music, Reception Dances, etc…the task is nothing short of daunting.
As a wedding planner, this is one of the questions that gets asked most frequently…hence this handy-dandy blog post with wedding music recommendations! I’ll be publishing a series of posts dedicated to each special dance and moment for which the music sets the scene. In our hundreds of weddings and events, F&F have learned a thing or two about picking music, and I’m looking forward to sharing some of our most frequently requested tunes on this blog series.
Where do I need to have music?
Every wedding is different, and being your big moment, this question will vary from couple to couple. But here is a list of common places for music to be chosen:
- Intro/Seating music (while people take their seats)
- Bridal Party Processional
- Bride’s Processional
- Sand ceremony or other filler music
- Wedding Party Introductions
- Cake Cutting
- Bride/Groom First Dance
- Wedding Party
- Anniversary dance
Each one of these musical moments are unique and special to the event, but because of that, can become a very stressful decision. Though we can’t read your memories Harry Potter style, we can provide a couple standard choices to at least get you pointed in the right direction. Take a deep breath, don’t over-think the choices, and let’s get started!
