A wedding is, at its most basic, a celebration. And every celebration needs music. That’s why it’s such an important part of the big day. From creating mood and atmosphere to getting people on their feet and dancing – different parts of the day require different tunes. So how do you go about choosing your wedding music?
Here’s a quick look at some of your options:
Spinning some stone cold classic on the wheels of steel late into the evening, even gran is up and dancing. The wedding DJ is a firm favourite because they can play tunes you all know and love, with a back catalogue that includes all recorded music. Not so good for walking down the aisle though.
Romantic, elegant and sophisticated. Just imagine walking down the aisle to Bach. It’s also a great option for playing throughout drinks and dinner. Although, even though they might be supreme musicians, it’s hard to get a party started with a cello.
Choose your style – folk, rock, funk, heavy metal? – and then get band to rock your party all night long. The force of a full band gives your wedding a real festival and fun time feel. And they can even scale it back for some more atmospheric playing throughout the day. But some bands can have a limited set list. And we really don’t recommend heavy metal for a wedding. Not unless you want your guests to go home with a stiff neck from all the head banging.
