Music to your ears!

Updated: Jan 2

Music is such a key part of life and new beginnings. A single song can encompass all your feelings in 3 minutes and those are the songs that should be played on your wedding day. Either it is the first song you both listened together or the song that you sing in the car or the one that encompasses your love. Whatever the song may be there are many opportunities on your wedding day for it to be played!

On your wedding day music is needed during these times

  • Getting ready - listen to your favorites with your friends, maybe throw in some Akon, Jay-Z, The Beatles, Rolling Stones, or Tim McGraw and Blake Shelton

  • Prelude music for the ceremony - songs or instrumentals played while guests are arriving for the ceremony

  • Processional- softer music played when walking down the aisle

  • Recessional - feeling good music played when walking up the aisle

  • Cocktail hour - think songs you might play in the car but still be able to have a conversation over them

  • Introduction- Music needed for your wedding party to be introduced as well as your song when you enter as newlyweds

  • First Dance - This is the song that encompasses your love

  • Family Dances- Songs that mean something to you and your significant family member

& The song to get everyone out onto the dance floor!

Here are some songs that I have been saving to share with you! They are all different genres of music and many of them have alternate versions that can be explored and used. These are songs I listen to on my Spotify and imagine my clients using or picture wedding parties dancing to them.
