Quick Guide to Wedding Ceremony Songs

All About Songs
Choosing your wedding music is a very important but often overlooked part of the wedding planning process.  Music creates the mood and sets the ambiance for the event.  Just like a movie with a great soundtrack tells you how to feel, your wedding music can stir up your guest’s emotions.  Not many brides know what different types of music is needed nor have an idea as to what type is appropriate.  Here is a quick guide on the different types you may need.

Prelude Songs
Prelude music is played prior to the ceremony as guests are being seated. These songs will set the tone for your ceremony, therefore classical or jazz music is commonly played.  Depending on your timeline, you will typically choose 5-6 songs to be played at this time.

Processional Songs
The Processional begins as the immediate family members are ready to be seated. Depending on your ceremony dynamics, you will choose a new song as your bridal party walks down the aisle.

Bride Entrance Songs
This one should be obvious.  Choose the perfect song as all eyes will be on the blushing bride!

Interlude Songs
Interlude songs are often used during the ceremony to signify a special moment for the couple. This would be a perfect type of song to play during the lighting of a unity candle.

Recessional Songs
Congratulations, you're married! The recessional song celebrates your new commitment and is played as you walk up the aisle together.

Postlude Songs
The Postlude plays at the conclusion of the ceremony, after the recessional. As your guests exit, the postlude music should keep with the upbeat mood.

As a side note, if you plan on having it done for your wedding  or other event , I recommend getting the procedure done no less than 3 months before your event.  After scouring the internet and watching countless Youtube videos and checking out Instagram photos, I became obsessed with this new beauty craze. For those of you who aren't familar with microblading, it is a type of permanent makeup for your eyebrows.  Your eyebrows are tattooed with permanent ink.  The ink is deposited under the skin, just like a regular tattoo.  Instead of a tattoo blade, microblading uses several needles formoing a blade to cut the skin.  The result is hairlike brush strokes cuts on the skin which are then filled with your choice of colored ink.  While this is a form of permanent make-up, just like any tattoo, touch ups are needed so it's not a one time permenent thing. If you are like me, before I got the procedure, the main thing you proba
