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