When deciding on the type of music for your wedding, there are several key points to keep in mind. The ceremony itself consists of four stages of music where you may have an organist or soloist perform, unless you perfer to hire a choir! (note: In Orthodox Jewish ceremonies music is not played at all.)
As the guests arrive and take their seats, music floats through the air to create a tranquil, peaceful effect. Several peices should be picked here that may end abrubtly when the mother of the bride makes her entrance.
|The Reception Music
You are now married and are celebrating the fact with close family and friends at the reception. A popular tradition is hiring a DJ to play a mix of music. The advantages of this quite simply is that you are able to satidfy everyone. You may play a specific order of music or let your guests "dedicate" music throughout the reception. Another alternative would be to hire a band. You have several choices here. You may want to hire a group who specializes in wedding receptions, therefore playing music specific to your style. You may want to reconsider the idea of hiring a rock band to play. You may upset Grandma or Uncle Lou!. One more option would be to play classical music to set a formal mood.
