It may not be the very first element you recall, but the music that is played at your wedding is a definite go-to must. How could you possibly celebrate your special day without music? It would be virtually impossible! So it’s a good idea to crack down with a pen and paper and list down a playlist that will make your evening go down splendidly. After all, as the romantic writer Victor Hugo once said: “Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent.” So pump it up, follow these simple tips and hit the dance floor!
Always be sure to choose a musical style that reflects your personality type over what you think your guests expect of you. If Pachelbel’s Canon in D does not do it for you, don’t ask your string orchestra to play it as you glide down the aisle. Try to recall what songs made you and your partner smile, move around, and dig out some moves. Is one of your favourite songs “The Power of Love” by Céline Dion, or do you prefer “You are Man and Wife” by Michelle Featherstone? Or do you flip out to the Beatles’ “All You Need Is Love?” Whatever your personal music is, make sure to remain true to yourself.
Remember: music is not static. On the contrary. With all of its beautiful fluidity, music should be appreciated for its diversity, so let that be reflected on your playlist. Of course, we all understand if you’d like the string ensemble to play classical airs during the ceremony, but what about when it comes time to dance? When the evening comes into full swing, play some classics like the Islay Brothers’ “Twist and Shout” or “Waiting For Tonight” by Jennifer Lopez. You won’t go wrong
Finally, it’s important to end the evening on a high note, where all your guests, young or old, have tapped their feet or danced during one of your songs. In other words: pick songs that were famous back in the day as well, given that some senior guests will not feel like part of the party if only newbies are played. So make sure to play some good old oldies, let your parents do a number, and let the evening be sweet for everyone.
Don’t forget to let yourself go at the wedding, it is your special day after all. It’s time to shake things up, dance around, you’re married!
