Wedding Tip – Ceremony Music

Over the years, I have discovered a myriad of valuable wedding tips that help take the stress out of planning for the big day. I share these wedding tips regularly on our Facebook page; and, from time to time, I will share them here on our blog.

Today I have a “hot tip” for you:

If marrying in a house of worship, inquire about the music policy well before you begin choosing your favorite pieces for the processional, ceremony and recessional. Many don’t allow secular music to be played during wedding ceremonies.

One of our Facebook fans had this comment to share, “This is a GREAT tip! I was blind-sighted a few short months before my wedding after discovering this! We got married in a Catholic church (my husband is Catholic). Our vocalist and pianist had been practicing 6+ months prior to the wedding, only to discover 2 months before the wedding that our song wasn’t “appropriate . (and trust me, it wasn’t inappropriate…it was Matthew West’s “When I Say I Do”). . . “  (See more)

The music you choose will set the mood for your entire celebration, be it religious, classical or contemporary. So, to avoid unnecessary stress, if you are getting married in a house of worship, be sure to get your songs approved well in advance of the big day!

    I’m a mobile DJ and recently a client asked me to not only do their disco but ALSO to pre-record and mix the music for their registry office wedding. It really sounded great and helped the wedding ceremony flow. It made quite a nice change for me to DJ with classical music too!
