Music plays a huge role in creating the perfect atmosphere at your wedding. And having the right music playing at the right time to create your desired ambiance takes planning!

Based upon our previous feature that guided you to Selecting your Wedding Music {Wedding Planning Series}, this week’s installment breaks down each part of your wedding day that will require a special song. The entire wedding day is a time during which so many special traditions (or your own meaningful innovations) take place. You may feel that you’d like to mark each moment with a specific song. Soak up these tips for selecting your wedding music for the different parts of your wedding day.

Before Selecting Your Wedding Music

When choosing your music for each part of your wedding day, be sure to first consider the following:

  • Fave Music Genre: Your preferred genre of music will help you to choose your songs.
  • Playlist of Your Fave Songs: A playlist of the songs that you’d absolutely love to hear.
  • “Do-Not-Play List” Playlist: A playlist of the songs that you’d love not to hear.

Wedding Ceremony Music Checklist

The wedding ceremony has several parts to think about in terms of your music. Depending on the type of ceremony that you are planning, you should choose songs that flow from the time that your guests arrive before the ceremony, until after the ceremony is over.

  • Pre-ceremony music played while your guests are welcomed to the venue and are taking their seats.
  • Processional music played to signal the beginning of the wedding ceremony when the bridal party enters. The music can build up to announce your walk down the aisle.
  • Recessional music played after you’ve exchanged your wedding vows and you’re walking back down the aisle with you husband as newlyweds.
  • Post-ceremony music played during cocktail hour or the pre-drinks session before the wedding reception. Be sure to plan some well-chosen background music for your guests to enjoy while you slip away to have your couple pics taken.

Rock the ballet slippers. Change up the ribbon

With coordinating wedding colors or maybe that "something blue."
This wedding should be a celebration of your love and should express the personalities of you and your fiance.
If we were going to have an reception with lots of dancing I would definitely wear ballet flats, too. But we're just having a trio play for our party while we dine.
Although ... afterwards, we've made plans to set up a bonfire on the beach ... and I probably won't be wearing shoes at all! hehe :)

If it is a fancy venue, then it may be appropriate to have a black-tie event, but if it is a casual venue, it is not necessary to wear something so fancy as a ball-gown or a tuxedo.
