Your wedding music sets the ambiance for the whole evening. No matter what the setting, you can set the mood for a fun, romantic or conservative wedding with the music. The best weddings are not difficult to plan for and your wedding songs are no different. Here's a step by step guide to planning it out to perfection!
1. Ask For Suggestions
Your friends and family would love to be a part of the planning process and this is the easiest way to keep them out of planning the menu for the evening! Ask for suggestions and then make a decision regarding the right band or the songs to be played. Don't ignore the elders in the family; they have the best hands on experience after all!
2. It s All About The Feel You Want
Consider the exact feel you want at the wedding - do you want romance to be the only flavor? Or, are you all for a fun experience? Is it likely to be a party with high energy levels? This will decide whether you go for high tempo bridal songs or just ones that are dreamy and soft!
3. Dealing With The Wedding Band
Making the reservation in time is just one of your worries! There are a number of details you need to ensure when you are booking that band.
a. Talk to the band about the clothing for the evening. Your favorite singer in a miniskirt may be great for your high school friends but are you sure your Aunt Emily is going to approve?
b. One of the important details couples often miss out relates to overtimes (yes, even music bands have them!). Usually, a wedding band or DJ is booked for about 4 hours or so. Ideally, you should consider the duration of the reception carefully before making a booking. If you decide on an extended performance during the course of the party, you may have to pay an expensive overtime!
4. Your Wedding Song List
Provide the band a wedding song list of your choice. Also include a list of songs you don't want to be played. Insist on your list being followed, no matter how many notes your uncle Charlie is waving around for the Macarena song!
5. Using A CD or Song List?
CDs are fine, so long as you list the tracks and number them. It simply makes it easier for your DJ to play them to a plan. The DJ may also have music collection so you may only need to supply a song list. Provide this to the DJ well in adavance so he can prepare but remember to keep a copy close to hand in case it is forgotten!
