Your Guide to Wedding Prelude Music
Planning a wedding is not easy. There are thousands of minute details you need to look into before you get that perfect wedding! Your wedding prelude music sets the tone for the evening to follow, so decide on it with care:
When Should I Start Playing The Wedding Prelude Music?
Ideally, you should start playing it as soon as the guests start coming in. Remember, the background music is the most important part of setting the ambience - you don’t want to start off late! Have the music playing the moment the guests are allowed in. Plan for around 30 minutes of prelude music. You need not plan ALL the songs that are going to be played. It is best to give your DJ or the band broad instructions as to what you like and what you don’t which can be explain in a list of example songs selected from OurBridalSongs.com list of wedding prelude songs.
What Kind Of Music Should I Have?
1. It depends on the theme you are opting for (if you are having a theme at all). Follow the general theme you are having in the flowers, decorations etc. If you are not having a theme, have something light yet lively as your wedding prelude music.
2. Be careful about the venue. If you are having a beach wedding, for instance, a harp will be inaudible so don’t plan on that as your prelude music.
3. The number of songs you select as your wedding prelude music depends on how many people you are having over as guests and the time it will take for the bride and the groom to arrive. The prelude music will keep your guests entertained during this time, so it is best to go for popular hits without making it very upbeat (you don't want the dancing to start even before you have entered the scene!).
Your wedding prelude music can be anything that is soft and appealing. There you have it - the decision isn't so tough now, is it?
