Tips for Wedding Music Planning: Make your big day sound good!

Welcome back! Today, we are going to wrap up our tips for choosing the best music for your wedding ceremony. There are so many decisions to make when planning a wedding. Save the Date hopes to make wedding music decisions (outside or inside?) a little easier for you by offering tips for wedding music planning!

Having a load of general ideas might hinder your music ceremony list. It’s often difficult to make that final decision. If you’re having trouble figuring out what’s essential for your wedding music, here are some ideas to get you thinking:

  • A certain musician
  • A string quartet in Raleigh NC
  • A particular musical instrument (organ, violin, piano, etc.) or voice
  • A certain piece of music
  • The location of your ceremony
  • Having ringbearers and flower girls
  • Do you and your spouse have a particular song that means something to you?
  • Including your grandmother’s favorite hymn

Define your essential music ideas. It's easier to brainstorm first, then narrow it down. According to,

"The key is understanding which items are essential and which are not; then using that to prioritize your work. As you plan, sort out the essentials first and worry about non-essentials later. This approach keeps you focused what’s really important to you so you end up with the ceremony you’ve dreamed of, rather than being distracted and hung up on details that don’t matter as much to you. It’s OK if your list of essentials grows over time. When starting out, you’ll probably already consider a few things essential. But you’ll also likely add a few more to the list as your planning gets going."

Determining wedding ceremony music can be an exciting, yet stressful thing. Even with these tips for wedding music planning, things can get hectic!  If you’re having trouble and feel like a wedding music planner might help, be sure to keep Save the Date in mind!
