A wedding is truly the most special of events, so you can’t hold back when your big day finally arrives. But what’s a wedding without music? And you want just any kind of music for the big day, no.

Your wedding music is supposed to mean something to you and your spouse. It’s supposed to be music that not only accentuates the joyous day but also something to keep your friends and loved ones smiling for the entirety of the ceremony. Does this all sound like too much work? It’s not. Refer to the tips below for a little help.



  • The Basics

Getting a few keys songs to be played by your DJ is essential. The songs will go from being processional to recessional and the first dance-in all likelihood, you’re having one, right? You would also do well to pick some songs during the pre-ceremony hours and while the papers are being signed.

Those are the key songs but to really achieve the desired effect you want for a great wedding, you’ll want soft-chilled music playing in the background when your guests start arriving. Then when the ceremony is approaching an end, raise the tempo to further set the celebratory mood and get people in the mood to dance.


  • Processional Music

The wedding party walking down the aisle is easily one of the most symbolic moments of a traditional wedding. ‘Bridal Chorus’ by Wagner or ‘Canon in D’ by Pachelbel is usually the song played but there’s no hard and fast rule that says you must stick to this age-old tradition. Dare to be different and have your DJ play something else; something that speaks about the love between you and your special one.


  • Recessional Music

Recessional music, like it’s counterpart up there, is unique. After you and your new spouse are wedded and walk back the way you had come with guests throwing rice at you, you want happy and upbeat music playing loud and true. You want sounds and music that help you celebrate the special moment and tell everyone you’re now officially a married couple!
