Walking down the aisle towards your husband-to-be is a hugely significant part of your wedding day. To ensure that this once-in-a-lifetime moment is everything you want it to be, you have to
consider your music selection carefully. Your processional song will act as the soundtrack to one of the most memorable occasions of your life, so it's important to get it right!
When it comes to your wedding day, that is exactly the mood your are trying to set. Your own movie scene, per se. Catering to that unique experience, for your wedding, can easily be captured through contemporary acoustic wedding music. Gone are the days of having to stick to the staples of yesterday's weddings. Today's brides are bold and want to have their own special touch to make their wedding day unique. Is this the end all of song lists, of course not! However, it should help spark you, to think outside the box, and chase after that dream song, that will provide that timeless memory.
Yes, it's a beach. But no matter how informal the beach wedding is, beach wedding attire will never translate to a bikini clad beach bride during the ceremonies (especially so if it's a religious one). The beach bride should be a vision to behold, and not some distraction. No, we don't want any bride wearing a long sleeved garment under the hot sun, but the choice for a beach wedding dress should be tasteful and not tacky. The same goes for ultra sexy outfits that offer a lot of mammary exposure. We still have to ask why?
Many couples use the same musicians for both their ceremony and their reception but that is certainly not necessary. For your ceremony you might like to have a singer, a string quartet, a harp, an organ, a flute or even a bagpipe. Then for your reception you might choose a DJ or a dance band. You could even have one set of musicians for the ceremony, one for before and during dinner and a third for dancing after dinner. Your imagination and you budget are the only limits to what you can do.
It is useful to revisit the venue in order to critically appraise its facility for live music performance. What kind of stage (if any) is available? Is there sufficient lighting, and a suitable dance-floor, if needed? Does the venue impose any limitations of time regarding live music? Is there a noise-limiter? Is the wedding breakfast to be served in the same room as the evening party? If so, will the band have sufficient space (and time) to set up their equipment prior to the performance? Bear all this in mind when deciding upon how large a band will be appropriate.
