A bride walking down the aisle on her wedding day is a momentous occasion. It not only marks the beginning of your wedding day, but also the beginning of your married life with the person you want to spend the rest of your life with.
Unsurprisingly, many brides want the moment to be as seamless as possible, and choosing a beautiful piece of music for your wedding ceremony will help set the tone for the proceedings and your wedding day as a whole. Below are some tips to help you select the perfect piece of music to walk down the aisle to.
1. Go non-traditional
Although organists and pianists can provide gorgeous music, you may want to opt for something less traditional for your Gloucester hotel wedding venue. If you are seeking inspiration when it comes to choosing between a string quartet or a soul choir, check out Hitched’s advice.
2. Consider the mood you want to create
Many couples give consideration to what song they want to use for their first dance as newlyweds, and you should put the same thought into choosing the music of the ceremony. It’s more than likely you’ll want it to be romantic and emotional to reflect what you’ll be feeling on your wedding day.
3. Ambience is key
The music should be comfortable for listeners at your wedding, so ensure you choose music that will make them feel relaxed (the volume shouldn’t be too loud), complementing your natural rhythm as you walk down the aisle.
4. Go for something appropriate
Whether it’s to do with the food, the cars, or considering whether to hold your wedding in London, or a Gloucester Hotel Wedding Venue, you’ll know what’s appropriate for your wedding. The same should go for the music too. For instance, if you’ve opted for a civil ceremony, you may be advised against selecting religious music, so find out if there are any limitations with regards to your music.
5. Select your music in plenty of time
Last week, you may have fallen in love with the latest ballad on the radio, but avoid the temptation to choose the latest number one, at the last minute. Choose music that is timeless and that you know you’ll still love on your 50th wedding anniversary.
