5 Reasons Why Your Wedding Ceremony Music Is Important
So you’ve picked a day, your venue, your flowers, booked the photographer, and you’ve scheduled dress fittings, ceremony musicians contracted… Wait, who hired the ceremony musicians?
Obviously you know music is a critical part of every wedding ceremony. But it’s often a last minute consideration in the planning process. And this leads to serious headaches and last minute problems.
Here are the top 5 reasons why music is the most important part of your wedding ceremony and you should proactively plan ahead.
1. SILENCE IS NOT GOLDEN
What wedding ceremony have you been to that doesn’t have music?
None, right? So why is the ceremony music among the last considerations? Think about it.
What could be more uncomfortable than a large assembly of people sitting and waiting for a wedding ceremony to begin…in silence?
Consider the infamous Throne Room scene from Star Wars IV, minus the music of John Williams. A little awkward…right?
2. IT SETS THE VIBE FOR YOUR SPECIAL DAY.
Your wedding music is like the soundtrack of your wedding ceremony, creating an atmosphere of feelings and allows guests to take part in your union, so it’s important to pick the right music.
To ensure that the music would really set the mood of your wedding day, discuss your ideas with our music specialist. These professionals can assist you in matching the type of music and instruments to your wedding theme and decor. For example, a classical artists would be perfect for a classy and elegant wedding while a jazz trio would be perfect with a vintage-style wedding.
3. GUESTS EXPECT PROFESSIONAL QUALITY MUSIC
While your friends and family members may not be highly skilled musicians, they know what quality music should sound like. So it’s probably not a good idea to hire the runner up winner of your local pub’s Karaoke night.
Planning a wedding is stressful enough without placing that wild card in the deck. You’ll alleviate a lot of stress by putting your ceremony music in the hands of professional musicians who not only meet your expectations, but surpass them. And remember, the best musicians get booked early! So plan accordingly.

Your ceremony setlist reveals more about your taste and personality than any other aspect of your wedding ceremony. Music is deeply personal. Also, your preferred style of music — likes and dislikes — are unique to you.
So who are you? Whether it’s timeless hits, well-known classical pieces or a mix of both, the music you choose does more than reflect your personal tastes and expresses who you are. Your wedding is a once in a life time experience. So do right by your music!
5. IT’S WHAT THEY’LL BE TALKING ABOUT FOR AGES
