Creating Melody Magic on your Special Day…
Here Comes the Bride
Mendelssohn’s Wedding March and Wagner’s Bridal Chorus continue to be firm favourites for that all important walk down the aisle. For something a little different, consider
a string ensemble for a truly elegant entrance. If you’d like the live action without the cost, ask a musical friend to sing you through.
Decided on a good old fashioned song on a CD? Remember to think about the logistics – who will put the music on for you as you’re about to get going, and stop it when you reach the altar? If there isn’t a toastmaster, ask a guest to take on the role.
Cutting the Cake
Picture the scene: The newlyweds are making their way into the dining room to undertake the ritual cake cutting and the DJ begins blaring out Cliff Richard’s ‘Congratulations’. Overshadowed by the first dance, couples often forget to tell their DJ or band what they want as their entry song. Don’t let this be you – choose your song or have it chosen for you!
The First Dance
Still a popular rite of passage for many newlyweds, the first dance can range from
a classic Whitney slow jam to an up-tempo chart topper. The important thing is to choose
a song that’s special to you both and sums up the sentiment of your day. Can’t decide? Put your favourite songs in a bag and ask one of your guests to choose for you!
Get your jig on with a ceilidh, jazz it up with
a swing band, belt out the classics with karaoke, or enjoy a good old fashioned boogie with a DJ or simple iPod playlist. Have a crowd with diverse tastes? Mix between different genres throughout the night to keep your guests literally on their toes!
