Whether it’s about keeping your guests on the dance floor or pulling on the heart strings with an emotional song, music is a huge part of any wedding and can really set the tone for the day. For some, choosing a meaningful song is easy, perhaps there is a certain piece that has been the soundtrack of your relationship but for others it’s about finding some lyrics that speak to you.

One of the first things to consider is how you want music played at your wedding, do you want a live musician like a harpist or pianist, perhaps you want a large band or DJ. The most important thing is to find a supplier that you feel comfortable with and give them an idea of how you want the evening to run. It’s about telling your love story through music, so you may want to begin the day with soft and sentimental songs during the quieter intimate moments of the ceremony but then feel free to let loose and show your personality at the reception with the entrance song or first dance being more upbeat. Then if you choose to kick your feet up for the rest of the evening to Kylie Minogue classics or some reggae funk, it’s entirely up to you and your partner, it’s your day and there are no rules.
