  • Ceremony Music For Your Wedding

    July 5, 2017 | News
  • One area that "trips up" most brides and grooms is the ceremony music for their Arizona or Chicago Wedding. When selecting the right ceremony music, think about what type of "vibe" you'd like to create as guests walk-in to your ceremony space. Do you want it elegant and romantic (I think everyone does), but upbeat?  Do you want guests to sing along to vocals, or listening to instrumentals? Do you want them to be familiar with the music? 

    I give our clients three options for pre-ceremony music; they can choose to have Vitamin String Quartet, classical music or newer contemporary, easy listening (much like we'd play for cocktail hour). Songs by VSQ create the song of having none other than a live string quartet and is my personal favorite. Classical music is great for VERY elegant weddings. Contemporary is more for a laid-back feeling.

    Whichever pat you choose, your wedding ceremony music should be music that suits you. The processional and recessional should be a similar style to the music you're playing for the pre-ceremony. 

    Here are some great suggestions for your ceremony.
