The Perfect Wedding
Here is a quick guide and some helpful questions to ask when planning music for the big day. To start, it helps to consider your music choices separately for Wedding Ceremony and Wedding Reception.
1) Wedding Ceremony: most commonly there are three formal pieces of music and Lee prefers to play songs requested by the couple.
Processional (entry of the bride or groom or brides or grooms)
Signing of the Register
Recessional (married couple exit)
There are a few questions to consider:
– Would you like music as your guests arrive
– Does the venue require formal/classical music
– Are there songs you have in mind for the walk down the aisle
2) Wedding Reception: live music can be a large or small part of the night:
– Cocktail music as guests arrive
– Entry of the bridal party
– Background dinner music
– The romantic first dance
– Lively music later into the night
Couples often book DJ’s or put on their own music for dance atmosphere later in the night. Lee is happy to perform at the reception for up to three hours, with a minimum of one hour.
Lee finds couples get the most out of his service by attending a consultation for ceremonial music prior to confirming a booking. Contact Lee to discuss your perfect wedding.
