Your wedding day is a major event in your life. Organizing it can be fun and daunting at the same time. Until now youíve probably been obsessing over gowns and suits, making sure that the cake will be outstanding, booking the limousine, celebrant and venue, selecting the most delightful floral arrangements, selecting rings, organizing the catering and pondering over seating plans. Itís only natural that these things are of high importance on your list of things to do because you want your wedding day to run smoothly and be perfect!
But have you given much thought to the music? Wedding music can make a huge difference to whether you and your guests remember this event as gorgeous, or as ĎOK, but too bad about the musicí.
Organizing the music can often be left to the last minute. Most couples either overlook it or figure that this is a thing that they can do themselves to save money. Thinking like this can really devastate your enjoyment of this momentous occasion on the day and impact on the total atmosphere of the event.
Just imagineÖthe guests arrive and the reception venue and there is no music because youíre still out getting photos done, the sound system hasnít been set up or your delegate has been distracted. Are they entering just a room of empty noise? Has a musical backdrop been created against the void of conversational pauses? Is the volume correct? No doubt you wonít want people complaining that it is either too loud, or inaudible.
No, this just wonít do. Why should you be stressing about the music when you should be luxuriating in the radiance of your nuptials? Thatís where live entertainment comes to the fore. A DJ or a Band, or a combination, will know exactly what music is needed at precisely the right moment. And if anything needs tweaking, it can be handled immediately without you having to worry.
When the speeches begin, the DJ will discontinue music to allow the MC to conduct the formalities. Alternatively special fun songs can be played as the Groom, Parents or special guests come up to speak. How great it would be to have the Rocky theme played as the Groom traverses the room! And then the Austin Powers theme is used for the Best man.
And you will probably want a special song as you cut the cake to enhance this beautiful moment. A DJ can have this on hand and playing at precisely the right moment. So too as you then move to the dance floor for your Bridal Waltz.
Now itís time to party, to celebrate, and you will want your guests to share in this celebration too. So itís time for dancing. If you compile and use your own music, your selections may not be the most conducive for this. For instance, you might love the latest Rap singles, but do your guests? You need to remember that there will be age differences to cater for, so a wide selection of music genre is recommended. Gran and Gramp might appreciate an occasional tune from their era, especially if they can sing along too!
And are your Ďfavoritesí even suitable for dancing? A profession DJ can help you by playing the best music mix designed specifically for dancing. This range of music will include all your requests, family favorites, party songs, great dance songs & romantic moments.
So ensure that your wedding music is organized early and thoughtfully. Donít leave it to chance or try to scrimp on money by doing it yourself. This may cost your memories of the event dearly. Make sure you hire live entertainment professionals to oversee this important aspect of your wedding, so that your wedding is remembered for all the right reasons. In fact, you may even discover that the outlay for hiring a DJ is one of the cheapest things of the entire event!
