Wedding Music Just for You

Selecting your wedding music can seem a bit daunting. We’ve lost count of the number of Brides and Grooms who’ve told us that they don’t know what they’re doing or where to start.

Finding the right wedding music is really essential. You want the main music of the day to be personal to you and therefore more memorable. The day is about you as a couple and the music should also reflect this. Where to begin?

Start by thinking about your favourite music – bands, artist, genres. This can narrow the search down. What instruments do you both like? Maybe you saw a harpist playing at a wedding and thought it was beautiful. Or you’ve always loved Spanish guitar, or jazz saxophone? When you sit and think about it, take notes. You’ll be surprised at how much you may uncover and this will help you to pick the right wedding songs.

Next, take your ideas and type them into Google and Youtube. You’ll quickly find lots of suggestions based on whatever you type in. If there’s a marriage song that you like and an instrument or combination of instruments that appeal, then type this into the Youtube search bar. For example, you love the Van Morrison song ‘Have I told you lately?’ and you love the guitar. So you can type in ‘Have I told you lately Van Morrison for solo guitar’ and see what comes up.

Wedding Music Musicians and Agencies

Now you’ve been inspired, you can either start searching directly for musicians online, or wedding entertainment agencies. This means that your search has begun in earnest but you have more of a sense of what you want and therefore what to avoid. Do keep an open mind when it comes to superb wedding songs as well. If any of your enquiries lead to other suggestions, do consider these as well. Even if they’re not what you initially imagined. One of the advantages experienced musicians and agencies have is that they’ll have provided great wedding music for so many different weddings.  Choosing music for weddings can be challenging when you have little experience.  They can help you select the most appropriate songs for your wedding, whether modern or traditional. With their experience, they can offer practical help also. As an example you’d love a solo harpist, but any of the ones that seem great are above your budget. So you can either decide to increase/balance your budget or you may be sure that it’s something that you don’t want to pay so much for. In which case, if you were talking to us, we’d suggest something like a solo cellist instead. It’s not a harp, but it sounds equally exquisite and has the wow factor. However, for various reasons most cellists won’t charge as much as a harpist will.

We hope this is helpful – if you’re still stuck or would like a friendly discussion about your choice of music for your wedding, please contact us.
