Music...such an important element!

Have you chosen your music for your ceremony yet?  What about your reception music?  Are you having dancing at your reception? 


I love music and think it is such an important part of the ceremony and whole experience of a wedding!  I think we have narrowed down our choices as far as the music goes.  We have tons of songs we're going to put onto a cd and just have it playing while guests are arriving. 


Then for the seating of the mothers and the lighting of the candles we're going to have Somewhere Over the Rainbow/What a Wonderful World

Then we're going to have a powerpoint presentation of photos set to When God Made You

Then my bridal party and I are going to walk down the aisle to Grow Old Along With Me

Then for our unity candle/communion ceremony we're going to have The Blessing by Celtic Woman

Then for the recessional my nephew is going to play Here Comes the Sun on his guitar - similar to this

So what music have you chosen?

That sounds beautiful!


We are having Spanish Guitars for the ceremony, cocktail hour and dinner...not sure about the songs that they will play...really need to work on it. The only definite is Ava Maria for when my Dad walks me down the aisle.


During the dancing portion, we will have a band. Still working on the configuration, but will be either guitar/male vocals, base, drums and female vocals or  guitar/male vocals, drums, base, sax/keyboard.  My FI is not a huge music guy, but I want people to dance.

Oooo kaci - I love guitar music!!!  I'm sure the Spanish Guitars are going to sound beautiful!!!  And Ava Maria is such a timeless, classic song.  I always thought I would want to have that sung at my wedding but it seems that my fiance and I have gone a very different musical direction for our wedding but still I think you have made a wonderful choice!
