Choosing music for a wedding

A lot of time (and money!) often goes into planning a special wedding. Music can be very powerful in setting the tone of the occasion. Browsing the internet, there are many posts from people asking for suggestions of music suitable for weddings.

Derek Moule is an experienced pianist and offers some advice for people trying to choose music for a wedding. He suggests searching for less commonly played music that was written specifically as wedding music. Many composers wrote fantastic wedding bridal entrances and postludes that are not played very often and so seem special and unique to your wedding, yet are designed for the occasion and so sound 'right'. CD recordings of popular songs, Wagner's Bridal March from 'Lohengrin' and Mendelssohn's Wedding March from 'Midsummer Night's Dream' are very common but played so often so might not seem as unique or special. As you listen to the music try to imagine if it would create the atmosphere that you would like while you walk down the aisle or depart from the ceremony.

Having music performed 'live' at a wedding provides much better sound quality, is more special as it is really being performed for the wedding and eliminates problems caused by wrong tracks being used.
