Wedding Music: What Not to Do

Wedding Music: What Not to Do
By Cedric P Loiselle

Aside from your outfits, what makes your wedding memorable is the music. From the wedding ceremony to the reception, music sets the mood, therefore making every moment count, from the time the bride walks down the aisle to the time when everyone is dancing at the reception. The music used depends on the type of wedding and the preference of the couple. Choosing the right wedding music playlist can be daunting. Some people hand the job to the wedding DJ or to the wedding band. In either case, make sure you don't do any of these mistakes.

Starting Quiet

Guests may arrive early and may find themselves waiting for half an hour before the ceremony begins. Do not let them wait while hearing nothing but chatter. Music should start playing an hour before the processional. Song choices are important. You may be a fan of heavy metal rock, but your guests most likely will not be, so you have to choose songs that most people would like.

Not Knowing the Venue

There are several reasons why the wedding venue should be checked before the actual event. One reason is for you to check the sound limitations of the place. In closed venues, you may only be worried about proper speaker placement to ensure the best sound quality. In open venues, say a garden or beach, sound production becomes a tough challenge, as there are no walls that would cause the echoes of sound. The environmental noise (waves, wind, rustling leaves, etc.) may also drown the sound produced by the band or the speakers. The sound system should be adjusted to address the ambient acoustic limitations.

Playing Unfitting Songs

Wedding DJs are expected to know which songs must and must not be played at the church. Churches do not allow popular music to be played inside. If you love hip-hop beats, save that playlist until your reception or until the officiating pastor or priest has left the venue. Make sure your band or DJ knows what songs to play during certain segments of the wedding. Choose appropriate songs for each segment.

Not Checking the Playlist

While you may have hired the best wedding DJ in town, he may not have full knowledge of songs you love or dislike. He may unknowingly pick up a song that, to you, brings some old painful memories. Do not let a song catch you by surprise on your wedding by looking at the list of songs that your DJ or band is set to play. It is better that you specify to them the songs that you don't want to hear-as well as songs you love.

Letting the Speakers Boom

Save the lively sound volume at the end of the wedding, when everyone is dancing. During the rest of the event, music should be played at a moderate volume. You don't want your wedding guests to go home with their ears ringing!

During dinner or cocktail hour, the ideal songs are soft love songs or instrumentals. Hip-hop and dance beats may affect the appetite of your guests. Loud rock music may even spoil their desire to eat!
