The joy of conjugal bliss is overwhelming and to say the least, it is a ‘chai’ experience with good music. No matter how important getting the bride’s dress is to a wedding ceremony or the foods to be eaten, or the drinks to be gulped, or the kisses to be swallowed, or the friends to be invited, getting the right sets of music to complement the bliss that started from proposal until the “I do” on the wedding day can never be ruled out.
Planning your wedding music, especially if you are using a disc jockey and not a music band, should not be taken with levity and that is why we have taken time to outline some guides to help you through the seemingly simple but daunting moments of music selection:
- Make Personal Research on Wedding Songs Ideas: This may often come from your individual favorite songs. Songs that you and your spouse create memories with. But then, it is necessary to seek advice if they are going to connect with your guests and if they are appropriate for such a day. Go online to look out for various wedding music ideas like ones meant for Couple’s entry, groom dance, bridal dance, walking down the aisle and so on. The essence of this is to be duly aware of what it looks like before hiring a DJ, if you ever would. Do this as you put an unforgettable spice on your wedding.
- Hiring a DJ: Consult event planners and friends to know which DJ is best for your wedding. When you meet any of the recommended DJs, have an interview session with him or her. Ask for previous works and ask how he/she ends up playing selected music on the wedding day. What you should watch out for is the psychologist in your prospective DJ. if he/she understands what and why to play particular songs at different point of your wedding ceremony, moments like walking down the aisle, Father-Daughter dance (which usually is emotional), Mother-Son dance (which is often nostalgic), entrance songs for wedding reception (which could be a bang or solemn entrance) etc.
- Avoid Complications: Be sure to know if you want to go the modern way or oldies. Do not make mixtures and transitions of songs too complicated because unforeseen circumstances like extended dance time might occur. Finally, to prepare for the day, it is advisable to go through the final list of songs with your DJ, you can never say, it may be your indirect rehearsals.
