Wedding Song Recommendations: Ceremony

“How do I choose a song for our father daughter dance?”

“What if we don’t have a “song”, how do we choose our first dance track?”
“We want to be different so what do you suggest for our grand entrance song?”
These are all great questions and ones that we hear all the time. So, we decided to start posting our best recommendations and even creative song selections from our own clients to help all of our brides and grooms to be!
Today’s post tackles the very important and meaningful wedding ceremony songs.  There are so many pieces of a ceremony to be accompanied by music such as the seating of the family, the bridal party march, the processional, the recessional, and more.  Our clients often get lost when the time comes to choose music for these memorable moments.  If you are not hiring live musicians for the ceremony, your options are even greater.  And, as DJs, we understand the need for really helpful, customized recommendations.  And we don’t mean the standard “Canon in D”.  We want to advise our couples of the new, old, traditional, and unconventional so they can decide which best matches their style.  Here are just a few we’ve found.  Close your eyes, imagine the moment, and Enjoy!
