Most people will tell you it is the most important day of your life. You and your future spouse talk and plan for hours. Even the mothers get involved in picking out the most flattering dress, the best colors, the tastiest cake and the perfect place. Wedding songs, however, can be the most difficult part of a wedding to plan. Music not only touches the mind, it reaches to the depths of a person's emotions. It affects attitude and can either make an ordinary moment precious or ruin what should have been sacred. Wedding songs must especially be chosen carefully if they are to be played during the ceremony.
During a wedding ceremony, the mood is naturally solemn and joyous at the same time. Wedding songs will either cement the atmosphere or bring distraction into it. Traditionally, wedding songs played during a ceremony do not have words. By doing without a singer, the chance of an overly sentimental song becoming humorous is avoided. The musician playing the wedding songs is also extremely important. It is a good idea to hire a professional instead of allowing a stage-loving family member to fumble through the music you love. In order to avoid hurt feelings, assign that person to the guestbook or something.
