There is so much anticipation, excitement and nerves when a bride walks down the aisle. For the bride this is the moment when all eyes are on them. This is what everything has been building up towards. It is very natural to want everything to be perfect at the wedding. This also applies to the music that you will be walking down the aisle to. This is a very important part of the wedding, so it is important that you get it right.

Here are the do’s and don’ts of choosing a wedding ceremony that works for you.

  • You need to make sure that the music that you pick will set the right mood. There is no doubt that the wedding will be emotional and romantic, the first dance song will be carefully considered so the walking down the aisle song should be too. This song can be instrumental to enhance the moment whilst you walk towards your “to be” husband or wife. There are many London theatre shows that portray the importance of the aisle song.
     
  • Don’t feel the need to be stuck in a box when you are looking for this song. There are many options such as harpists, live bands and soul choirs. You mustn’t forget about recorded music, all you will need to do Is choose the song and the appropriate lyrics.
     
  • Make sure that it is pleasant and comfortable to the attendees of the wedding. You don’t want the sound to be obnoxious or a bit too off beat, it may make the guests unhappy.
     
  • The music should be of slow pace and calming. This will give you a natural rhythm to walk to and will keep your nervous groom calm.
     
  • You must not pick a song in haste as this can be detrimental to the entire wedding. You might think that the song you heard in someone’s car was the perfect song but make sure that you really think about it. Last minute decisions can be very stressful so be sure to pick a song with care to ensure that when you look back you will really appreciate the song choice.
     
  • At weddings there are people of all ages, from babies to old people. You need to make sure that your song choice is appropriate for the audience. If you are having a civil ceremony, you need to make sure that the music isn’t overly religious. If you are having a religious wedding, then there might be some restrictions on what you can play. If you leave enough time, then you can get everything hashed out.
     
  • Everyone mostly focuses on the entrance song and not the exit song, this is just as important. You need to remember to have a memorable song because this is when you walk out hand in hand as a married couple.

The best west end shows such as the wedding singer have many songs that can inspire your wedding. The London show tickets are at a reasonable price if you want to go and see what it is all about.
