The Perfect Wedding Playlist: Balancing Ballads and Beats
Updated: Apr 9, 2021
Have questions about what music to choose for your special day? We can help but first I want to challenge you to think about the mood you want to set and your personal style.
Are you looking for an elegant and tranquil ceremony where your guests can relax to traditional favorites? Then classical choices might be a better fit. We can suggest a list for all the parts of your ceremony and even your cocktail hour.
Are you more attracted to romantic standards such as those by Frank Sinatra (Way You Look Tonight), Louis Armstrong (What a Wonderful World), Elvis (Can't Help Falling in Love), Andrea Bocelli (Con Te Partiro), and The Beatles (All You Need is Love)? These classic love songs never go out of style and have sweeping melodies for any romantic occasion.
Are you one of those that has a flare for laid back hits by Ed Sheeran (Perfect), Israel Kamakawiwo'ole (Somewhere Over the Rainbow), James Taylor (How Sweet It Is to Be Loved By You), and The Beach Boys (Wouldn't it Be Nice)? Or are you more into more modern hits by Christina Perri (A Thousand Years), John Legend (All of Me), Bruno Mars (Just The Way You Are), and Coldplay (Yellow and Viva La Vida)?
We can suggest tunes that make your guests feel like your wedding day is a vacation for them too!
Of course you may want a mix of classical and contemporary tunes to reflect your more eclectic tastes and your desire to "switch gears" from a formal ceremony to a more energetic and joyful cocktail hour and reception. It's all up to you. Let us know what's your style and if you can't find exactly what you are looking for we can arrange up to two tunes for your event at no extra charge to you. It just needs to be something that will work for our instruments.
Have fun planning your music. Reflect on your style and then call us if you need help. We want it perfect for your big day!
