Not sure about the music? Need Suggestions? NO PROBLEM!
The Prelude Music is about 30-40 minutes of music prior to Bride walking down the aisle. During this time guest will be seated. The Groom and Groomsmen walk out with the Minister, Bridesmaids, Flower Girl, and the Ring Bearer will also make their way down the aisle.
During this time in the ceremony we recommend classical music. Some of the most recognized melodies for this were witten by Bach, Handel, Beethoven and many more.
The processional is the most important selection of music for your ceremony. You will need to decide if you are a traditional Bride or a contemporary Bride.
If you choose traditional, them you will want to consider the "Bridal Chorus" (Here Comes the Bride). If you choose contemporary we have selections of songs that you can browse through. Some of the favorites are Kenny G "Forever in Love", Louis Armstrong "What a wonderful world", or even newer songs like Shania Twain's "From this moment". A few perfect songs for walking down the aisle.
The recessional music is played after the Bride & Groom are pronounced Husband and Wife, they kiss and then introduced as "Mr. & Mrs. John Smith". The traditional Wedding March or any favorite can be selected for this as the Bride & Groom exit.
If Platinum Sounds Entertainment has done your Wedding or is just doing the reception the music selection is endless. Remember Platinum Sounds Entertainment works for you and will provide any music you wish. Listed below are some events to think about.
It is a good idea to have music playing when the first guest arrives at the reception hall. The D.J. should already be set up, dressed appropriately and playing some soft music.
The great thing about the Cocktail hour is it gives the Bride and Groom time to take some pictures with their photographer. The D.J. should play soft enough music to encourage conversation among guest.
Bridal Party Introduction and Grand Entrance
Once the Bridal Party arrives, the DJ or MC of your choice can ask that everyone go into the dining area to be seated. The D.J. or MC of your choice can begin the introductions. First the Bridal Party, starting with the Bride's parents, Groom parents, Flower Girl, Ring Bearer, Bridesmaids, Groomsmen, Best Man, Maid of Honor and finally the Bride and Groom.
Bridal Party music suggestions:
Get ready for this - 2 Unlimited
Austin Powers Theme - Soundtrack
Sand storm - Darude
or even a selection of your choice.
Once the Bride and Groom have been formally introduced and the drinks have been poured, it is time for the official toast to begin by the Best Man. The toast should be creative, funny, touching and memorable. Most importantly, the Best Man should raise his glass and actually propose a toast after his speech. Often times a nudge to remind the Best Man should help things move along.
After the toasting the dinner begins and the music should remain soft. Platinum Sounds Entertainment suggestions are soft jazz, soft pop or classical music. This is a great time for the Bride and Groom to walk around and say hello to their guest and family.
The first dance should be a song that is dear to both the Bride and Groom. Most have a song picked out but we can help you select a song if needed.
Bride and Father Dance
Groom and Mother Dance
The second dance is traditionally reserved for the parents. We can do the Bride and her Father start the dance with the Groom and Mother joining in or we can do seperate dances.
Bridal Party Dance
The third dance is often reserved for the Bridal Party. This includes the parents of the Bride and the Groom and everyone officially in the Bridal Party.
The third dance is over and now it is time to get the party started! It is now time to get everyone on the dance floor. This should be an upbeat and fun song for everyone! Listed below are a few reccomendations for the first song.
Brick House - Commodores
Celebration - Kool and the gang
Everybody dance now - C&C Music Fsctory
Love Shack - B-52's
Play that Funky Music - Wild Cherry
Wild Thing - Ton Loc
After dancing for 45 minutes to an hour the Bride and Groom should get ready to cut the cake. The D.J. or MC of your choice will announce that everyone gather around the cake. Pick a song to be played during this time to set the mood.
If you plan on "smashing cake" the song "Hit me with your best shot" is always a winner!
Next the Bride should be ready to "toss the boquet". This special tradition is suppose to choose the next Bride-to-be!
A few songs to choose from:
Girls just wanna have fun - Cindi Lauper
All I wanna do is have some fun - Sherryl Crow
Man! I feel like a woman - Shania Twain
or a song of your choice.
The D.J. or MC of your choice at this time should announce for all bachelors to step on the dance floor for the Garter Toss. As the Groom takes the Garter off here are a few songs to choose from if you do not have one in mind.
Oh Yeah! - Yello
I'm too sexy - Right Said Fred
The D.J. unless instructed otherwise should start off with something slow as your guest may still be eating and talking. The D.J. should now play the music selected by the Bride and Groom. The D.J. should also be willing to take request and follow the crowd with the music.
Consider Choosing a last dance song. The final song should be announced by the D.J. or MC of your choice and the Bride and Groom should participate. The song can be dedicated to the Bride and groom from everyone.
Remember Platinum Sounds Entertainment to have a fun and memorable wedding!
Hope to see you soon!
