Whether you’re exchanging vows in a park with flowers in your hair or wearing the latest European fashions as you gather in a cavernous cathedral, the music you choose for your wedding ceremony should fit your style.
Mendelssohn’s Wedding March is a phenomenal piece of music, but it’s not for everyone. Don’t be afraid to think outside of the box on your wedding day. You may just discover an idea that is much more meaningful and beautiful than going with the “standard” wedding marches and classical music.
How do you find the right music for your style? “The best advice I can give is to listen,” says Aaron Mauldin of Aaron’s DJ Services in Kern County, CA. “Write down an idea if something strikes you that you would like to incorporate into your wedding music. You might hear a song on the radio or at the end of a movie. You might hear the mellow notes of a harp, saxophone, or piano and know that this type of sound is what represents your feelings. Buy CDs and find music that means something to your soul,” he says.
