Music plays a very important role in a wedding ceremony so you should select the ceremonial songs for your special occasion that are right for you. Music sets the mood and adds to the whole romance of the ceremony.
You may well have favourite songs in mind but you need to plan when they should be played and how it works in with the ceremony as a whole. There are prelude songs played while guests wait for the ceremony to start, wedding party processional songs, bride's processional songs, interlude and recessional songs (signing the register), and upbeat happy songs to be played after the wedding party has left and the guests get ready to leave.
If you want to make it extra special, then why not choose a live music band or group, though you must check with the venue first to understand any possible restrictions.
Here’s some great musicians based in the West Midlands from places like Birmingham, Wolverhampton, Coventry, Worcestershire, Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Warwick, Shrewsbury and Stratford, whom you might want to get in touch with...
Don't forget to mention Your West Midlands Wedding magazine when contacting a musician.
