Keep These Things in Mind Deciding on Wedding Processional Music

August 21, 2019 | Posted in Trends, Weddings

Music is a key element in any New Jersey wedding ceremony. As the bridal party makes a grand entrance, the music is supposed to capture the audience while also tying in with the theme. You don’t want to pick just any song, and with so many great hits out there that represent your love for one another, how do you find the perfect one?

Consider the Venue

When choosing processional music for your wedding, be sure to keep the venue in mind. If you’re getting married in a church, for example, you don’t want to choose music too provocative as it may not be appropriate. If that is the case, perhaps you could consider choosing instrumental music instead.

How cute are they?!

List Your Top 5

If you’re having trouble deciding on processional music for your wedding, you and your fiance should write down your top five songs of all time. Based on those combined 10 songs, choose which ones best fit how you feel or the spirit of the day.

The Tone of the Day

The wedding music helps to set the tone of the ceremony. If you choose a tear-jerker like “Wind Beneath My Wings,” chances are the entire place will be in tears. If you want everyone to smile, a song like “Happy” might be appropriate as it gets the audience bopping in their chairs.

Special Moment

If you still can’t decide on a song for your wedding processional, think about a special moment in your relationship. Think about the first song you heard playing when you went out dancing or during a road trip you took, or choose the number one song from the year you guys first met. Drawing on personal experiences can make the songs you select even more meaningful.

Processional Choreography

Nowadays the bridesmaids and groomsmen don’t just two-step down the aisle. Young couples like the idea of putting a little choreography into the mix. If that is the case, then you’ll want to choose a song they can do the moves to best. 

Choosing the perfect wedding processional music can be hard. Hopefully, we’ve given you some ways to narrow down your options until you’ve found the songs that fit best.
