Thanks to the experience in the wedding sector, I realized how much choosing the right music for your wedding is not so obvious. More than a simple side dish: one of the main ingredients to create a suggestive and effective atmosphere for your guests. For this reason, having a list of songs to offer to those who will take care of this aspect should be taken into consideration.
In some moments of the festivities, music will be indispensable. Any examples? The exit from the church, the arrival at the location or the dance of the bride and groom. Make everyone present dream, release tension and have fun with your loved ones: that's why you need romantic and non-romantic songs for the wedding party. You can choose significant songs for your love story, customizing the musical experience to the maximum, or completely indulge yourself. Usually, as a time, the photographer will indicate the sunrise or sunset for the optimal light conditions that will guarantee soft shadows and an ideal atmosphere.
But where to start? How to choose in the infinite musical universe available? I struggled myself when I had to come up with a selection for my big day. So here are some tips and ideas for titles, divided by musical genre and suitable for all types of spouses, from the most romantic to rockers.
With a slightly vintage flavor
The great classics of the past always satisfy everyone, even the elderly. These are songs that have made history and that stand the test of time, especially suitable for romantic spirits who do not disdain the atmosphere of the past.
