Wedding planning can be quite challenging, since there’s so many details to consider. Luckily, we’re here to help you and save a while, too!

The Ceremony

Wedding ceremonies generally last about 15-25 minutes, based on the officiant and what will be included in the wedding. Remember, your friends and family will be arriving before the wedding starts, so you’ll need your DJ or live performer to begin approximately 10-15 minutes before the wedding starts, to try out the prelude songs. Select 5-7 songs to be performed for the prelude, which will help in the event that not everyone has arrived on time, dressing time is taking longer than expected, etc. Most songs generally last about 3-4 minutes, so this will give you 15- 30 minutes of prelude songs, if needed.

Next, opt for the big event entry song(s). One to three songs should be sufficient, based on the qualifications songs length and the number of people in the big event. Prelude and big event entry songs are generally classical songs, but spend some here we are at making wedding exclusive and pick songs that you love. Next, is the wedding wedding entry song! Select the traditional wedding procession songs, or choose your own preferred songs.

Cocktail Time & Introductions

After the wedding is finish, Mixture Time starts, to allow the several and big event to take pictures. Most partners choose smooth, songs to be performed for the hour (sometimes 1.5 hours). Once Mixture Time is finish, the big event can certainly create their entry. Some partners decide to announce their parents and the entire big event, while others decide to introduce the several only. A songs can be selected for the big event and usually, a different songs is selected for the partners’ introduction.

Dinner & Reception

After the several has been presented, supper usually starts. Most partners perform a mix of smooth, songs, but any music/genre can be performed, based on the partners’ taste and preferences. Some partners decide to be presented and then do the first dances (bride and bridegroom, new bride and father, bridegroom and mother dances) immediately after. Most partners decide to dine, first, then after supper, do the first dances. There are many songs options for these dances (examples of common songs options are listed on another post on our blog). Toasts are also done, during supper. After supper concludes, the first dances can begin, or if they’ve already been done, the oasis will open. Couples should opt for the styles of songs they wish to hear, along with other styles that their family and friends may enjoy. Be sure to tell your band/DJ if you will allow visitors for making requests. Also, specify any “do not perform songs or styles,” to be sure only the qualifications songs you want is performed. A good mixture of songs works best, to ensure everyone will have an enjoyable evening.
