{The Hardest decision of your Big Day...Wedding Music}

When you think about your wedding day, it tends to overwhelm some people thinking about all the decisions that they have to make. All the big decisions like the caterer, the venue, the photographer and all the little decisions like who will escort grandma down the aisle. Almost any bride you ask though, one of the hardest decisions to make about their wedding day is the music. ALL the music from Bridal March, to First Dance to their Exit Song. However, have no fear...We are here to help!


Here are a couple of tips to help you make the best decision for you your big day!

Number 1 ~ Write down any songs that are significant to you and your groom. Seriously write down all of them!! After you have figured out the songs that are most significant to you and your fiancé, then take those songs and narrow them down to the ones that are most appropriate for your wedding day.

Number 2 ~ After you have decided which of the songs are appropriate for your wedding day then you need to look over them and think of which songs are most significant to the two of you. Once you have narrowed it down to the most significant ones, decide which songs woud fit best for the most important moments of your wedding day like your First Dance and your Bridal March.

Number 3 ~ The next step to choosing the music for your wedding day is to envision your wedding day. Close your eyes, listen to each song and see if you can envision your parents, your bridal party or even you walking down the aisle to that song. If you cant envision it, try looking it up on YouTube and see if you can find an instrumental version of the song that might be better suited for your big day. (One of our favorites is The Piano Guys -->> Take this song for example...David Guetta's "Without You" has great words but may not have the best sound for your bridal party to walk down the aisle to, but check out this version by The Piano Guys)

Number 4 ~ After you have gone through all the significant songs that you and your fiancé share, if you still can't quite figure out what songs to choose, start going through your iTunes Library! You are bound to come up with some great choices. (Don't be afraid to mix it up a little and choose some unconventional songs that will have your guests thoroughly a good way!)


Here are a few from my iTunes Library that would make great wedding songs.
