Catholic weddings are brink of sacred, lifelong and exciting adventure together. It is the happiest and busiest time where beautiful, auspicious and joyful memories are made and replenished. Good music selection at wedding makes it even more memorable and remarkable in terms of enjoyments and fun.
The wedding music should be such that it should reflect the purpose and help the assembly to pray and thank god for the wishes and love he showers on us. In catholic weddings pop and rock songs even with spiritual theme are not considered appropriate.
Wedding music involves mainly three kinds of tracks: recessionals, processionals and preludes. In this ambient music holds the arena while invitees are being seated and ceremony is started whereas prelude music is mainly light in nature. Next is processional, where entry of bride, bridal party and family is extended. This music consists of lively songs and lyrics which reflects happiness and joy.
But before choosing the playlist there are some points to be kept in mind as songs chosen should be comfortable within the limit of area, guests and the wedding theme. It should also be according to the space allocated like huge spaces won’t do with just a small band and duo singers or huge brass quintet and a small chapel will not match. Also instruments like cello, guitar and violin can enhance the aroma there.
Vocalists can also be a part of your wedding entertainment. Also violin, piano or flute included with it can enhance it even more. One more thing that should be noted is that the ratio of musicians to guests should be stable to avoid awkwardness later. A duo or trio performances can also be remarkable. Also in between these silent notes DJ with mikes and amplifier will add more fun to weddings.

Then reception entrance music is chosen for entry in wedding party row of the couples. It is a good time to tone the party in the right mood. Then there is first dance that will have the perfect song on the list. Then there is father –daughter dance, where daughter-father love is bonded even more strongly. It is traditional and lovely. Reception music depends on integrated playlist and even DJ amplifiers. It can include pop hits and rock music.
