Step 1: Choose music medium Choose your music medium. Hire a band, play your iPod, or employ a DJ -- whichever you choose, you will be instrumental in picking the music. Step 2: Pick ceremony music Pick music for the ceremony. Often overshadowed by the funky reception beats, ceremony music is vital. Choose nonobtrusive prelude music to play while the guests are being seated. Tip Consult with your wedding location to ensure they do not have policies on the type of music played during the ceremony. For example, some churches will not allow secular music. Step 3: Pick pre-processional music Pick the pre-processional music, for when close family members and friends are being seated. Try Handel's "Air from the Water Music" suite. Step 4: Selecte processional music Select your wedding party or processional music. The wedding party needs to walk in sync with this piece, so a nice, moderate piece will do. Step 5: Select music for bridal entrance Select a dramatic piece to begin when the bride enters -- a traditional choice is "Wagner's Bridal Chorus." When you and your new spouse are pronounced husband and wife, an excellent departure song is Beethoven's "Ode to Joy." Step 6: Choose first dance song Sit down with your significant other and choose the first dance song. You will remember this one for the rest of your life, so make it meaningful. Tip Many choose standbys like "Can't Help Falling in Love" or "Unchained Melody," but pick what song means the most to you both. Step 7: Pick reception music Get the reception hopping with an eclectic mix of tunes. Talk with your band or DJ about what songs you want as well as what songs you do not want to hear at your wedding. If you take the music seriously, people will be talking about your wedding for a long time. Did You Know? In Ireland, Scotland, and Great Britain, fruitcakes are the traditional choice for most weddings.
