I was just curious about what is customary in terms of music before the processional begins. My church asked me to make a playlist for before, but I'm not entirely sure what those should be. I would love to use Christian songs but I'm a little lost!
This is completely based on your personal preference! Weddings I’ve been at previously typically had something instrumental in the background for ambience.
Will you have musicians playing this music? Or will you use a playback?
If you’re using playback music, such as Spotify, as the previous poster mentioned, Vitamin String Quartet is a great option! Or you could find some instrumental version of the Chrisitan songs you love and create a playlist!
MY dad usually plays the playlist he created that has covers by vitamin string quartet. I made a playlist on youtube of covers by Brooklyn Duo. (husband and wife piano & cello.. so beautiful) and downloaded the songs onto my laptop so I can give my DJ my pre-wedding playlist.
I think this is more common in church ceremonies rather than at venues. Can't you just ask them to play regular church tunes? haha Or just look up some christian songs/instrumental music! Most venue weddings I have been to they didn't start music til the processional started.
Hi all, we're doing VSQ for the seating. Found some really great light rock/ indie/ folk compilations on youtube - Alexrainbirdmusic, we're using one playlist in it's entirety for cocktail hour and maybe another for dinner.
I am having a live string duo play Nintendo nes music, rock songs and contemporary pop songs. It's whatever you want. It's meant to be relaxing and fun. The purpose is to keep everyone from looking around and getting anxious. It also gives a nice conversational point.
