Whether you are hiring live musicians for your wedding or creating a playlist for your Ipod, the musical selections are an integral part of your wedding ceremony. There are so many choices, and so many different genres to choose from. We get so excited thinking of all of the ways you can mix and match, to create a totally individual and unique experience for your trip down the aisle on your special day. At Starlight Orchestras, we are happy to be a resource for couples’ planning the musical program for their ceremonies.
You can choose from the traditional classics, chamber music, opera music, film score music, Broadway, jazz standards, rock, pop, alternative, ethnic, on and on. You can have an entirely classical ceremony, or you can include one of your favorite Cold Play songs. You can do a program full of Broadway love songs with a dramatic opera piece for the Bride’s entrance. You can have one song for all the marchers, or a different song for every person. Check for updates on this blog monthly, as we often post specific ceremony playlists from our recent weddings.
We have compiled some lists to get the juices flowing and start the thoughts rolling. Click on the links below to view our most current lists. And please feel free to “add a comment” at the end of this article and tell us some of YOUR favorites.
Our string trios, quartets, and larger Custom Ensembles set the tone for a magical evening of romance and magic. The instrumentation, the musicians, and the music selections are handpicked for each event, making every evening distinctly different from all others. When you book a Starlight Custom Ceremony Ensemble, we invite you to a specific “music meeting” where we help map out the entire processional and then assign the different song selections. Once the music is chosen, we then advise you what instruments will present most effectively. The process is exciting and fun, and the result is a unique and very special beginning to a new chapter in your lives! And whether we perform at your wedding, or merely offer you this lists of ceremony music suggestions to give you some ideas, we are thrilled to be a part of your most important day!
