Choosing Your NJ Wedding Ceremony Music – Ask the Pianist

Choosing your nj wedding ceremony music can be fun. It does, however, require a little careful thought on your part.

I don’t have to tell you…there are so many different decisions that need to be made when you are planning your wedding day, and this is also true of the nj wedding ceremony music that will be played for the ceremony itself.  I happen to be one of the busiest wedding pianists in the metro NY/NJ area, and I talk with brides-to-be almost every day about this very topic.  I also perform lots of different types of ceremony music, so I thought I would share some ideas with you from conversations with brides just like you.

While it is certainly possible for you to go with musical selections that are traditional, many brides wish to include their own personal ‘likes and dislikes’ for this very important music that will be played and remembered for years to come. After all, these are songs that you will look back on and remember one of the most important days of your life. Choosing your nj wedding ceremony music, therefore, requires a little careful thought on your part.

One of the first things that you can do which will help you in choosing your music is to think about the surroundings of the occasion itself. For example, an outdoor beach wedding would give you a lot of flexibility as far as the music you are able to use, while a wedding held in a more traditional location like a church would probably give you fewer choices. By matching the style of music to the style of the occasion, you will help to make the walk down the aisle something that seems to fit together seamlessly.

Your wedding pianist can provide a number of different song selections for your New Jersey wedding ceremony music. At times, this is going to be a list of traditional or classical music that can easily be played by a wedding pianist. If you’re going with something out of the ordinary, however, you will want to make sure that you give the musician your overall plan early on in order for him to be able to prepare adequately and well in advance for the occasion.

You can also ask your wedding musician for suggestions on what types of music to play before and during the wedding ceremony. At times, your musician may be able to give you a general idea of the types of ceremony music that are usually played at your type of wedding. An experienced musician should be able to give you specific suggestions, and even help you to think along the lines that you may not have considered before. It’s always good to think ‘outside the box’ to begin to envision how your ceremony will play out.

Don’t overlook the importance of choosing your NJ wedding ceremony music wisely.  Not only is it something that will set the tone for this special day of yours, it is also something that will be remembered for many years to come by many people, most importantly, you and your fiancé.  Here is a list of wedding songs that may be appropriate for many wedding ceremonies.
