Music at weddings, an important element for your big day

Imagine arriving at the altar with your favorite song as background music, or imagine a jazz band entertaining the reception…Without a doubt, music at weddigs is very important so that your big day becomes a unique and personalized event.

                THE IMPORTANCE OF CHOOSING MUSIC FOR EVERY MOMENT

It’s very important to choose each piece and to personalize the civil or religious ceremony. Keep in mind what can and cannot be played at religious weddings. While in civil or symbolic ceremonies you have total freedom to choose the pieces that you prefer.

You can also choose with your partner, your favorite music for the entrance to the banquet, the cutting of the cake and the first dance.

If you choose each theme according to your tastes or because that song remembers your first encounter or the first trip together, the day of your wedding will be even more special.

And if you can hire musicians who play live during the ceremony or reception, then success is guaranteed.

A SHOW AS A FINAL TOUCH

Before starting dancing and drinking during open bar, I suggest you to surprise your guests with a flamenco show or a juggling performance. Or if you love magic show, you could hire a magician to entertain the guests with his tricks…

There are many ideas to give that original touch to your big day.

A DJ DURING THE OPEN BAR

It’s very important to hire a dj who can take care of music during the open bar, who knows what musical genres to play and pay attention to what liven up the guests and what does not.

Sometimes couples say that with a Spotify list it’s enough for the open bar…It’s the biggest mistake they can make! Imagine that something is wrong with the speakers, or that the list ends, or that the music you chose doesn’t liven up anyone and you have to change it…Who will do all this? The couple? A friend? Do you think it is appropriate that in a moment where you have to dance, laugh and enjoy, you have to worry about music?

The best solution is that a dj pays attention in every moment so you only have to enjoy.

How to choose wedding favours for your guests

Do you want to give your guests some original and different wedding favours?

In this post I give you some ideas to surprise them on your big day.

FAVOURS RELATED TO YOUR WEDDING THEME

Favours could also follow the same theme that you have chosen for your wedding. For example, if you love decoration with olive and you will use this element in centerpieces, bridal bouquet, etc. you could give your guests small oil bottles personalized with your names and the wedding date.

 

FAVOURS RELATED TO YOUR HOBBIES

Another option would be to choose some favours that represent some of your hobbies or that are related to your work. Think of what you’re most passionate about and leave a favour of you and your partner to your guests.

A WEDDING FAVOUR AS A SOUVENIR FOR YOUR GUESTS

When the couple decides to get married abroad, I love to propose them some typical favours of the place where they have chosen to marry. It’s original, different and something your guests don’t expect.

For example, this summer I planned a wedding for a lovely Italian couple and we prepared some original ceramic coasters, a typical element in Andalucia.

The importance of wedding stationery

Wedding stationery is as important as any other aspect of the wedding planning. Not only for the functions that each element has, but also because invitations, save the date, thank you cards etc. are your cover letter.

WHY IT IS IMPORTANT TO CHOOSE APPROPRIATELY THE WEDDING STATIONERY

The invitation is “the first contact” that your guests will have with your wedding and the best thing is to give a clue about what they will find in your big day.

I always emphasize to couples that they cannot choose the stationery randomly, without considering their own personality and the wedding style they have defined.

Imagine receiving your friend’s invitation in an elegant paper, sophisticated calligraphy, in gold colors, wax seal, wrapped in silk ribbon in pastel colors…And when you arrive at the place of the wedding you are in a farm, surrounded by a decoration in wood, flowers in strong colors, boxes, straw bales and jute tablecloths…A rural wedding definitely!

You will feel a bit confused, remembering the elegant invitation that you received a few months ago, right?

If you had received an invitation with floral prints, or in kraft paper and tied with a string, it would have been much more harmonious, don’t you think so?

Invitation, misssals, seating plan, table numbers, menu, thank you cards, all these graphic elements of your wedding should follow the line and style of your big day, because one of my mottos is that everything that is created in a harmonious way is more beautiful, it looks much more and has coherence with the atmosphere created in your big day.
