Music creates and environment, especially when it comes to your wedding, so it is crucial that you choose the right songs for the right moments within your ceremony. From your walk down the aisle as an unmarried Bride, to your walk back down the aisle as a newlywed couple, you will have many moments that should be highlighted with a song.
We all know that music comes in a variety, from classical, instrumental, rock and even rap, so there is no doubt that narrowing down your song choices will not necessarily be an easy task. Most importantly, as you choose your songs, make sure that you keep your wedding guests in mind, so that everyone can be pleased with the taste and style that you have chosen.
Every couple wants to feel as though their wedding is the most magical day of their lives, and that their guests too are thoroughly enjoying each and every aspect of it as well.

· STEP 2: Choose your style. The wedding music program you create should represent who you are as a couple and it should bring your love story together!

o From royal weddings, geeky chic and even a Star Wars theme, you have many options in regards to your personalities.
§ For example, if your wedding represents a very classical and traditional approach, you may not want to play a hip hop version of a song for your wedding party to walk down the aisle to.
o If you are a busy couple, and planning music is not really your thing, know that there are tons of resources online which will assist you in gathering some of the top songs for each of your special wedding events.
§ Also, your musician or DJ should be able to walk you through some suitable song choices, as well as help you to know which events should have a special song.
o Most importantly, no matter what type of couple you are, or how you would like your wedding to be portrayed, choose songs that speak to you as a couple…it is your day, and your wedding should certainly reflect your personal interests!
