Whether you are hiring musicians to play live or utilizing your DJ for the ceremony and reception, you have probably put a lot of thought into the music that will act as the soundtrack to the processional at your wedding. In fact, we wouldn’t be surprised if this is something you had figured out before you were ever even engaged! But what about before the ceremony begins? It may seem silly, but think about it: when you attend someone’s nuptials, you arrive before the ceremony starts. While guests are finding their seats and admiring the décor, a lovely and romantic playlist can help set the atmosphere for your special day. We recommend finding 20-40 minutes worth of songs to fill the time, as loved ones are unlikely to be earlier than that.
