The Important Culture in Music
Ceremonies comprise a big part of our lives, so is music which is normally one of the most important components of any ceremony. This means that careful selection of the right genre and style of music is paramount to a success ceremony.
Nonetheless, it all boils down to the type of ceremony, guest invited and the preferences of the host. But importantly, you want your guest to get entertained and feel welcome.
As much as today most people having any celebratory event may leave all to a hired event organizer / planner to do the deciding, it works miracle if you as a host(s) is at a position to make the decision of what kind of music you want your guest entertained with. The task may be an uphill task as first because the selections you want need to identify the music played with the theme of your ceremony but with a little more researching you can make you ceremony absolutely elegant.
The Grand Wedding Music Which Sealed our Bond
This is what happened to me when I got married to my husband 3 years ago. We had planned everything well from start to ending, but there were some areas of our wedding schedule that I greatly differed with him, though I gave in to his demand in the end.
It was all about music. I like music, but I bet he loves music. He had made some selections which were to be played during our wedding ceremony but I felt that they were never the right choices; though time proved me wrong.
The two sessions that I differed with much was the music to be played during the wedding prelude as well as the procession. For the prelude, he had chosen some classic hits dating back to the 70’s. Though they were all love songs and apparently love songs, I had this feeling that they may not relate to most of the invited guest, most of whom were young people about my youthful age.
Guess what? I was absolutely wrong. The 30 or so minutes that the prelude songs that he had chosen: hits like ‘Saving All My Love for You’ by Whitney Houston and ‘Crazy for You’ by Madonna really made the guest lively as they flowed in and were ushered to their seats. Whenever I look at the wedding video and see how the guests were humming to the songs, I realize how wrong I was to object them.
The Climax Music Which Knocked Every one of Their Seats
Then there were the procession songs that he chose. They comprised of local traditional music from a live band, I felt that this would be a bit more old-fashioned, but it too worked miracles as the tunes changes for each set of the attendants walked down the aisle- the ushers had there’s, the bridesmaids and then the bride-me. All was marvelous.
The postlude music carried the day. It was a mixture of newly released music hits and other celebratory music which really made the guest feel part of the wedding ceremony as they all rose from the sits to join in the music which played till past midnight.
I still wonder why my husband decided to be a banker given his love for music.
