Music holds a special place in most events, especially at weddings. Some tracks played during the wedding may hold emotional significance for the couple or the family and may set the mood for the event. Jazz pianist, Andreas Moller shared a guide for choosing the right music for a wedding on his website (http://musiktilbrylluppet.dk/). As a highly experienced party musician, Andreas is able to identify the mistakes many couples make when selecting the music for their event and is able to offer practical tips and tricks when planning the wedding music.
Talking about the significance of music at a wedding, Andreas said: “Music is an important part of any wedding; most couples will have a special song that reminds them of when they first met their first kiss or another special moment in the relationship. Music has a powerful way to connect us with events and generate emotions and feelings. When it comes to organizing music for your wedding, there are many choices of music. The type of music you want on the repertoire list for your wedding will depend on your own personal taste, the type of the actual wedding and the age of the guests. The music for a wedding is an important ingredient and will live long in your guests’ memories if you planned it well.”
Andreas suggests that couples keep in mind their own taste in music and select something that best represents their relationship and the importance of their big day. He believes that at the planning stage couples should not succumb to the pressures of friends and family and focus on selecting the type of music that makes the couple happy. If they are going for live music, they must choose the right musician for them and the ambience they want to create.
Before deciding on a live band, pianist or even a wedding DJ, Andreas advises that couples do their homework and carry out extensive research about their potential choice to avoid any last minute disasters. Read online reviews, ask for references or ask married friend and family for suggestions before narrowing down the ultimate selection. Before reaching a final decision, Andreas recommends conducting interviews which will allow the couples and the musicians to understand each other and get a feel of how well they are able to fulfill the needs of the couple.
