Planning Your Wedding Cocktail, Dinner and Reception Music
What type of atmosphere do you wish to create with the music?
Do you want the music to represent a particular theme? Cocktail music is often upbeat and celebratory. Dinner music can be quiet and romantic. After Dinner do you want your musicians to get your guests out on the dance floor? Communicating you ideas with your musicians will allow you and your musicians to work together to create a repertoire that will reflect the style of music you want. Your musician’s personality matters! You want to feel comfortable with them and know that they understand you. Once you find musicians that you ‘click’ with, the music planning will be fun!
You’re almost done! There are just a few more details to cover.
1. Does your musician need to provide his/her own instrument or is the instrument available at the ceremony location? For example, if you hire a pianist, find out if there is a piano available and how much it costs to reserve. What is the sound quality of the instrument? How often is it tuned? Your musician should be taking care of all these details, but you’ll want to make sure that is the case. If a piano is not available, you may wish to rent one from a local music store or find out if your pianist will provide a portable piano.
2. Do you have vocalists that will need accompaniment? Let your ceremony musician know.
3. Some clergy and churches are selective as to the type of music they allow, be sure and check this out with the person officiating at your wedding.
4. Some facilities and churches have sound technicians, and some even require that you hire one for your event. You would want to hire a sound technician as soon as possible to insure his/her availability for your event.
Ok once you have chosen your musicians, finalized your music selections and covered the details, you can relax knowing that your musicians will create the perfect setting for your remarkable wedding!
