Hi! Are you involved with weddings or parties? .
Let me help you keep these projects easy and hassle-free. .
I help people plan their music. And I usually offer helpful advice that might spare YOU from a lot of stress, too. .
Selecting wedding music should be far simpler than many make it. Here’s why. .
Many wedding landmarks call for music — pre-ceremony, processional, recessional, cocktail hour, dinner, first dance, last dance, and more. So many choices. So many possibilities. .
Here’s a popular choice for a garden wedding: #TheMagnoliaJazzBand is creating a soft, upbeat background for cocktails at the #FeltonGuild, in Felton, CA. .
When they select their wedding music, the happy couple assembles their options and then decides how to choose.
Sounds easy. So why does the process often become difficult? You’re right: too many choices and unclear reasons for deciding. When I help people select music, my job centers on these two problems: .
First, I help the bride and groom search for songs. Personal favorites or traditional songs that will create the mood they want. .
Second, I help them clarify how to decide. Searching easily produces a long list of options. Often too numerous to make deciding easy, unless they have clear basis for when to say Yes or No.
Most often I recommend that people ”Keep it simple”. Especially at the start. This advice should help you, too.
Wedding celebrations often wind up far from simple, of course. But in the beginning, simplicity makes the earliest choices easy to manage. These choices guide all the final musical touches that make their entire celebration memorable.
