Do a mini rehearsal in your house! See if it feels weird, or if some soft music feels like background, remember you can always have someone turn it down so it’s not interfering

CarolinaCola:  I bet you would be ablet to ask someone to run up and shut it off and then either hang out up there during the ceremony or quietly sneak down after everyone has walked down the aisle. Maybe a young adult cousin or something?

CarolinaCola:  do you have a remote for your ipod?  My iPod dock has a remote that I can use to pause the music, skip songs etc.

I am having an acoustic guitar being played as background music 🙂 I think it will be nice!

I do not see anything wrong with soft music during the ceremony as long as you can speak over it. Like peonyinlove:  said, do a rehearsal at the level you plan to have the music, and see if you are able to speak over it, or it distracts you.

wouldn’t you need volume adjustments? I would think you’d need it to be louder during processional/recessional than you could have it during the remainder of the ceremony? You’d have to talk over it. I’m with PP who mentioned getting an iPod Dock with a remote.
