No, it doesn’t matter at all.

None of my songs go together, but it matches who we are. So should yours

I don’t think it matters at all. There aren’t rules, just choose songs you like! We are all over the place even through the processional.  Our processional so far is a mashup of songs we like. I’m thinking seating of the mothers will be “Sweet Child O Mine” either the original or an acoustic version, then “Better Together”-Jack Johnson for the rest of the wedding party and an instrumental version of “Starlight” for when I come out. The recessional will be “Hard To Concentrate”- Red Hot Chili Peppers.

The Bridal Party Entrance will be “Fall Back Down”- Rancid and our entrance might be “Party Hard”- Andrew W.K. These are both loud and upbeat but will hopefully get the party started! Our first dance is “I was made for you”- Rivers Cuomo then it will slow down with our father/daughter and mother son dances, which are classics that our parents chose. Do what you want and what fits you guys!

I think having a change in terms of music styles is fun! The guests won’t really expect it and you’ll appeal to a larger variety of people.

Not only does the music not have to match, I’ve never even heard of it matching. In every wedding where I can remember it, the music was very different at the different parts of the day.

Of course they don’t have to match! They are all different occasions with different vibes. Go with whatever makes you happy!
