- Wedding: February 2014
We’re doing a 40s-vintage themed wedding, so all our music is going to fit the era. I’m looking for some suggestions for pre-ceremony music…we’re using Glenn Miller for our procession, etc. and I’m wondering if doing more upbeat songs with lyrics would be fine for the pre-ceremony stuff.
Also…should we start the music a half hour or 45 minutes before the ceremony? My family is full of habitual early-arrivers, but it’s hard to tell exactly how early. What’s standard for that kind of thing? I’m looking at this CD for pulling our music from for that chunk of time: http://www.amazon.com/Songs-That-Got-Through-Wwii/dp/B0000032SP/ref=pd_ts_m_2?ie=UTF8&s=music. We would take the slightly more depressing ones off, haha. I think it’d be kind of fun to use wartime music to set the tone for the evening.
We’re dealing with the music ourselves–iPod/laptop, no DJ–which is why I’m starting to figure this stuff out now. 🙂
Any input on timing or what sorts of songs we should look at is greatly appreciated!
