The musical frame of a wedding, being both a solemn and festive event, needs to be wisely tailored to the bride’s and groom’s tastes.
Exactly like a good makeup, natural and discrete, the wedding-party soundtrack has to accompany every single moment of the event without any interference, creating the perfect atmosphere according to the moment. If accurately chosen and coordinated, it becomes the invisible central thread of the party, precious and necessary to set the proper timing of the event.
• The wedding service
The musical choice for the wedding service, either civil or religious, needs a lot of attention since it is going to represent the notes through which the bride and the groom are about to face the big step in presence of their families and dear ones. That’s why every single moment of the celebration needs to have the appropriate background music. Remember that music is an integral part of such an important day, therefore it has to be accurately chosen and played.
• The cocktail hour
The cocktail hour is when you look at one another furtively and, having a sliver of Parmesan and a glass of sparkling wine, you whisper and make comments on your friend’s dress and the mother-in-law’s shoes. It would be such a pity either to interrupt or simply unsettle such a moment, when the guests, all still upright, start to smell the air. The musical discretion and the right volume are almost essential in such a context; however, it is important to highlight, through the appropriate musical choices, that the cocktail hour represents the transition moment between the solemnity of the ceremony and the playfulness of the party.
• The convivial moment (either lunch or dinner)
In order not to weigh down the hubbub and the buzz that, unfortunately or luckily, inevitably accompany the courses that follow one another, it makes sense to opt for a wired-wireless playlist, chosen by the bride and the groom, if you wish. You may choose to include sporadic moments of live music between courses. The bride and the groom may agree such participation in accordance to their wishes.
According to the location and the tables arrangement, and if the spouses wish so, you may opt for a constant background of live music with an accurate chosen repertoire, which needs to be a company for the guests without being intrusive at the same time. Even in this case, we could start to invite the audience and the guests of honour themselves to enjoy their first dance, the one with their parents, the best man and the maid of honour… and so on…
If properly held in your hands, music can intensify the flavours of the dishes, the smell of flowers, the bride’s and the groom’s happiness.
• The open bar
From the moment the open bar is open, your thought will exclusively be to run wild and leave any restraint under the table to get along with the pumps and high-heeled shoes. Usually, rhythms, volumes and alcoholic level remarkably increase. Thanks to the right selection of appropriate music, you will see the 75-year-old grandma dancing along with the 16-year-old niece who has a nose ring. For everyone’s happiness and spouses’ peace of mind.
• Special moments
The special moments are those ones that, traditionally, need to be musically highlighted and emphasized: the Bride’s and the Groom’s entrance, the first dance as a married couple, the dance with parents… Music will be nothing more than a catalyst of emotions and attention towards those ones who are the real and effective stars of the day.
