Choosing a song to walk down the aisle might not seem too much of a concern because it is hardly an issue but if you didn't include this step in your wedding planning, it can indeed become one. Here are some tips on how to get prepared.
Put it on your to-do list. Yes, you have to set some time aside to plan your music. Take time to do some consultation with your DJ or whoever is in charge of the music. Don't let it be the last-minute rush which can lead to you choosing a song that does not fit the moment or the DJ playing music hurting the ambiance you are going for.
Don't be bound by the traditions. We all know of the traditional songs that get played when walking down the aisle but you do not need to stick to just those. You can be different and choose a song that is appropriate both in length and the occasion. We all have different tastes and preferences, not only in choosing the venue, the setting, and the cake but also in the song to be played during this moment. Make it worthwhile by playing something you really want.
The song should set the mood. The song that you choose should definitely set the mood for the whole event. Your song needs to be both romantic and emotional. It does need to make the moment magical and enhance all the emotions that you should feel when walking down the aisle to meet your future husband or wife.
Consider discussing the song with your future husband or wife. The songs to be played at your wedding should be a common decision between you and your partner. It should be special to both of you and make you feel that the moment you've been waiting for is finally here.
Surprise your guests. If you want the moment to be more emotional, let the song be a surprise to your guests. That way, they will really get into the moment especially when the song is romantic, and they know it too.
Don't forget to choose a song to walk out to. This is something that happens to many couples. They forget about the "outro." Don't let this happen to you. Plan the song to walk down the aisle at the same time that you are figuring out the other songs for your wedding. Don't let it be just a random song because the outro song is just as important as the rest of the songs.
