“Music is the literature of the heart; it commences where speech ends.”
~Alphonse de Lamartine
What better way to express yourself than through music. From ceremony to reception, the music you choose sets the tone for your entire wedding day. There are many ways to personalize your wedding through the music you select. For example, many brides are opting not to walk down the aisle to the traditional wedding march but rather, picking a song that best suits their personality. Make sure to choose a song that captures how you feel about your significant other. Something that represents your relationship and, most of all, makes you feel good about yourself.
Some of the most popular 2010 processional songs include:
“I’m yours” – Jason Mraz
“Come Away With Me” – Norah Jones
“By your Side”– Sade
“Such Great Heights”– Iron and Wine
“You and Me”– Dave Mathews Band
Alternatives to live bands and DJs is becoming your own DJ. This has become a very common practice for our destination wedding couples, as they like to infuse their own musical touch to their big day.
