First of all, you'll need music for the ceremony. This might be to an extent dictated by the setting you are getting married in, especially if it is a church. However, you can still listen to wedding music samples to make sure that you are on the right track. You'll need to use music for when people are being seated, before the wedding actually begins.

You are going to also need to have music for each of the parts of your ceremony. On some occasions, this is in the form of a solo, and sometimes you'll play music. You might want music for the lighting of the unity candle, for important parts of the ceremony, and other times. You'll also need to choose songs for the processional, the bride's entrance, and the recessional. This adds up to a lot of music to find wedding music samples for.

Fun ideas to consider when choosing wedding music.

- Use nontraditional songs for outdoor weddings. A friend of mine had a fabulous idea for an outdoor wedding: Have your bridesmaids walk out to At Last by Etta James! Fun, sassy and chic!

- Change the words of a song to reflect you and your husband! A personalized wedding song! How great is that! (Make sure that the person who is singing it has plenty of time to prepare.)

Take opinions from trusted friends and family members regarding the wedding music that you will be playing on your big day. They will tell you if a particular song you have chosen is not a good one. You should also play the entire music selection a few times before the music so that you are absolutely certain that this is what you wish your wedding band or DJ to play. Your friends and family will remember your wedding for a long time to come as one that was a great deal of fun to attend.
