31 Dec 2018 Wedding Music: Aisle Walk Songs
What a doozy of a year 2018 was. We soundtracked more weddings than ever before and we properly hit our stride – completing our first full year – with the addition of an in-house modern civil marriage celebrant, and our unprecedented Celebrant+Soundtrack service.
But… this blog is about you. Specifically the music YOU chose to soundtrack the key moments of your best day ever. Maybe it was the fact that we simply attended more weddings this year, or maybe it’s a sign of the times, but we reckon 2018 saw us playing less ‘wedding’ music and more music that our couples truly madly deeply just love. That’s not to say that every song was super-fresh or uber-underground, but for most key moments (ie. aisle walk, registry signing, bridal recessional, reception entrance, cake cut, first dance, farewell), there was a pretty awesome mix of classics from eras past as well as current radio spinners.
If your wedding song choices make these lists, or if they don’t, that ain’t no thang. This blog series is just a bit of Wedding Music FYI.
The important message is pick what you want, regardless of how weddingy, or un-, it may be.
Anyway, as Calvin Harris might say…
No, not It was acceptable in the eighties… rather, This is what you came for…
