Before, during, and after your wedding ceremony you’re going to want to have some music. Whether you’re a fan of classical or you can’t life without a little rock and roll, picking the perfect melodies are a must.

During the reception, why not hire a string player of some kind. Stringed instruments make great background melodies. Think guitar, harp, cello, or violin. Better yet, get one of your oh-so-talented friends to strike up the tunes.

Hiring a wedding singer is perhaps the most traditional route for your reception’s harmonies. If that’s not quite your bag, hire a band! Or, if you’re particularly talented, play a song or two yourself. Don’t have the skills or the dollars? Make a mix of your favorite songs to have played during your reception dinner and dancing.

If you’re going that route, why not make your CD into a present for your guests to take home? Putting such a personal touch on your gifts will warm your guests’ hearts, especially if your song choices are particularly heartfelt. Wrap it all up in a pretty package, and everyone will have you two on their minds whenever hear your mix.
