Wedding Elements: Music

Regardless of personal expression, aesthetic purposes or just background music, music is one of the elements that makes a wedding fantastic, for you and your guests.

It sets the pace and rhythm to your wedding. It tells you when it’s time for the first dance, the second march-in, or how long your yam seng should be. It helps to notify the guest to quieten down, instead of the emcee clearing their throat, trying to get everyone’s attention, only to tell them it will start in 15 minutes.

It can paint the picture of your love story for your guests. It is just like the soundtrack of a romantic movie. Some musicians can even compose an entire song based on your love story!

Impressed your guests? Check. A memento from your wedding? Check.

So, How should you plan your playlist?

A simple setlist would be:

  • Reception Entrance
  • First March-in
  • Lunch/Dinner
  • Cake-cutting
  • Second March-in
  • Champagne Pouring

Do keep in mind that the music you put on changes the ambience and atmosphere of your venue. It may sound like a lot of work, but if you start early and start with your favourites and existing playlists, and everything will come out naturally.
