Please help!!


We aren’t getting married until next year & I know there’s 1 million and 1 other things to think about and look at BUT how do you choose what songs to use for the entrance, signing of certificate and the exit! We haven’t got a song or songs that mean something to us both…. I’m already stressing over everything and we haven’t even started yet! 😂😩

    It doesn't have to be anything super meaningful to both of you.

    If you individually have songs that are special to you, then you could pick one to come in and one to go out. Or you could look for music that reflects your families or backgrounds - my OH and I are mixed Scots & Welsh heritage, so we picked Scottish and Welsh music. Is there a holiday location you particularly love? Maybe music from that country? Favourite songs from loved ones who are no longer with you can be a nice way of paying tribute to them.

    Otherwise, just google for suggestions of appropriate wedding music and pick the ones you like the sound of most. Not everything in your wedding has to have some strong relevance to you. Sometimes it can be as simple as 'we need music to walk out to and this sounded ok'.

    We will be playing Christian Worship and classical music. We have to create our playlists on Amazon or something. Ask your venue what type of music system they have so you know how to hand over your music choices. We are chipping away at is slowly.

    Just keep in mind that the songs for a civil ceremony - (not in a Church) cannot include any religious lyrics, even to the extent of Robbie Williams "angels"

    When choosing you can pick any section of a song that you like and it only needs to be 30-40 seconds long unless you are sending 10 bridesmaids up the isle first, same for coming out but maybe longer as it can be played as everyone else leave.

    The signing part also only a couple of mins needed.

    When choosing mostly it sounds best if you can leave the intro running as you hide behind the door and then walk in on the start of the lyrics otherwise you could reach the top and the music will stop before the important lyrics start.

    Mostly the entrance would be romantic style music and then a more upbeat one for the exit.

    Although I have seen a bride walk down the isle to the imperial march from star wars. you know the one it goes. der der der dud de du dud de der Smiley xd

    One thing though if your venue is the Donington one that you mentioned before then that is a longer than average isle in the barn so you may need to add a few seconds to my timings. Not so in the smaller second wedding ceremony room they have though as that is much shorter.

    We left our music choices till a couple of months before as we didn’t know either, but we’d both been writing down songs we liked till that point. We stuck them all in a tab on our excel spreadsheet and then just worked through what we liked the most & what fit the best. Then spent an evening listening to music and figuring it out. The up the aisle song came from one of our favourite films. The recessional song came from one of our favourite bands. The signing the registry song was one we just both really liked and had made a note of separately that seemed to fit with that moment.


    Hope you’re able to destress & find a way to make picking music fun. Spend an evening making a list and dancing with your partner xx
