== Do, Play Music that Sets the Mood ==
The kind of music that you decide to play at your marriage ceremony should be one that sets the mood of your wedding because music has a pervading influence on your wedding.
It should be music that has your expression as well as that of your bride. The music should be able to express your personality, personal taste and the general theme of your wedding.
== Don’t Play Secular Music in Church ==
Where are you going to hold your wedding? As you might be aware, most churches don’t allow secular music to be played in the church; they rather prefer religious kind of music. If you and your pride want to sing a duet, then select a song that agrees with your faith requirements. Most churches have excellent religious songs that you can play in your wedding.
== Do Hire a DJ for Recorded Songs ==
You have two options of the kind of music that can play at your wedding; recorded verses live band. If you settle for recorded songs, hire the services of a DJ that has experience with wedding ceremonies.
The best thing about having you’re a DJ is that you can request him to play your favourite songs. You can also explain to him the kind of mood and entertainment you would like to pervade in your wedding.
== Don’t Hire Amateur Bands ==
Remember, the wedding's focus is on you and your bride and not the music or the band that will play in your ceremony. The music or band is there to complement your big day.
However, if you decide instead of a DJ; to hire a live band to play in your reception, stay clear of amateur bands. The problem with amateur bands is that they would wish to make a statement and they are likely to steal the show. Instead, choose a professional group that has experience playing at weddings and knows what they are doing.
== Do Play Music from Your Family’s Favourite ==
Your grandparents and parents are special people that you cannot overlook at the best day of your life. At your wedding is the best opportunity to play your parents' favourite music. Find out what their wedding song was and let it be played just to remind them of their good old days.
== Do Play Background Music ==
Remember this, the guests you invited will like to have some time to mingle a bit and talk about how great your wedding or vows were or even catch up with old friends or make new friends. Play music that will help your marriage ceremony thrive. Play songs that when your friends and family will hear it later will stop to think and remember your wedding.
