Music can easily set the tone for the whole event. For a ring ceremony, music is typically slower and romantic. This creates for a more dramatic moment while you walk down the aisle to your (almost) spouse. Some brides perfectly time their procession song so that they start their walk down the aisle at a specific part in the song. They do it where the song gets bigger and louder and the words being sung will flow in order to create the perfect moment. 

The song to choose:




Luncheon Music

Typically for a luncheon, brides like to keep it classy and casual. This can either be done by a jazzy playlist or a playlist created with the perfect background music. Luncheons tend to be more intimate with fewer guests, or just those super important people
