Weddings have become big productions these day and one of the most important elements of my work is the actual orchestration of the wedding itself. Just because you have planned something doesn't mean it is going to happen. My team and I are there to carefully manage the flow, transitions and every detail from start to finish.
Through this work, we have developed ways to really enhance a wedding, and concepts to avoid the potential pitfalls. As you prepare for your own wedding, use these insider tips to enhance your day. Some of these tips require asking vendors to take additional steps, but remember, this is your wedding. You need to set the highest expectations for everyone involved!
- Ceremony Music: Ceremony music is as much about group cohesiveness as it is musical pedigree. Musicians that have not played together tend to struggle with starting and stopping songs simultaneously. Quite often, the "head" musician tries to play, track the procession and direct the group at the same time. This results in sloppy ceremony music. You need to have a separate person dedicated to tracking your wedding procession and cueing the head musician. And ideally this person is communicating by walkie or cellphone with another person who is sending the bridal party down the aisle.
