Are you planning a wedding in Baltimore County, Baltimore City, or beyond? Start the planning process early, and avoid making these common wedding music mistakes!
Forgetting Pre-Ceremony Music
Another common mistake is assuming that the music doesn’t have to start until the ceremony does. Hopefully, all of your guests are there and seated before the ceremony starts, and more than likely they will get there about 20-30 minutes early. That time will go faster if there’s music playing, so talk to your DJ about starting music about 20 minutes before your ceremony.
Not Communicating with the DJ
If there is a song you absolutely have to hear, make sure your Baltimore DJ knows about it. Don’t just assume that he or she will have it with them on the day of your wedding. Similarly, for a band, make sure they know about the song ahead of time so they can learn it if needed. If there are things you definitely don’t want to hear, you should make sure you discuss that ahead of time too.
Choosing the Wrong First-Dance Tune
Choosing the first dance song may be the hardest decision you have to make, or you may already know what song it should be. Either way, pop that baby on the iHome and give it a run through. If you love a song but think it’s too long for a first dance, Raptor Productions can trim it down to 3 to 3 and a half minutes!
Neglecting Venue Rules
Another common mistake is forgetting to talk to the venue about any music rules they may have. There are likely rules about volume but there also may be rules about the type of music you can play. Some churches, for instance, only allow traditional or religious musical selections. Make sure you ask before you set your heart on something.
