Understanding Your Musical Taste

The first note in our symphony of planning is understanding your musical taste. Are you inclined towards the soulful strumming of acoustic guitars, or does the infectious energy of a funk band set your heart racing? Consider the genres that you and your beloved enjoy, as well as the atmosphere you wish to cultivate on your special day.

Genre Considerations

  • Classical – Timeless and elegant, perfect for a traditional ceremony.
  • Jazz – For a touch of sophistication and a lively cocktail hour.
  • Pop – Upbeat and popular hits to fill the dance floor.
  • Indie – For a unique, contemporary vibe.
  • Celtic – To honor Scottish heritage with a local twist.
