"What Wedding Songs Should I Choose?"

wedding couple Bridal couples (OK, mostly the bride!) who are trying to choose their wedding songs often ask me, a soloist and harpist, that question. And my answer is nearly always the same........it depends!

No, I'm not trying to cause confusion, but several factors must be considered before you can choose the best wedding songs for you. Here are a few:

  • Is the wedding and/or reception to be held indoors or outdoors? Will it be in a church, a hall, a park gazebo, or on a beach?

  • Is your wedding style formal or informal?
  • Do you prefer traditional wedding music or the more contemporary wedding songs?
  • What instruments will be available to perform your music? For example, an organ is unlikely if your wedding is in a gazebo beside a lovely lake featuring graceful swans. Perhaps a harp, a string quartet or an acoustic guitar? Yes! But an organ? Doubtful, unless you play recorded organ music.
  • Will anyone be singing?
  • Is your wedding tone religious or secular?

Beginning to feel a bit overwhelmed? Don't be! Throughout this website, you'll find plenty of information to help you choose your wedding songs.

However, my dear friend, I'm aware that planning a wedding is quite a job and has to be balanced with work and family & friends. Hectic indeed! So to help you, I've created the:

No need to panic.................... unless, of course, you're like the bride-to-be that contacted me one afternoon and asked if I would please play the harp for her wedding. Nothing unusual about that, so I asked her the date and time of her wedding. Imagine my shock when she joyfully replied, "Tomorrow, at 11:00 AM!"

Pleeeeeease folks, at least plan a little better than that!
