Looking To Hire A Singer-Guitarist?
What you might not think about straight away are your wedding ceremony songs and music choices. The church organ or a string quartet are timeless, traditional wedding ceremony music options, but for a more modern vibe, many couples are turning to acoustic guitarists and singer-guitarists to accompany their nuptials.
Acoustic guitar wedding ceremony songs allow you to feature stripped-back, authentic versions of the songs that mean most to you. An acoustic duo or soloist can pick out the romance of any song, so it doesn’t matter if you want to walk down the aisle to Metallica or leave the ceremony bouncing along with Beyoncé, an acoustic song will enhance the mood you’re looking to create.
You can add as much (or as little) music into your wedding ceremony as you would like. Normally couples will pick out two pieces of music for their ceremony, the first being a processional song, sometimes called the wedding march. This is when the bridesmaids and bride enter the ceremony and walk down the aisle. The second piece of music normally chosen for the ceremony is the recessional song. This is played after the wedding ceremony, when the happy couple are officially announced as husband and wife, walking back down the aisle together as a married couple. You may want to add a piece of music in the middle of your ceremony, or during the registry signing. This is often called the interlude.
