Live vs. Canned music for your wedding ceremony

Sunday, February 7th, 2010

Obviously I am biased, but nothing sets the romantic tone of a wedding celebration like live music.

Live music is crucial to a perfectly timed ceremony.  A human being is in charge of matching the exact pacing and timing of the ceremony itself.  This way, nothing moves too quickly or slowly, and the musical details you spent planning so carefully happen as planned.  It is always unfortunate when the timing of a wedding ceremony is thrown off due to a recorded music mishap, like a glitch in the CD, or Uncle Ed forgetting to turn the CD to the next track.  Not to mention, professional musicians are experienced at recovering unforseen moments (like tripping bridesmaids, moms passing out, etc) and know how to keep the ceremony moving as planned.

It is nice to have the ensemble that is playing for the ceremony carry the romantic, elegant vibe into the cocktail hour and even dinner, though a CD does a good job of taking a backseat to conversation during these parts of the wedding celebration.

Once you launch into your reception, a live band  gives a personal feel for events like the newlywed’s first dance, the mother and son dance, etc.. No recording can match the way a live band brings energy to the dance floor!

With live music, every wedding is as unique as its Bride and Groom.
