Here at Philadelphia String Quartet, we understand what it takes to make a wedding memorable through music. That’s why we have gathered some of the top events that can be accompanied by great songs within your big day. If you are curious to discover more, be sure to continue reading:

·         The ceremony. First off, your wedding will begin with a wonderful ceremony. Seeing as your ceremony is actually the biggest part of your big day, you will certainly want every aspect of it to be perfect. For your music, you can take a traditional approach, and choose a song such as the Wedding March or Eine Kleine Nachtmusik by Mozart for your walk down the aisle. However, if you would like to be a little bit more unique and modern with your choice, opt for a song such as Bittersweet Symphony by The Verve or Beautiful Day by U2. Your guests will certainly enjoy the personalization that you have added.

·         The tosses. If you and your partner are participating in the bouquet and garter toss, you can certainly make these moments even more fun with just the right songs! As all of the single ladies line up to catch your bouquet, consider playing a song such as, well, Single Ladies by Beyoncé or Girls Just Want to Have Fun by Cyndi Lauper. For the Garter Toss, however, you can choose a song such as Whatta Man by Salt-N-Pepper, or something a little more playful, like the theme song to Indiana Jones.

·         The cake cutting. Your wedding cake cutting will be either naughty or nice…there really is no in between. You will either romantically feed cake to your partner, or smash it in their face. Either way, this moment can be so much more fun with a song that complements it. For a sweet approach, consider Sugar Sugar by the Archies. However, if you are seeking something a little more powerful and fun, Pour Some Sugar on Me by Def Leppard is always a great choice!

Your wedding music is so much more than songs just being performed, it will create the entire atmosphere for your ceremony and reception. Here at Philadelphia String Quartet, it is our goal to provide outstanding music for your big day! If you are still planning your Philadelphia wedding music, be sure to contact us today.
