Congratulations! You are now engaged, and planning your wedding. Aside from your vows, are you aware of what one of the most important aspects of your big day is? Your music! From your walk down the aisle to your exit, your wedding will be filled with music, creating just the right atmosphere for you and your guests to enjoy.

However, when it comes to your wedding ceremony, there are some key factors that you should keep in mind when choosing your music.

Here at Philadelphia String Quartet, it is our goal to provide gorgeous music for your big day. That’s why we have gathered some top tips to assist you in choosing your wedding ceremony music. If you are curious to learn more, be sure to continue reading:

·         Type of ceremony. When it comes to religious weddings, you may be limited to the song choices you have available to you. If your wedding is held within a church or sanctuary, it is important to research to see which guidelines or restrictions the location has in regards to the most they allow. However, if you are choosing a string quartet to perform at your wedding, oftentimes music without lyrics are allowed, therefore, in most cases, you should be able to choose any song that you would like to have performed.

·         Wedding setting. Believe it or not, your setting actually plays a big role in the type of music that you should have performed within your ceremony. If you were seeking a DJ to perform for your wedding ceremony that is held outdoors, that most likely will not be an option, as electricity is not always available. However, know that a string quartet can play their instruments in any setting. So, if you are among the trees or on the beach, you can still have a gorgeous sound for your nuptials. Indoors however, you should be able to accommodate any music that you seek.

·         Vocalist. While music can of course be beautiful all on its own, you may rather have a vocalist performing as well, which can certainly add to the personalization of your wedding ceremony. If you have a song that you wrote, or a song that has lyrics that represent the love story and bond that you share as a couple, incorporating a vocalist to perform with your musicians is certainly a great choice!

Your wedding day is a truly special event, and should certainly be adorned with the most beautiful and well-planned music. Here at Philadelphia String Quartet, we are so honored to be able to provide wonderful music for weddings. If you are still seeking a wedding band in Philadelphia, be sure to contact us today.
