One wedding i attended, the crowd went on a hilarious turn when the band started to play " achy breaky heart ". On another, eyes rolling on the bride's side of the church, the musicians were playing the Ex's theme song. On several occasions, wedding music has made a rather infamous take on the supposedly memorable, in some cases "The" most memorable event in a couple's lives.
Choosing music and the players is not too hard to do. But I must say it is imperative to book your music ahead of time because :
# 1. IT GIVES YOU TIME TO LOOK AT THE LIST. You can change, you can add and even ask some musicians to arrange music for you so that your occasion be as memorable as you want it to be.
# 2. IT GIVES YOU TIME TO CHECK ON THE PLAYERS. Whether you can check their videos online, see them live in a perfomance or in some pricey set up, you can have an audition for musicians so that you know what to expect in your wedding. Also make sure you get to see who the players would be, chances are, you book a female quartet and you end up with a mariachi band. Oh yes, it happens. Especially when it is peak season, you wish to book this particular group, but eventually some have decided to get a better deal and get replacements.
# 3. YOU CAN ALWAYS CUSTOMIZE YOUR WEDDING. This is your day, isn't it? Why would you book a double quartet if your guests are just 50'ish? Why choose a group that has horns if your chapel is too small. Always consider things like, theme of the wedding, number of guests and the age of the couple.
