Advice: Wedding music guide by A Few Good Men
This blog is all about doing things a little bit different. With every step of planning our wedding, we were keen to make choices which were not the same as every other couple before us. Our rule was no different when it came to selecting the music to feature at every step of our wedding day. We managed to pick songs which we’ve never heard at any other weddings and therefore will forever be remembered by us, our friends and family as “ours”.
Irish wedding act A Few Good Men (http://www.afewgoodmenband.com/the-band) are obviously as keen as we were to inspire the use of lesser used music for ceremony songs, first dance and even wedding film soundtracks. They have produced The Ultimate Wedding Music Guide infographic, detailing the most overplayed wedding songs and hottest wedding reception tunes.
We did have Etta James’ At Last played as we left our ceremony (among the top ten overplayed!), but we did make a last-minute switch from over-popular Amazed by Lonestar in favour of the lesser-known No Other by Kim Edwards (www.kimedwardsmusic.com) for our first dance!
As they say on their website: “As a bride and groom to be, you want a wedding band that is different, that doesn’t play the same old songs all the other wedding bands play.” My sentiments exactly for every aspect of a wedding. Your day should be unique and giving some real thought to your music is one way of achieving that.
