Contagious Music Leave a Comment

Have you ever watched a movie without any music? You may not have noticed it before, but if you pay attention, there is music throughout the movie that creates the perfect mood for the moment. Music can have the same effect for your special day. Every moment, from your walk down the aisle to your exit as newlyweds, can be enhanced with the right music.

So, how do you choose the perfect wedding music to make your day completely unforgettable? There are plenty of songs that can lift the festive mood for your special day, but only the right songs will communicate your love for each other.

Here at Contagious Events, we believe that every detail of your wedding should be perfect for you, right down to the music. That’s why we've put this list together for you! 

Here are our 5 Top Tips for Choosing Wedding Music

Imagine Your Dream Wedding

You likely have a vision for your wedding day. Take a second to image your special day from the beginning. Imagine your walk down the aisle to the moment you join hands and make your newlywed exit. What emotions do you see? What music is making your moments even more special? Use this to inspire your music choices.

Consider a Theme

You can have a set theme for your big day. For example, if you have chosen a Great Gatsby themed wedding, then consider utilizing some music from the 1920s. Or, for your rustic themed wedding, some country music would be most fitting.

Consider Your Guests Too

Your wedding gives you and your partner the opportunity to celebrate your nuptials. However, it also gives your guests the opportunity to celebrate with you. Consider the guests that will be attending your wedding when designing your playlist. For example, if there will be children present, it’s best not to include songs with foul language. Showcasing songs from each era would be best.

Hear from Your Guests

You can get your guests excited for the festivities if you allow them to get involved in choosing the music. Include a song request card with your invitations, so that you guests have the opportunity to request a few songs and return it with their RSVP. This is a great way to easily comprise your playlist.

Get Personal

There are so many moments within your wedding that can be complemented by music. Consider choosing songs to add some personalization to your big day. Your walk down the aisle, cake cutting ceremony, first dance, bouquet and garter tosses, and your exit as newlyweds, can all be complemented by music.


Your wedding will be incredible, and the music you choose can make it memorable for everyone. These tips can help you choose the perfect sound for your special day.
