Choosing the right music for your wedding is never easy. There are so many lovely pieces to choose from. Many brides engage the services of a musician to play before the wedding ceremony and during her entrance. Pianists, string quartets and harpists are all popular. It is very unlikely that there will be a problem once you have decided who you want and have made the booking. However, what do you do if your musician doesn’t turn up on the day?
It always pays to have a contingency plan just in case. Although unlikely sometimes things can go wrong. A vehicle breaks down, there is an accident, someone is ill or extreme bad weather prevents travel. Any of these things could happen.
My advice is to have some music prepared which can be played over the venue / hotel’s music system if necessary. Check with the venue that they have a system that is set up and ready to use. Check also that you will be able to connect to it. If you are putting your music on an Ipod or MP3 player ask if they have the right connections to enable you to plug it in.
The wedding music is very important and so it pays to be prepared.
