A wedding without something catchy, some interesting details which depict the newly-weds, is just jet another generic ceremony. On the other hand, many mistakes have been made by desperately trying too hard to be ‘as never seen before’. It’s like naming babies, when parents go way too far wanting to name their little one uniquely, that the kid files an official request to change their name as soon as they’re of legal age 🙂
Yes, innovation is desirable, but be careful not to get sidetracked. Make sure you have a good measure. If you really want to create a ‘wow’ effect, make sure that it is a genuine ‘wow’ and that it is memorable.
But, what is it that makes the excitement last long after the wedding is over?
Her Highness, the Music!
It’s becoming more of a trend to hire several different ensembles to perform different music genres at wedding ceremonies. This guarantees for a constant high level of atmosphere, and that the guests are entertained throughout the event.
The first thing you should think about when you’re searching for a venue is the type of a band you’d like to hire for your wedding. It seems that in our region most people opt for bands that perform Serbian folk music. It is a widespread opinion here that a party is no good unless it includes folk music, and if you agree with that it’s perfectly fine. However, if this is a wish of your mother, your aunt or any other family member, and you’re agreeing purely because you want to make a compromise… Think again, this is YOUR day and you should be having the best time at the party.
How to Organize a Wedding to Remember?
Once you’ve decided on the wedding band, you can start thinking about what would make your wedding unique and unforgettable.
-Imagine a string quartet, a jazz trio or a harp-violin combo, greeting the guests and filling in the space with sounds during the photo session.
-How about an accordion-violin combo playing Metallica in between the sessions of the wedding band (instead of playing a CD, use this opportunity to create a ‘WOW’ effect).
-The arrival of the wedding cake is an opportunity for you, your friends and family to enjoy these memorable and amazing moments. This can be accompanied by a brass or tamburitza band, but this is something that’s has been seen too many times before. All of a sudden, a girl with an electric violin might show up, wearing a unique outfit, and playing well-known tunes.
Ah, that is when you will think ’Can I have this feeling forever?’ 🙂
What Is It That the Music Does to People?
After so many years of music, we still cannot find the right words to describe this. The only thing we can do – is to play it.
