Prelude Wedding Songs That Will Keep Guests Entertained


1502451_224310691026429_839614039_oDuring the wedding planning process, selecting wedding prelude music is easily one of the most forgotten or postponed tasks. Typically the bride and groom aren’t in the same room as the guests as they arrive so they don’t really think about how necessary entertainment is at that time. Make sure your wedding starts off on the right note and your prelude wedding songs will keep your guests entertained. We recommend you discuss with your ceremony DJ or musician what style of music you would like at this time. Instrumental versions of songs are also a great choice, as they set the mood and allow guests to talk with each other before the ceremony begins. If using a DJ, music from Vitamin String Quartet has many popular songs that have a classy feel your guests are sure to enjoy. The following songs are some of our top choices for non-traditional prelude music.
