There’s no doubt 2016 has been a year for the books, full of joys and challenges, highs and lows and a whole lot of roller coaster-ing in between. I so enjoy thinking back through the positive things – the weddings we’ve had the opportunity to celebrate with happy couples, the personal triumphs for friends and family – and turn the negatives into positives by incorporating them into goals and resolutions for the New Year. I’m so excited… big stuff is planned for Laura Naturally in 2017!
Good wedding ceremony musicians are not only trained to play the music itself, they are skilled at “timing out” the music so that your processional down the aisle is seamless. Whether you and your wedding party feel like taking a little extra time to savor the moment or one of your bridesmaids loses a shoe, you shouldn’t have to worry about whether your musician gets the memo in the heat of battle.
And you won’t – if you take one simple step during your planning process to ensure proper wedding day communication.
It is important to tell your wedding planner or same-day venue coordinator to allow each song selection to gracefully end and a new one to begin before sending out the next wedding party group. Don’t worry, we won’t keep you waiting there forever! Many times, wedding planners feel rushed to get everyone down the aisle. But, if a little time is taken by the coordinator, the musician is able to avoid any abrupt stops in the music. This creates a much smoother and more pleasant experience for you, your groom, and your guests.
Even better, you can encourage the planner and musician to communicate one-on-one by phone prior to the big day so that they are on the same page!
