When you work with Leigh to perfect your wedding day music, your guests and loved ones are sure to remember your big day for years to come.

How to Plan Music for a Wedding

2020 Tips

Once you have decided to choose Leigh as your wedding harpist, it is time to get down to the fun part — choosing the right music. Here are some of the top considerations you should keep in mind.

Look Back on Your History with Your Future Spouse

Different genres, artists, or specific songs likely hold significance for you and your future spouse. Think back to the songs you listened to together when you first met. Is there a particular tune that embodies how you felt when you fell in love? What about a song that you two used to play on repeat while together?

Consider the Different Parts of Your Wedding

There is a variety of music to choose for different parts of your wedding. Music for the prelude, the ceremony, and the time after the ceremony can provide a distinctive ambiance, but each should flow from one to the other. A harpist of Leigh’s experience will craft a smooth, cohesive performance for every phase of your day.

Don’t Wait Until the Last Minute

When you hire Leigh as your wedding harpist, you will want to decide on your song choices as soon as possible. With one month lead time, she can try to find the music for the songs you request in case she doesn’t already have it in her repertoire.
