Soundtrack Your Wedding

If music be the food of love, play on! – William Shakespeare, Twelfth Night

The Bard sure nailed it when he talked about the importance of music in the world of romance. Thinking of your relationship with your sweetie bun, I’m sure a number of songs spring to mind – be it the song that was playing when you first met, first kissed or when he proposed.

Here’s a fun idea for your wedding – create your own wedding soundtrack! Make a playlist of all the songs that hold special meaning for you, burn them onto cd’s and package up in a sweet little sleeve. A very personal thank you gift that guests will actually use and enjoy. An eclectic mix introduces guests to some new tunes they might not have ever heard before (how fun is that!). It’s also a glimpse into your world as a couple – what a gift to share with your closest friends and family.

A recent couple did this and the selection of tunes was incredibly diverse, reflecting their Indian heritage, love of Rumba Flamenco guitar,  their home in the Big Apple and the host country of their destination wedding. Check it out…
