time for an update

A while ago, I wrote a series of blog posts to help couples choose music for their wedding day. Some traditional, some trending and some out of the box ideas. I've received lots of messages about how helpful it was, and I can see that they have been read so many times, THANK YOU!

Music is SO dynamic, and weddings have changed a bit over that time, so let's refresh that list! I will probably do this on a yearly basis.

but wait, there's more!

In my original series, I totally neglected to supply list for signing the registers and for cutting the cake. In my defence, I'm usually so busy getting those important photos that I don't pay much attention to what's playing. I have also noticed that a lot of the guests use this time to chat amongst themselves, over riding the music. However, for those who want something musical, or for those looking to give a favourite song a special place on there day, here's some ideas!
