You’re planning for the big day down to every last detail! We want to help give you the perfect wedding music and make your planning just a bit easier! Check out the below tips to better understand what Autumn’s Dawn can do for you!
Here’s what questions we will ask you –
What is the date of your wedding?
What is the location?
Are you requesting a quote for the ceremony, reception or both? If reception, how long?
Do you know what songs you would like or would you like us to help select them for you?
If you would like piano music, does your venue provide a piano?
Here’s what we can provide at weddings -
Wedding Prelude – Typically 30 minutes prior to the start of the wedding, the prelude sets the tone of the wedding and gives your guests something to listen to and look at while waiting for the big event.
Wedding Ceremony – This is the list of ceremony songs that make up a traditional ceremony. You can have all, some or more than what is listed. This is just to give you an idea of all of the songs you will need to think about. We will also be present at the wedding rehearsal to make sure that everything is timed to perfection.
Seating of the Grandparents
Seating of the Mothers
Wedding party Processional
Unity Candle Music
Wedding Postlude – This is the music that is played while your guests are dismissed. It can be a bit awkward to have just dead silence after the ceremony finishes so this is a wonderful transition to the beginning of a fun reception!
For the above three items, our instrument combination is any of the following - piano/violin/cello, piano/flute/cello, piano/flute/violin, piano/violin/violin. Vocals can also be performed as requested. For the prelude and postlude, we typically play soft waltzes from our repertoire. Ceremony music can be picked from our repertoire or you can select your own songs.
Wedding Reception – Now to celebrate the vows! The reception can take many shapes and forms! If you are planning for sophistication and would like dinner music as your guests eat, we can provide this using the same instrument combinations as the ceremony. Looking for something more rustic for your barn wedding or outdoor bash? We also perform bluegrass/folk music with the combo of guitar/violin/banjo.
Music Samples - Wedding music samples can be found on our Facebook page -
All weddings are quoted on an individual basis according to date, location, type of music, length of performance and music selection. If we do not have the music you are requesting, we will purchase it and spend extra time learning this new music.
We do not require a deposit, but we do require a signed contract and full payment on the day of the wedding rehearsal.
