Why Choose Classic Songs for a Luxury Wedding

Classic songs have embedded themselves in wedding culture for centuries, evoking sentimental feelings and a timeless vibe. This means that when you look back at your wedding day, you’ll remember all of the heartfelt moments, accompanied by dreamy instrumentals.

Essential Elements of a Luxury Wedding Soundtrack

A luxury wedding soundtrack should have the following elements:

  • Your own taste – your wedding soundtrack should ultimately reflect your own style and taste when it comes to classical music; make it personal and fitting
  • Variety – you don’t want to stick with slow and melodramatic songs for the entirety of your day; the reception should have livelier and more vibrant songs, while the first dance songs are reserved for captivating classics
