  1. This was my experience with my wedding music: it wasn't hard for me to choose songs for specific moments (I knew what I wanted), but then again we only had the processional for both of us, no father/daughter dance, no first dance etc.

    I did spend lots of time editing and choosing music for the pre-ceremony while guests were arriving and mingling while we had pictures done, as well as the cocktail-style reception playlist (no dancing). Turns out that as far as I could tell none of it really mattered. I wasn't there to hear the pre-ceremoy stuff, but I imagine that people were too busy drinking and chatting to hear it. I also didn't get to hear my husband's entrance song, and I barely heard mine since I was so focused on my husband (I barely remember my dad walking me in because of this, but there's pictures to prove he was there). My mom assures me it was all beautiful but I heard nothing. Same issue with the reception music: people were so busy chatting and drinking it didn't matter at all what I'd chosen. I even forgot to edit one song that has a minute and a half of thunderstorms at the end but neither I nor anyone else (that I know of) noticed this, or even heard the song play.

    Again, this was my experience at my wedding with no dancing. Music choice would probably matter much more during a more formal ceremony (mine was in my living room, as was the reception) and if the reception had dancing because then music is the focus. My apartment ended up very warm inside due to the amount of people and 20 DEGREES CELCIUS in October so most people were outside on my thankfully spacious balcony, where you couldn't hear the music anyway.
