Music soothes the savage beast, makes your heart sing and fills your life with so much joy and wonderful memories. We all remember where we were when we heard “our song” for the first time. And every time we’ve heard it since, we proudly exclaim, “That’s my song!” as we groove to the beat. Music just has a way of weaving itself into the very fabric of our lives. So, if your love fills the air with the sound of birds chirping or you carry a special song in your heart just thinking about the one you love, a music-theme wedding might be perfect for you. What a wonderful way to celebrate your special day, with the songs and the theme that moves you. Music—it’s a beautiful thing!
Classic colors with contemporary flair
Most people think of black and white for a musical color scheme, and rightly so. Black and white is classic, chic and trendy all at the same time. Add an accent color or metallic hue, and you’re good to go! But, there are lots of other colors that work well with a music theme, like blush pink, cream and black or metallic silver and gold as an accent. Basically, any color that goes well with black and white will work for a music theme.
Musical details make your wedding sing!
Probably the most common way to personalize your music theme wedding is with your favorite music. But, in addition to that, you should let your love of music be seen in all of your wedding details. Sheet music can be used to create all sorts of things, like place cards and place mats, and they can be rolled to create a cone holder for confetti for a musical sendoff. Speaking of sheet music, if you’re a crafty, do-it-yourself bride, you can make a simple streamer by cutting hearts out of sheet music and suspend them throughout the room. If you play an instrument, use it as a prop at the reception or in your engagement photo shoot. Musical notes can accent your wedding cake or be used as a cake topper. For a different kind of guest book, have your guests sign a guitar! You can probably find an old instrument at a garage sale or flea market. You’ll also find musical ring bearer pillows, guest books and other wedding accessories that you can use for your special day.
Love’s song never ends…
Clearly, you don’t have to be a musician to have a musical celebration. Simply let your love of music be your guide. For the perfect finale to your concert of love, give your guests a music-themed wedding favor to complement the song in your hearts! From cookies to place cards and bookmarks, music notes and instruments make excellent music favors. But, remember, the key to pulling off this or any other wedding theme is to keep it simple and tasteful—and Kate Aspen’s wedding favors help you do just that!
