Why avoid inappropriate music at your wedding?

Posted :

There’s absolutely no doubt over the fact that music has an immense power when it comes to bringing forward emotions and marking moments that are unforgettable. That’s precisely why most brides and grooms-to-be think twice about choosing the most special songs for their Big Day.


However, is there such a thing such as “inappropriate music for a wedding”? If so, what does it mean and why is it that you should avoid it? We have gathered some of the most important tips for you to keep in mind – so read on if you want to find out more.

  • Yes, there are certain types of music that are just not appropriate for a wedding. You are more than free to include them in your playlist, but it will most likely not be very appreciated by at least a part of your guests.
  • To make things clear, you don’t have to choose “classic” music for the processional and you can choose whatever song you like for that special “Walking Down the Aisle” moment. As long as it’s meaningful for you, that song will be more than fine. Yet, keep in mind that certain ceremony sites have stricter rules when it comes to what music they allow, so don’t forget to talk to your officiant about this.
  • Songs that are very vulgar should be avoided as much as possible. After all, the last thing you want for your Big Day is to have your grandma listen to Nicki Minaj and her Anaconda!
  • Also, try to steer clear of songs that have a very sad or dubious meaning. Make sure you listen very carefully to the lyrics so that you understand them fully before including a song in your wedding playlist!
