Have you ever considered a music entertainer such as a band, DJ, or friend, not having the music you requested for your wedding ceremony or reception? Brides always expect their music providers to have their special music requests for their wedding day. Let me state that professional music entertainers WILL have the music their clients request. In the Internet age, it should not be an issue. However, we have heard time and time again of brides being irate at their music entertainers for not having a song they requested for the wedding ceremony or reception.

Custom Wedding Music CD
We would like to offer the suggestion for brides and grooms to create your own custom wedding music CD with all your required songs for your wedding ceremony and reception. You can have it in your possession on your wedding day to give to your music master of ceremonies or music entertainers. This will guarantee the M.C. has the songs you requested for your special day. Having your own songs will also guarantee the playing of the correct versions of the songs. An example would be the Shania Twain song From This Moment. From This Moment is sung by Shania Twain by herself and also as a duo with Shania Twain and Bryan White. In addition, there are live versions of the song. A great way to verify you have the correct song versions is to go to Amazon.com and listen to the different song samples of each song.
Custom wedding music CDs can be created at home on your computer by purchasing and then downloading MP3 songs from web sites like iTunes and Amazon. The cost of each song is about one dollar. Then, write the songs to a blank CD-R (you can only copy songs to the cd once) or CD-RW (you can save songs to the CD and update songs) using a software program such as Sonic. Usually, you can get about 17 songs per each CD. Once you have all the songs you want for your wedding saved on CD(s), your set to give them to your wedding music entertainer.
When you purchase songs from Amazon or iTunes, you are given seven licenses for each song purchased. Therefore, you can legally create seven CDs of your new songs purchased online. As a result of having seven licenses, you can offer a custom music CD to your wedding guests as a wedding favor or memento very inexpensively. Be sure to purchase the number of songs in correlation to the number of seven CD collections. The custom music CD would be a great keepsake. You just cannot sell the CDs due to copyright laws. In addition, many online sites and stores like Best Buy offer custom labels and CD label software. Brides and grooms can personalize their CD favors with wedding artwork, their names, and the date of the wedding. Colored CD cases are also available to complete the perfect wedding favor.
