What exactly is wedding sheet music? Why should you think about purchasing sheet music for your wedding? How could you incorporate sheet music into your wedding?
Sheet music is a hand-written or printed form of music notation that uses modern musical symbols to indicate the pitches (melodies) and rhythms of a song or musical piece. Typically sheet music is in paper format. However, you can download sheet music in digital format. Musicians can have their sheet music on their tablets, laptops and book readers.
Why is sheet music important at a wedding?
Are you planning to have musicians play a musical instrument at your wedding? Will you be having a pianist play during your ceremony for the processional, unity candle lighting or recessional? Will you be having special music played by a quartet, bagpipes, harpist or other musicians as guest arrive or depart from the ceremony venue to the reception?
I know what you are thinking. “I only hire professional musicians who have their own sheet music.” “My musicians told me they are very familiar with the songs to be played and they have the songs memorized.” All of that may be true. BUT, why not just have it there as a backup? Sheet music is not very expensive. Professional musicians know how to read sheet music too.
How can you have a sheet music themed wedding?
Here are a few ways you could incorporate sheet music into your wedding:
Put sheet music into a picture frame for naming your reception table. Each table would have its own song title.
Have the sheet music embossed on your wedding cake for an elegant, classic black and white theme.
Hand craft sheet music into centerpiece accessories like hearts or wrapping candle holders.
Frame sheet music with numbers for table numbers.
What to do with the sheet music after your big day?
After your wedding is over and it is time to reflect on the day’s events, think treasures. You can print your sheet music of your first dance songs to frame on the wall. You can also do the same for any special musician who performed at your wedding.
