The prelude takes place about 15-20 minutes prior to the start of the wedding ceremony. Though music is not the focus of the prelude is can really help set the mood for the ceremony and make the guests feel welcome as they enter and are seated. It also provides a wonderful cue for the guests to take their seats, notifying them that the wedding ceremony is about to start. The music for the prelude is often chosen by Duo d’Amore, as it is not really the focus in the same way that the processional music is. That being said, some clients have let us know a few songs that they like and we can easily incorporate these into the prelude. Depending on the mood that the bride and groom want to create (see the previous blog for more information) the prelude can range from music that is soft and welcoming, with predominantly classical music selections, to upbeat and bright with pop music. Other times clients want a mix of both, and that option is increasingly popular. However, most clients leave the actual selections up to Duo d’Amore, as we really enjoy selecting interesting music to play—sometimes the music can be quite loud (if there is a room full of people, for instance) or soft and intimate. An important thing about the prelude is the timing—for years we started playing for a full 30 minutes prior to the ceremony, but we have since changed this to a 15 minute time frame, and many guests appreciate this, as it give people a few minutes to chat amongst themselves prior to the wedding. It also provides a nice cue for people to take their seats as we begin to play.

I am always wiling and eager to help my clients, and they can call or email me anytime. www.duodamore.com

Duo d’Amore celebrates 100th wedding and event review on Wedding Wire

Duo d’Amore is proud to announce that we have received our 100th review on wedding wire! This could not have been possible without the hard work of our team of musicians, and such wonderful clients. Thanks!

“The music was beautiful and was timed perfectly. I only wish I could have been there to hear all the songs, like when guests arrive! haha! :)

We were very pleased with the service you and your musicians provided from beginning to end of the whole process.

I didn't get the chance to speak to the musicians but please tell them thank you for contributing to the magic of our special day.” –Darlene, bride 06/28/14
