Selecting appropriate wedding prelude songs will give your wedding ceremony a much-needed harmonious touch. Wedding prelude songs are played before the wedding ceremony begins and they are supposed to set the tone of the wedding ceremony.
As always, selecting an experienced, professional DJ will go a long way in ensuring that beautiful songs are played at the right time during the wedding ceremony.
A seasoned DJ knows that prelude songs are songs played when the guest are taking their seats and ensures that these songs are relaxing; songs that make the guest close their eyes (of course not sleeping) and fade away with the melodic tunes of the songs.
Below are some great wedding prelude songs.
