It is in fact important to remember that when planning religious ceremonies, some extra caution should be taken, since not all kinds of music are usually allowed. To make an example, during a catholic ceremony only sacred or classical music (instrumental or sung) are allowed. As a general rule, wedding music during the ceremony might be subject to stricter restrictions when compared to musical choices for the wedding reception or party. Many town halls allow in fact music (recorded or live) to be played at the ceremony, yet it is always best to check with your wedding planner first.
At Tuscanyweddings your wedding planner will be happy to help you plan all details on how the music should be played or even assist you in the song choice should you have any doubts.
