Ma Maison’s Guide To Wedding Music

Who doesn’t love a great party during their reception? Who loves to watch a bride and groom dance to their first song? Who needs help picking amazing songs for their reception? Ma Maison’s Guide to Wedding Music is here to help!

You may not realize it now but music can make all the difference during your big day! From walking down the aisle, to dancing to your first song with your new spouse, to partying with your guests…we have some perfect song selections and playlists that will make the music of your big day, SPOT ON!

Let’s start with the basics, here are some of our favorite ceremony song choices. Walking down the aisle is something you will remember forever. Pick a song that makes your heart happy. Pick a song that is meaningful to both you and your spouse to be. It doesn’t have to be a classic! It can be anything you want, just so long as it is perfect for you two.

First dances are so special because this is the first time your guests really see you as a married couple and it is also one of the first moments you really get to celebrate being a newly minted wedded couple. Again, this song is just about you two. Use your favorite song that you have listened to together all along. Pick something that speaks to your love and your story. Here are some of our favorites:
