You wedding is a magical moment in your life where everything needs to be perfect. Every detail counts. The decorations, the floral arrangements, and place settings need to be pristine. Another very special element is the music you choose. This includes the wedding processional songs and even the pre-ceremony music.  Here at Tropics Entertainment, we have the perfect music choices for your wedding. Let one of our talented wedding music bands show you how music can really set the tone, Chicago.

We Know What Works

Wedding music encompasses everything from the bride walking down the aisle to the bride and groom’s first dance together and the reception party afterward — so it is not to be overlooked. Kick off the ceremony with a pleasant wedding prelude featuring music that moves and inspires you. Plan for about 30 minutes of music to play while guests find their seats and wait for the excitement to begin.

To inspire, we provided some of the most beautiful, romantic and wedding-worthy songs that have been released over the past years. They are no-brainers, really.

Wedding Processional Songs, Cocktail Songs, and Reception Songs

You have the flowers picked out for the altar, the programs are freshly printed, and you are confident your flower girl will make it down the aisle without a single tear or tantrum – but have you considered what will be playing while your guests arrive and patiently wait for the ceremony to begin? The wedding prelude songs are a small yet crucial detail of your wedding ceremony. These songs will help set the mood for the ceremony and offer light background music that will paint the elegant picture you desire. If you need some help creating your pre-ceremony song list, we have gathered a few great suggestions just for you.
