It’s not necessary to stick to sweet music
Wedding usually connotes a “love in the air” theme. Though it is true, but the “in love” ambience does not necessary mean playing sweet music on the entire wedding ceremony and reception. It may be applicable playing sweet music on the ceremony but you can switch from sweet music to other music genres on the reception as it gives a more relaxing and comfortable atmosphere. The couple can choose some of their favourite songs and have it played during the reception so they’ll be able to share their interest to the important people around them.
An invitation is not a passes for politicians and high ranking officials
Your wedding day is important to you and not to the people from the political arena. Most of the time, couples choose well known people and politicians to their wedding in the aim to get connections with elite. This also ensures expensive gifts from them. This may be beneficial to the couple but the solemnity and essence of the ceremony is sometimes disregarded. This event should be shared to the people who walked with you on your journey and not to the people who barely know you.
Wedding ceremonies are holy and important to the couple. This should be taken on a more serious note and the couple should always remember that marriage is the start of the journey towards procreating, raising and protecting a family.
