If your ceremony is at a church, temple, or house of worship, talk to the music director about music selection and the instruments/ensembles available (pipe organ, piano, band, choir). Ask for instrumentalist and soloist recommendations.
Be sure to listen to them perform or sing before you hire them for your wedding or reception. You can also call a music specialty store to ask for recommendations of instrumentalists or soloists.
For receptions, consult with a professional DJ and give the DJ the list of music you like. Often slide shows are played at receptions, and music can be coordinated with a PowerPoint or other type of visual / audio presentation. Downloads are easy for these presentations.
DJs / MCs will also keep your reception moving: cake cutting, guests dancing, first dance, and more.
