A cappella groups can make weddings unique
May 28, 2009
Wedding music can be a difficult decision for any couple, especially when they want to find something appropriate yet unique for their special day.
To accomplish that, some couples have incorporated the use of a cappella groups into their ceremony as a way to add some classic elegance to their nuptials. A cappella is a singing style that performs without the use of instruments. It's been a popular singing style with live music fans and will be featured (to a degree) on the upcoming fall show Glee.
In terms of song choice, be creative. While a cappella probably best works with gospel music, there are plenty of groups that can now arrange a popular song for the singing style.
Couples who want a more rousing performance should look for larger a cappella groups. Just be sure there's room for them to perform at the ceremony. Also, testing out the acoustics of the building beforehand can help with the placement of the group.
However, groups can be as small as four people, which can provide a more intimate feeling for the couple and their guests.
