Wedding Day Tips


Over the last 20 years, The Shrewsbury String Quartet has performed at over 200 weddings each year.

We have seen many disasters that could have easily been avoided.

609-932-0697

Here are some ideas that could make your special day run smoother:

 

 

  1. Be ready early.

    Nothing will stress a bride more than having to rush to the ceremony.

 

  1. Get plenty of rest the night before the wedding.

 

  1. Start your wedding on time.

    It is very rude to your guests if your wedding starts late.

 

  1. Practice walking and more importantly practice sitting in your wedding dress.

    Trains, hoops and strapless gowns can be problematic. (Also, practice using the ladies room, you will probably need help!)

 

  1. A few weeks before the wedding, wear your shoes for several hours making sure they are broken in and comfortable.

 

  1. Limit your alcohol intake (and also the groom’s).

    There is nothing more upsetting and disrespectful to your guests than a sloppy bride or groom. (Some of our photographer friends have told us that pictures of “tipsy” brides or grooms often do not turn out as well as wedding couples would have liked.

 

  1. Put your engagement ring on your right hand until after the exchange of rings.

 

  1. Make an emergency kit

    and also have the groom and groomsmen carry small packets of tissues in their tux jackets.

(Google wedding emergency kits for ideas of what to include in the kit.)

 

  1. Ask your officiant to keep the sermon to less than 3 minutes

    or better yet have no sermon at all. (Usually, anything beyond 3 minutes starts being about the officiant, not about the bride and groom.)

 

  1. Keep your ceremony short.

    Most guests will only remember your processionals, vows, first kiss and introduction as husband and wife.

 

  1. Do not deal with any wedding day minutia.

    Let someone else deal with it. Your wedding will not be perfect. Something will go wrong and mistakes will happen and that is what you and your guests will remember and talk about years from now.

 

  1. Keep smiling and enjoy your big day.
    Remember, it’s not about the wedding, it’s about the marriage.

  2. Here is an excellent article. This bride really handles it well.

    Dear Tony & the Shrewsbury Quartet, Thank you so much for providing such beautiful music at my August 31st wedding. You exceeded my expectations in every way! You were very accommodating throughout the months leading up to the wedding, including working with my vocalist to accompany her during the sung hymns and providing music suggestions that worked out marvelously. I received many positive comments from my guests regarding the quality of your music. You were especially the highlight of the wedding for my three year old flower girl, who couldn’t help but ask if you would play again throughout the ceremony. I’d be happy to provide a glowing recommendation for you to any future bride. Best, Liz HF

    Dear Tony, I want to extend my deepest gratitude to you and the members of the Shrewsbury String Quartet for playing at Grace Church, Pemberton last Sunday for our service of Advent Lessons and Carols. The quartet, choir, and organ worked very well together and combined to produce some extremely beautiful sounds. The music filled our sanctuary and touched the hearts of all who attended the service. We appreciate your sharing of your time and talents with us and hope that you will return again to Grace Church, should we have a need for strings in the future. With best wishes for a Happy Holiday Season, Gregory Deane SmithDirector of MusicGrace Episcopal ChurchPemberton, NJ
