Can we have music?

I've never done a wedding yet without some kind of music and I find it hard to imagine what it would be like. Depending on your budget and resources, you can have music of all sorts. 

I did a lovely wedding on a farm where the groom's sister and brother in law played a song they'd composed specially for the occasion that had everyone wiping away the tears; I've seen a bride coming down the aisle to the sound of 'My love is like a Red, Red Rose' played on the moothie; I've done weddings in caves with harpists and in back gardens with unaccompanied singers and I've done lots of weddings where someone's brought along their boombox and played three of the couples' favourite songs. 

As James Brown might have said, "If music be the food of love, get down"
