As everyone arrives
The tradition: Guests are greeted by background music, a bit of light classical if supplied by the venue think Verdis Four Seasons or Lakme (the British Airways music) - or a couple-compilation.
The twist: Play your all-time favourite tunes while your guests take their seats (check the playlist with the registrar or minister first, though) and include fun explanations on your order of service, such as: Wouldnt It Be Nice by The Beach Boys - the first song we ever danced to together; Someone Like You by Van Morrison - because it came on the radio just after he proposed.
The aww factor: Friends will recognise your songs, and know from the get-go how much thought has gone into your day. Cue the rustle of tissue packets.
