Guest Post | Music Details

Ok, this is my last day in heaven’s waiting room. Also known as Grover Hot Springs, California. My favorite place to escape to and forget about the world. Although I’m sure at this point I’m ready for a real bed.

Our last guest post is a fantastic one. Sarah from A Paper Proposal has some amazing images and ideas to share! I love love love these images. Thank you so much for sharing Sarah!!

Hi guys!  I’m Sarah from A Paper Proposal | Inspired Weddings, and I’m excited to be a guest today on Soundtrack To I Do while Colleen is away camping!

Since Colleen’s blog has such a unique theme, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to embrace the musical wedding topic for my post today.  Music is absolutely essential to any wedding, but it’s often overlooked for more glamorous, frilly details like flowers, centerpieces and wedding gowns.  But not today!  Today is all about music on paper, and how you can keep the music “playing” throughout your wedding day (even when it’s quiet time 😉

#1 Name your tables after your favorite songs, using either the song title or even a favorite line from the lyrics.  Both photos via Hi-Fi Weddings.

#2 “Mr.” and “Mrs.” signs on music sheets by Maemae’s.

#3 Fun invitations using lyrics from your favorite celebratory songs, like these fun “I Gotta Feeling” cards by La Belle Vie Design.

#4 Cones made out of music sheets to hold rose petals or confetti at your wedding ceremony.  These ones are by Vintage Twee.

#5 Super easy idea – music note cutouts as confetti!

#6 Decorate your wedding reception with votive candles wrapped in music sheets by Carolina Cottage.

#7 DIY boutonnieres made out of music sheets.  If you’re especially talented, learn how to make them yourself at The Unreal Bride.

#8 Large block letters in yours and your groom’s initials that are covered in music sheets, like these made by A Bushel and a Peck.

#9 I was totally impressed by this clever “Music message in a bottle”-style centerpiece, made using a silver antique serving tray, round white stones and a bottle with a rolled up music sheet message inside.

#10 Enjoy dessert with a “Here Comes the Sun” antique spoon by Vic & Albie.

#11 When your guests hit the photo booth, ask them to jot down a line from their favorite song and strike a pose!  The chalkboard is an easy DIY project, too, as Jordan from Oh Happy Day explains.

#12 Use a fun “Rock and Roll” directional sign to get your guests from point A to point B.

#13 Take a small bunch of paper flowers made out of music sheets, like these by Green Trike Press, and arrange them in a vase, give them away as favors or even create a small bouquet for your flower girl.

#14 Top off your wedding favors with a music-themed gift tag.

#15 See #1 !

#16 I really love the idea of using lyrics from you and your new hubby’s favorite songs throughout your day, which can be as simple as placing a large print on display at your reception, or even using it as a guestbook!

#17 Use music sheets as placemats.  Put them underneath clear plates for an even more dramatic effect.  Photo via Ruffled
