Welcome! Thank you for visiting Soundtrack To I Do! I’m Colleen, founder and editor here on the Soundtrack. I started this blog in March, 2011, in response to several friends who were getting married and asking for music advice. I discovered how little was out there to help brides and grooms plan the music for their weddings, and I decided to do something about it!
I love music. All kinds of music. I don’t love a song because it gets stuck in my head, but because it gets stuck in my soul. I don’t love a song because it’s been played on the radio 100 times, but I don’t dislike it just for that reason either. I don’t love a band because they underground and only the cool kids know about them, I love them because they make music that moves me. I love music because it speaks to me. It makes me laugh, cry, dance, ponder, breathe.
I love weddings. I am the girl who started planning my own when I was barely out of diapers. I love the romance, the drama, the beauty, the details. From simple to extravagant, traditional to unique, rustic to modern, I love it all.
I decided to combine those passions here. I wanted to create a space where brides (and grooms, if they’re so inclined) can be inspired, but more importantly, be helped. The music at a wedding can make or break it. It sets the tone, the mood, changes the atmosphere. This is a place to find ideas so that the music at your wedding is exactly what YOU want it to be. I hope it is all you dreamed of.
