Hey, y’all! Happy Friday! We have kind of an interesting post to share with you today. It comes with lots of goodies, so make sure you listen up!
One of the many reasons why I fell in love with our wedding videographers was their impeccable taste in music. Philip has a knack for choosing the perfect song for each film, one that sets the scene and helps the couple’s story come to life. This couldn’t be more important, because even with the best footage in the world, an “off” song can discolor an entire film in no time.
This is just one reason why I love The Music Bed, an awesome tool and source of inspiration. By making it easy and legal for videographers to affordably license music people like you and I actually want to listen to, The Music Bed makes it easier for videographers to create something we’ll fall in love with. Plus, it helps support the (often newer or smaller) musical artists, and allows the wedding artists to create more creative pieces, since they no longer have to use on the same ten songs as everyone else.
The Music Bed can also be a source of inspiration for couples planning their weddings, as its curated library is filled with thousands of handpicked songs just ripe for their ceremony or reception debut. I certainly believe in the power of personal music — that’s why we agonized for so long over our ceremony choices! — so anything that can help me think out of the box is a winner in my book.
So what are those goodies for y’all that I mentioned up top? Mary Kate from The Music Bed, who just so happens to be a recently-engaged Southern bride herself (fun!), has handpicked a selection of 20 songs from their library. Just click here to give it a listen! We hope it gets your wheels turning for creative ceremony and reception options!
And finally, for an additional treat, we have three spectacular wedding films to share, all created with music licensed through The Music Bed. Definitely set aside some time to watch them! First up is Lindsey + Andrew’s Texas wedding by Joe Simon, using “London” by Benjamin Dunn.
Be sure to check out the entire library here. Happy listening, belles!
