Signing the wedding register is the bit that actually makes your marriage official. You and your witnesses will either stay at the front or go into a separate room to sign the register and have your photos taken. During this time, it’s important to have some music going on so your guests aren’t sitting in silence.

It’s a joyous, celebratory moment that often calls for a rousing ballad or romantic acoustic love song. Embrace it as a great chance to add personality to your ceremony and choose something with a lot of meaning to you both.

While you might stick with something classical for your walk down and back up the aisle, there are no rules about what’s right and wrong for songs for signing the wedding register. Slow, fast, heavy metal, gospel, modern, classic? Go wild!

The interlude can be easily forgotten among all the more “important” parts of the ceremony. Trust us, your guests will appreciate it though. It could be an interesting moment to get them joining in with your ceremony by singing a hymn or song. If not, a singer or even a song from Spotify is a great choice.
