MVSJ Music Planner Form
General Information
Please be specific as possible including address and detailed location or room information for larger venues.
Music Requests
A. Prelude
Most wedding parties leave prelude music choices to MVS. We generally perform light classical music during this time. If you have a special request, please list it here we will do our best to honor it.
B. PROCESSIONAL
Most wedding parties leave prelude music choices to MVS. We generally perform light classical music during this time. If you have a special request, please list it here we will do our best to honor it. (Please see “Suggested Repertoire” for assistance with music selection.)
***Please note: For smaller weddings parties, we recommend only one piece to be performed for all of the above mentioned attendants, including parents, grandparents, bridesmaids, etc. This enhances flow by preventing too much stopping and starting between small groups of attendants.
If you opt for us to perform separate music for the mothers and the bridal party, groomsmen may enter to either the mothers’ music or the bridal party’s music. Please indicate your preference here if applicable.
Including Best Man
Including Maid of Honor
C. Music During Ceremony
Please choose one piece for each area that applies to your ceremony:
Gospel Acclamation/Responsorial Psalm/Mass of Creation parts (Please specify per our suggested repertoire list if applicable. Special rules apply for Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church and Chapel of the Incarnate Word)
D. Recessional
Please choose one recessional piece.
This is important as the final statement cues musicians on when to start recessional.
Reminder
Any unpaid balance is due not later than 14 days prior to your wedding date. Payments postmarked later than this must include a $25 late fee. GRATUITIES are accepted and appreciated by musicians. If you choose to tip musicians, simply have someone approach the lead musician on the wedding day.
Extra Time
In the unlikely event that your ceremony runs past the contracted finish time, do you authorize all musicians in the group who are available to stay and perform overtime to do so, at the rate per musician per 15-minute segment stated at the bottom of your original contract agreement (no transaction fees will be incurred on credit card charges for overtime)? If yes, we must receive credit card info/authorization no later than 2 weeks prior to event date. Card will only be charged if ceremony exceeds contracted time (this is not common).
***Please include any additional information you feel we need to know that was not covered anywhere else on this form.***
As always, please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns you may have regarding music selection!
THANK YOU AND CONGRATULATIONS
