Am I Wrong?

Dear WendyK,
I am getting married in 7 months. I am not a “mainstream” thinking bride. I have made numerous concessions with my mom, but I draw the line at the type and choice of music for the ceremony. I absolutely do not want her “Classical” music. She says that this is a MUST for a wedding. Is that true?

Dear Am I Wrong?
Compromise is what life is all about. I must say, I do respect that you are working this out with you mother. It is not my place to go any deeper than the specific question that you have raised. There are no laws written, that I am aware of, as to the specific music for a wedding ceremony. The various religions dictate ceremonial aspects, but not the music. As long as your choices are within the boundaries of being reasonable and respectful, I do not see why they cannot be achieved. As lovely as Classical music is for a wedding ceremony, it is not for everyone. Your choice of music genre should reflect your personality while at the same time be respectful of the sanctity of marriage.
