Never have you wanted anything to run as smoothly as this. Your perfect gay wedding ceremony is not only momentous for you and your partner, it's a huge occasion for your guests too.
In many cases, this could be the first same sex wedding that most of them have ever attended. That practically guarantees that it will be the one remembered for the rest of their lives, no matter how many more gay unions follow. This was the ceremony that was novel and new, carrying with it a sense of history happening right here and now.
It's a beautiful binding of two people in love, which might not have even been possible a month, year or decade before. As campaigns lead to legal changes - equal rights in marriage rites - unions between gay couples will become the norm.
But right now, your gay marriage commitment is amongst the vanguard. Pioneers in marriage lines, which set the standard for all that follow. No pressure then, to get it right!
Most of all, your wedding day has to be perfect for you. Guests, history and trend-setting aside, the moment of your commitment in love to each other will forge an indelible memory. One that will be hopefully cherished for the rest of your lives.
And the trigger for that (for all concerned) is likely to be the music.
These are the tracks that will lock in all that describes what it was to be there. Like a mental time capsule, hermetically sealed - containing the visions, aroma, atmosphere, feelings, everything touched and heard, the little looks and the grand gestures - there to be experienced again whenever you hear a particular tune. So what music will it be, picked to hold such memories for those who were there? The ideal soundtrack to a gay marriage.
Get that right, and all else will fall into place.
