We highly recommend playing a music clip or something appropriate as the speakers walk up for their speech.  It breaks the ice and get’s rid of that awkward silence as  the speaker walks up to the lecturn.     This is a very personal choice though, as you’ll know your family and friends best.   Here’s some popular choices for speech jingles. Songs from TV series and movies are very popular and feature often at the weddings we play at.   For reasons unknown, most of our grooms decide to have some fun with their best men, here’s some crackers.
