Extraordinary Days Require Exceptional Invitations

The Candle Lighting Ceremony – Songs

  • Have a song for every candle, or choose one or two songs for the whole ceremony.
  • Provide the DJ with a list of the songs to play, the people who will be called up to light the candle and the order. This will prevent inaccuracies and will allow the DJ to follow along and play the correct songs at the correct time.
  • Choose a music that people can walk up with. Even practice at home, to see if the rhythm fits grandma’s walking, or the sister’s jumping!
