Emotional Responses and Logical Judgment Vis-a-Vis Weddings and Wedding Bands

When we talk about wedding bands, it is actually the music we are talking about. People seem to focus more on effects instead of the source. Take the song Imagine, for instance. While we claim that it is the melody and the message of the song that we appreciate rating it even among our best-loved favourites, we cannot deny that if it was Yoko Ono who originally sang it instead of John Lennon, it is almost without doubt that it will not appear in any of the charts, even in Japan.

We know that a wedding event can never be complete without music despite the knowledge that it is the ceremony of taking the vow of marriage that is the heart of the whole affair. Man normally focuses more on effects rather than the cause.

Man is the most logical and rational creature on the planet. But he is also emotional at the same time. He responds to what he feels. What he feels motivates and stimulates him. Hence the apparent focus on effects rather than results.

But in situations that do not call for emotional responses, man can be coldly objective and highly rational. Even in emotional situations such as in matters of life and death, man foregoes with his natural emotional tendencies and decides for the common good. He coldly decides against his emotions.

In the matter of weddings, how do you think does man decide? For important events such as weddings, man responds in a mix of both emotional and rational manner. Let us try to find the dividing line between man’s emotional responses and his rational judgments in weddings.

Emotional responses:
A Choice of music genre or type.
A Choice of wedding attires.
A Choice of food and drinks.
A The theme of the affair, colours and decoration.
A Dates set for the affair and its sub-components.
Rational judgment:
A Choice of wedding band that best performs the chosen music genre or type.
A Economic factors affecting wedding band hires, food, venue, etc.
A Forging of contracts.
A Follow-up efforts such as progress update meetings, etc.
A Logic of the guest list.
A Quantity/volume of food and drinks.
A Dates set for the affair and its sub-components.

Do you notice how “”””dates set for the affair and its sub-components”””” appears in both emotional and rational factoring? The unclear or unscientific choice of dates that have particular number “”””shapes””””, how theyfall on certain days of the week or their relationship to the date of the full moon are purely emotional superstition and do not have any verifiable positive or negative effect on the affair and the present or future of the couple or their families. Attainability, economic andpractical significance and the like, on the other hand, are logical bases for choice of dates.

That shows us how complex man is – in matters of domestic significance such as weddings and wedding bands or of national/international import such as economics and politics.
