Wedding Ceremony Music

No day can provide more pressure to find the right music than your wedding day. With all of your friends and family gathered to celebrate your romantic union, you want to find the music that best expresses who you, as a couple are. We’ll go through the ceremony, step-by-step, to help you select the best music for you.

Pre-ceremony

As the guests file in and wait for the ceremony to start, the music can be any selection of songs that set the tone for the ceremony to follow. Some choose religious music, some pop songs.Some choose instrumental music, some have a vocalist perform. Often a bride and groom will choose to have the vocalist perform the most important song last. 

Wedding Ceremony Entrance Songs

Parents entrance

Since your parents will be entering on the first song, a classic might fit best here. Some good romantic tunes from the past includeWhen I Fall in Love All You Need is Love and Josh Groban - You Raise Me Up

Bridal party processional

The bridesmaids make their way down the aisle, trailed by the flower girl and ring bearer. In some weddings, groomsmen walk with the bridesmaids, but some couples choose to have the groomsmen at the front of the church with the (usually nervous) groom.

Unless you plan to have your bridal party dance in to the tunes of Chris Brown’s Forever ,chances are you’ll choose a classical piece for your bridal party entrance. Traditional choices include Canon in D Major by Pachelbel Four Seasons- VivaldiJoy of Man’s Desiring by Bach ,  and  Beethoven’s Ode to Joy

Bridal entrance

Usually the unveiling of the bride for the first time is a dramatic moment. The doors close behind the bridal party and the bride steps into place behind them. As the opening chords of Here Comes the Bride play, everyone stands and waits as the doors are flung open, revealing the beautiful bride.

CertainlyHere Comes the Bride  has become the most popular of bridal march songs, but it is not the only choice. Canon in D Major by Pachelbel  began to gain popularity after many young girls watched Princess Di walk down the aisle  walk down the aisle to the song in the 80s. But it’s your day. You can choose a song that expresses your individuality if you prefer.

Unity candle

Since lighting the unity candle can take several minutes, some couples choose to have music in this section of the ceremony as well. Classical works well in this part of the ceremony, or an instrumental version of your song as a couple. Some suggestions include The Wedding Song by Kenny G Amazing Grace , and We’ve Only Just Begun by The Carpenters

Recessional

Traditionally,Mendelssohn's Wedding March  is played as the bride and groom exit the church.The song has become almost unanimous with wedding recessionals.Jeremiah Clark’s Trumpet Voluntary  is another popular choice. But there’s no hard and fast rule that either song has to be played. These are just the most popular.

Conclusion

Whether you choose to go with tradition or make your own, new, traditions, the music at your wedding will become the backdrop to your special day. It will express who you are as a couple and help celebrate the beginning of your new life together.
