Wedding Music Suggestions
The Bride's Entrance to the Processional
Traditionally, the bride enters to fanfare music that announces her arrival. This piece ends when the bride reaches the altar.
A triumphant, almost quickly-paced piece played as the newlyweds walk up the aisle as husband and wife, followed by the wedding party.
Lively selections played as guests file out
During the ceremony, you may wish to select special pieces to be performed during the lighting of the unity candle, communion or a scriptural or poetry reading. These selections should hold special significance to the bride and groom, as all guests are actively listening. Keep in mind, additional readings and music added between ceremony activities tend to lengthen the ceremony.
Important Note: Check with your officient (minister, rabbi, priest, etc.) before making musical selections. Some faiths, houses of worship or officients do not allow secular (non-religious) music or particular selections. In addition, some will not permit music to be performed during the exchange of vows or as background behind the entire ceremony.
