The following are some suggestions for choosing wedding music.
Prelude Music: Background music performed while guests are being seated. If you do not have particular requests for this music, select a category of music you would like performed (for example, light classical music or romantic popular love songs).
Processional Music: This music begins when the officient and the groom approach the altar. The bridesmaids (along with the groomsmen who may join them) continue to walk to this selection, as well as the flower girls and ring bearers. This piece ends when the entire wedding party reaches the altar.
The Bride's Entrance: Traditionally, the bride enters to fanfare music that announces her arrival. This piece ends when the bride reaches the altar.
Recessional Music: This is a triumphant, quickly-paced piece played as the newlyweds walk up the aisle as husband and wife, followed by the wedding party.
Postlude Music: These are lively selections played as guests file out. As with prelude music, if you do not have particular requests, choose the category of selections you would like performed.
Optional Music Selections
Before the ceremony, there may be a particular selection for the seating of the mothers and grandparents.
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.
Important Note for Weddings: Check with your officiant (minister, rabbi, priest, etc.) before making your music selections. Some faiths, houses of worship or officiants do not allow secular (non-religious) music or particular selections to be played.
