How to Choose Your Wedding Ceremony Music

wedding musicYour dream wedding would never be perfect without the perfect wedding ceremony music. Choosing your wedding music is a crucial part since it has the power to set a mood, evoke emotion and showcase "the" moment.

While some would prefer to stick to the traditional classical tune, other would look for a song, in most cases, a ballad, that captures the spirit. For most couples, they will choose the song that has the most sentimental value: the song that they first learned together or their "romantic theme" or the song that tells their love story.

Listed here are suggested classic and contemporary songs for wedding music according to different points of the ceremony.

There should be songs played as a prelude, when guests start arriving at the ceremony location and when they are already seated, then a special song when the mothers of the bride and groom are seated.  Classical wedding music can be most appropriate here.

1. Canon in D

2. Prelude in C

3. Greensleeves

4. Someone to Watch Over Me

5. A Father’s Song

6. I Do (Cherish You) by 98 Degrees

The most dramatic music must be played during the processional, or when the bridesmaids enter and walks up the aisle. The most joyous music is played in the recessional, when the bride and groom leave together.
