Most wedding ceremonies utilize the following musical format:

  • Musical Prelude - Usually starts a half hour before the actual ceremony begins. This provides a warm atmosphere for guests who arrive early for the ceremony.
  • Music for Special Seatings - One or more special selections are chosen to be played while important guests are being seated, such as the mother of the bride.
  • Bridesmaids Processional - A stately march-like musical selection playing during the entrance of the Bridesmaids. Traditionally, Trumpet Voluntary by Jeremiah Clark is an extremely elegant choice.
  • Wedding Processional - An even more elegant musical selection for the entrance of the Bride. The traditional Wedding Processional is Wagner’s Bridal Chorus from Lohengrin (“Here comes the Bride”).
  • Musical Interlude - A subdued musical selection performed during the ceremony, offering a musical change of a pace and a moment to reflect upon the significance of the occasion.
  • Wedding Recessional - A joyous musical selection celebrating the completion of the Wedding Ceremony used by the Wedding Party to make their exit. The traditional Wedding Recessional is Mendelsohn’s Wedding March.
  • Musical Postlude - The musical services continue while other guests exit.
