Ceremony Music Suggestions
Prelude Music
This is the music that is heard 15 to 30 minutes prior to your ceremony. At this time your guests are arriving and being seated. The Prelude music normally continues through the seating of the mothers, however it is a nice touch to have a special selection for them.

This is when the atmosphere for your wedding is established. It should compliment the mood you want whether religious, elegant, contemporary, or a mixture of styles.

There are a few general rules to keep in mind:
The music should be suitable as background music for prayer and light conversation. This is not the time for Kool & The Gang or other "celebration-type music". Discuss your music choices with your church or synagogue. Policies of many churches and synagogues will prohibit contemporary music.

Processional Music
There are usually two 2 processionals; one for the bridesmaids and flower girl and one for the bride to walk down the aisle. You may also have a separate selection for the seating of parents and grandparents before the bridesmaid. However, too many selections/changing of musical selections may be confusing and may not make it easy for all to "keep time" while walking down the aisle. It is usually advisable to keep it simple..

The bride's processional announces the bride and centers the attention on the bride. This is one of the most important and anticipated moments of the day!
