Wedding Music: Classical Music & Your Ceremony | North Carolina Wedding Planner

Picking music for your reception is usually fun and easy because most couples are picking popular music, but when it comes to the ceremony many brides aren’t sure where to start. I will try to give you a few ideas, but before choosing your music you should check with your Officiant to see if there are any restrictions on the music you can choose. They may be able to help make some suggestions and they can clearly lay out any guidelines required when choosing your ceremony music. This is particularly important for a religious ceremony. For example, Catholic weddings do not use secular music (read popular/non-religious music).
Once you have the guidelines/restrictions from the Officiant, you can start choosing your music. You will need to choose between classical or modern music, or maybe a mixture of both.
Classical music is incredibly beautiful during a wedding ceremony, especially during the processional. A few of my favorites are “Canon In D” by Pachelbel, “Jesu Joy of Man’s Desiring” by Bach, “Air on the G String” by Bach, “Trumpet Voluntary” by Clarke, “Wedding March” by Mendelssohn and “Spring” by Vivaldi (from The Four Seasons).
