Wedding Ceremony Music Basics

Choosing the right wedding ceremony music can seem like a difficult task. How many musicians will you need? What types of instruments should you have? Which songs should you select? There are many decisions you will need to make before you can finalize your wedding ceremony music. That’s where we come in! With over 20 years of experience providing beautiful music for weddings, we know a thing or two about music. Take a look at some of our tips for selecting your ceremony music.

1. Figure out size & logistics.

Before you start getting quotes for your wedding ceremony music, you’ll first want to figure out the logistics of your wedding ceremony venue. Are you getting married outside where there is no electrical access? Are you saying “I do” in a small church? A harpist may not be loud enough for a grand church, just as a piano may not be appropriate for an outdoor ceremony. You will want to make sure the size of the musical ensemble fits the size of your venue and amount of guests you’ll be having. Our owner, Maura, will work with you to make sure we have the appropriate size ensemble and instrument choices for your wedding ceremony location.

2. Learn ceremony basics.

Typically, ceremony music is split into three parts, the prelude, processional and recessional. Prelude music begins when guests start being seated, about 15 minutes prior to the ceremony start time. Prelude music is usually light and soft. The processional music begins when the family and wedding party enters the venue. This music is a sign that the wedding is starting and for guests to take their seats. The same song can be played for the family and bridal party entrances. However, we love the idea of playing different songs to distinguish between who is entering the venue – family, groomsmen, bridesmaids, etc. The recessional music signals the end of the wedding ceremony, and begins just at that time, when the married couple kiss. This music is upbeat and cheerful, a celebration of the wedding ceremony that just took place.

3. Listen to music samples.

You probably have a few songs in mind for your wedding ceremony music, whether from attending weddings or searching for ideas online. There can be several different versions of a song. To be sure you are choosing the correct version and song for your wedding, we suggest listening to samples of the song online or from your musicians’ website.
