Bridal Processional Music

In the past, your choice of processional music was Mendelssohn’s Wedding March and Wagner’s Bridal Chorus.

These days, tastes have changed. You have many more options than you used to. More contemporary music choices include:
  • Pachelbel’s Canon
  • Delibes’ Flower Duet
  • Verdi’s March (from Aida)
  • Vivaldi Spring (from the Four Seasons)
  • Handel’s Hornpipe (from the Water Music Suite)
  • Beethoven’s Ode to Joy
  • Bach’s Air on the G String
Now, if you have a destination wedding, you may or may not have a procession or music. This is something you need to consider and work trough.

For us, music was very important. We hired a local violinist to play for about a half-hour before the ceremony and about 10 minutes after.
