Ceremony Music Staples
Prelude: Quiet, gentle "background" music played at the beginning of the ceremony, as guests arrive and are seated.
Interlude: A song during the lighting of the unity candle or at another point in the ceremony. It can be instrumental or vocal. "Hymne a l’Amour" by Josh Groban, or the “Wedding Song (there is love)” by Peter, Paul and Mary are popular choices.
Processional: Stately music played as the bridal party walks down the aisle, with the bride and her escort at the very end (e.g., Pachelbel's famous "Canon in D"). Often the bride's walk is accompanied by a different tune (e.g., Wagner's "Bridal Chorus").
