HELPFUL HINTS

We've played for hundreds of weddings over the last 15 years

and have learned a few things along the way! Selecting music

for your ceremony might be a little daunting, but don't worry,

if you follow our advice below, it can be an easy and fun process. 

Please note, the music suggestions below are only ideas.

The repertoire varies for each ensemble and the suggestions

below may not be available for your ensemble. When selecting

your music, please visit the repertoire page for your ensemble

and select music from the lists there! 

PRELUDE MUSIC​

You actually don't need to pick a thing for the prelude music, unless you want to! We typically play a mix of light classical music for the ceremony. Feel free to make some requests in the form if you have something different in mind like more modern and romantic songs. 

FAMILY AND ATTENDANTS PROCESSIONAL​

We recommend using just one song for everyone in the family and bridal party. Using multiple songs for the family, and attendants can sometimes feel choppy and broken up, while one song keeps the processional moving and everything flows nicely.

BRIDE/BRIDES/GROOMS PROCESSIONAL 

This is your big moment when all eyes are on you, and your music will help set the tone for your walk down the aisle. There are a couple styles for music that you can choose depending on your personality and vision.

 

CLASSICALLY CHIC

These pieces are perfect for a traditional bride,

looking for a timeless song. Examples include:

Canon in D - Pachelbel

Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring - Bach 

PURE ROYALTY

These pieces are for the traditional bride looking to

make a strong entrance! Examples include: 

Trumpet Voluntary - Purcell 

La Rejoussaince from Royal Fireworks - Handel

 

THE ROMANTIC

These songs help create a sweet, romantic walk towards your fiancé, just make sure they have their tissues ready! Examples include:

Claire de Lune - Debussy 

Flower Song Duet - Delibes

La Vie En Rose - Piaf

THE INNOVATOR

For the bride looking for something extra special, surprise your guests with something a little different! We love when couples make their personal and your guests will love it! Examples include: 

What a Wonderful World - Armstrong

Leia's Theme from Star Wars - Williams

Here Comes the Sun - Beatles

RECESSIONAL

We always recommend something upbeat, celebratory and

fun for your recessional, after all, it's time to party!

TRADITIONAL 

It's celebrate, but let's keep things classy, ok? Examples include: 

Hornpipe from Water Music - Handel

Wedding March - Mendelssohn 

MODERN

Everybody get your dancing shoes on! Examples include:

Marry You - Bruno Mars

Best Day of My Life - American Authors

All You Need Is Love - The Beatles

COCKTAIL HOUR MUSIC​

Exactly like your prelude music, you actually don't need to pick a thing for the cocktail hour, unless you want to! We typically play a mix of upbeat and romantic jazz and pop songs. Feel free to make some requests in the form if you have any "must plays" or "do not play!".
