Wedding Ceremony Songs

By: Jaclyn Holtzman, Editor,

33 Wedding Ceremony Songs

Most couples obsess over their first dance song, but even more important than that are the wedding ceremony songs. There are a lot of significant decisions to be made regarding the tunes that grace your wedding ceremony. The prelude music plays as guests are seated by the ushers. The music then changes as the processional begins and the attendants approach the altar. Once the flower girl has made her way down the aisle and adequately spread the petals, it is time for the bride to enter. The music stops, the guests rise, and the bridal processional begins. Throughout the ceremony, the couple may choose to have other songs sung or played, whether by a live band, a close friend, an organ player, or by another medium. These can be religious or simply meaningful to the couple. The final song is played as the couple and bridal party make their way back down the aisle to exit.

With a minimum of four songs, it can be difficult to figure out the music for wedding ceremonies. To ease the pain, we have gathered some traditional as well as some more offbeat choices for you to browse. Hopefully you'll be inspired and find the perfect tunes for your big day.
