I am!!! Well, only for guests arriving and for MY processional. But the rest of the ceremony music still has a holiday vibe to it. If you’re not using Christmas music what are you using?
Here’s my list:
Guests Arriving: “O Tannenbaum”, “Greensleeves”, “The Christmas Song”, “Christmas Is Coming” all by Vince Guaraldi Trio
Bridesmaids: “Magic In The Air” by Badly Drawn Boy
Me: “Christmastime is Here”(Alternate Vocal Take 5) by Vince Guaraldi Trio
Recessional: “You Are The Best Thing” by Ray Lamontagne

My list is not written in stone, but I have considered these songs during the ceremony:
Bridal Processional- Christmas Canon Rock
My entrance – Carol of the Bells (Instrumental: Home for the Holidays, 101 String Orchestra)
I will probably have a few more instrumental Christmas songs mixed into the music while we are eating.

I need help! My wedding is literally 3 days before Christmas so of course I am working some Christmas music into my wedding, but not wanting to go overboard. We’re not having a traditional wedding so I am also incorporating String Quartet Tribute songs such as Viva La Vida (Coldplay). So far this is what I have come up with:
Prelude: Crash Into Me-Dave Matthews Band (Instrumental) and Viva La Vida- Coldplay (Instrumental)
Bridal Processional: Carol of the Bells – George Winston
Bride Entrance: the first minute and forty seconds of Christmas Canon Rock
Recessional: (TO BE DETERMINED)
Is it ok to mix all of these together? Any ideas for my Recessional? I was considering a song by the Beach Boys but then thought it wouldn’t flow…

I am having a Catholic wedding, so it will be religious type of music. I am having beautiful singers/guitarists. They will play Canon in D, and some other pretty religious songs….they can also play some romantic, non-religious songs, but I have yet to pick them out.
However, at my reception I plan to use Christmas music for the cocktail hour and maybe for the dining hour?

We plan to include Christmas music. Not sure where or what as of yet.
