Trumpet Voluntary is very traditional (regal)

or Canon D- Any of these you can listen to by looking at youtube.

She may also have a few ideas too.

We had a violinist that played Canon in D. For the family enter she played Jesu Joy of Man’s Desiring. They also played a bunch of other music beforehand. I kind of let her pick it out. We bought her a violin book of popular classic wedding songs, and let her go for it.

I think the previous suggestions are all nice. And depending on how good the cellist is, you might just ask her what she thinks would sound best?

We had a cello and violin duo. Here are the songs we used:

Seating of the mothers and grandmothers: Sheep May Safely Graze

Entrance of the Groom: Trumpet Voluntary

Bridal party processional: Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring

Bride’s processional: Cannon in D

Recessional: Spring Allegro from Vivaldi’s Four Seasons
