I am having a family member who is a cellist play for our processional and recessonial at our wedding.
Could you guys give me a few options I should check out to have her play?
PS: I hate “here comes the bride” 🙂

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.

I love the Bach – Cello Suite No. 1 in G Major BWV1007 – but it’s not particularly “wedding”‘ish 🙂

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
