Try Trumpet Voluntary in D major. We are using that instead of the here comes the bride song.

Originally I wanted to hire a string quartet and have them play the Wedding March from Mozart’s Marriage of Figaro.  It’s one of my favorite operas and a nice alternative to Wagner or Mendelssohn.

However, one of our groomsmen is a professional bagpipe player so he is going to provide the ceremony music instead.  We haven’t figured out what he should play yet, though.

Look into Handle’s “Water Music”- there is a particularly pretty piece called “Air”.  I have also been at weddings where Ave Maria was played and also Canon in D. Both of these are a little on the slow side but they can be very dramatic and romantic.  Another beautiful piece is Sleepers Awake by Bach.

Good Luck on the wedding plans!

Cannon in D is a popular choice and Air on G by Bach is beautiful. Also “Water music suite 2” by Handel is pretty, and Claire de Lune by Debussy (but may only be able to be played on the piano… not sure). I will be going down the alise to Trumpet Voluntary bc I play the trumpet and I just really dont like the wedding march. Hope this helped! Good luck!
