I just got an email from my ceremony musicians(2 acoustic guitars) and they were wondering what my music selections are going to be.
I knew I wanted to walk down the aisle to Ave Maria from the first time that I heard them play it but I am unsure about the rest.
I think for the bridal party I want a slow version of Canon D and for recessional Joy of a Man’s Desire.
However, I have no idea for when the guests arrive, when the mothers light the unity candle, and I also have a 2 minute break between when my readers read.
What music are you having played during your ceremony?

I had an acoustic guitar player for my wedding ceremony (which was Christian (Associated Gospel). Here is the music we had:
Jesu Joy of Man’s Desiring – Love this piece! This was for the wedding party processional
When You Wish Upon a Star – Bridal processional
Salut d’Amour – Played quietly under our vows. This song was playing when my DH proposed, so it had sentimental value!
All You Need is Love – Recessional!
Your muscians are making you choose music for when your guests are getting seated? My guitarist just winged that lol.

@DeathByDesign: Ya, he said that he could play ambiant music for the parts that i was unsure about but I was wanting to know if there were any pieces that would be good/sound really pretty for any of those parts that I need filled.
He does an awesome version of Train’s Marry Me(I actually prefer his version over the original) and was thinking of having him play/sing this during my 2 minute break between readers, I am just not sure if it will be too distracting having him sing or not. However, my FSIL, for her wedding, had her uncle sing Love is like a Butterfly, and it turned out really pretty. I’m jsut not sure.
I wish I could post his version of the song on here since I am so obsessed with it.

I’m going the non-traditional route! My processional is Vitamin String Quartet’s arrangement of Halleluja by Paramore, and the Recessional is Vitamin String Quartet’s arrangement of Viva La Vida by Coldplay! Both awesome and classic songs!
