my friend had her harpist do "seasons of love" from rent.  oh my gosh, totally unexpected, right?  but wow, it sounded sooo good!  you might want to just pick out a couple of different songs that you love and ask your harpist if she can play it.  i don’t think it has to be a classical song at all!

Ooh a harpist! how pretty! 🙂

I suggest that you do a google search on "wedding music harp" (or something similiar) and you may find something you like! I just did the search and found a harpist’s website where she lists her repertoire:

 hope it helps!

We have a harp/classical guitar combo for the ceremony and cocktail hour. One website I found helpful was CD Baby (odn’t even remember how I found this website!). By no means have we finalized our selection so I look forward more suggestions.

KP – your link was super helpful! Printed it out to review at home tonight. Thanks!

I wouldn’t say ‘here comes the bride’ doesn’t sound right on harp at all!  In fact, I had it in my wedding! 😀  Now, harpists’ styles will vary and all, but I thought it was beautiful.  In my mind, it sounds stuffy and pompous on the organ (hope I’m not offending anybody who chose to do that!) and elegant, graceful,and subtle on the harp.

 

I’ll see if I can find the list of songs from our processional and recessional and post it here later…
