HI!

We just did our ceremony music yesterday and I was the same way – I didn’t even know what pieces, what parts, where music went, etc?

Will you have an organist or musician playing? If so, go ahead and schedule your meeting with them. We met with our organist yesterday and she had some recommended suggestions for each piece/part that she played through.

Lean on your vendors and professionals. They’ll help!

Even if you’re not ready ot meet with them for your formal meeting, ask them your questions! At least then you can do some research on your own… We did a YouTube search for wedding music to get an idea of things we liked. So when we did go in for our meeting yesterday, we already knew things we didn’t want, and Fiance and I had already discussed ideas of the “feeling” we wanted.

Here are some ideas for what parts you’ll pick pieces for…

Prelude (probably the musician’s choice since they’ll play for 30 min?)
Seating of Mothers/Families
Bridesmaid Processional
Brides Processional * – we were told to pick this our FIRST, since its most important and base the other processional selections around that
Unity Candle – if you do that
Flowers to Mary – if you do that
REsponse Psalms after readings
Maybe a hymn between readings and communion
Communion – if you’re doing that
Recessional

Hope that helps!!

We went to websites that had suggestions, then went to youtube to hear the songs.
