What about Robert Schumann’s "In the lovely month of May"? (Just the piano part, obviously.) It’s a bit down-tempo, but very wistful and romantic. Also good is Clara Schumann’s "Notturno", from Soirees Musicales. 

I guess it’s easier as a list:

From Schubert: (just the piano part)

–  Die Forelle

– Heidenroslein (D. 257)

– Standchen (D. 889)

From Liszt:

– Concert Etude No. 3 in D-Flat

– Liebestraum No. 1 or No. 3*

– Au bord d’une source (this is a bit faster than the others)

From Chopin:

– Nocturne in C Minor (Op. 48, No. 1)

– Prelude in E Minor (Op. 28, No. 4)

Robert Schumann:

– In the lovely month of May*

Clara Schumann:

– Notturno from Soiree Musicales*

The asterisked ones are my favorites, but really they’re all great for setting a romantic tone. They’re all popular, too, so you shouldn’t have problems finding them on youtube or elsewhere on the ‘nets.

I chose Dawn and Georgina from the Pride & Prejudice soundtrack.  I ordered the sheet music early and sent it to the musician 1 month before the wedding.  It’s beautiful, sounds classical, definitely romantic and not the standard fare.


You can listen to clips of the music online.  I bought the tunes and downloaded them onto my IPod.
