How many songs, if any, will be sung at your wedding? And where do you typical place that in the ceremony I have been to tons of weddings and have been in quite a few but for the life of me can not figure that out.

I have songs here:
When the party walks in
When I walk in
We we light the unity candle
When we leave
Our ceremony is filled with several prayers, a cord ceremony and jumping the broom so I left out alot of unnecessary music.
I hope this helps.

Thanks for the feedback. Yes this helps a lot. I’m just trying to make sure I’m not “underdoing” (if that is a word) the amount of songs for the ceremony.

i have prelude songs (lighting candlabras/seating parents/gparents)
bridal party walks in
i walk in
worship song/solo song (after the charge/before the pledge)
then another worship song during the unity sand/candle
and then a song as we leave

We’re just have three (plus ambient music before we arrive): bridal party processional; bride’s processional; recessional.

We had 4 total…
Bridal Party entrance
Worship song after our vows & kiss, before we took communion together (we chose this instead of sand ceremony)
Bride & Groom exit

I’m with bythebook…. I think we’re just doing 3. Processional, bride’s processional, and recessional. I’m not a big fan of random music being played during the ceremony….. as a guest, I’m never sure what is supposed to be happening when this happens and i don’t know, it’s just weird watching the bride and groom stand there after they light a candle or pour sand (which we want to skip too). 🙂

@OliveT: We plan on praying together during the song (unity candle/sand), I think that it’s a great time for that during the ceremony and it wont look awkward to spectators, hopefully 🙂

@ciaradal: No – that will be nice. I’m thinking of the last wedding I went to where the bride and groom just kind of stood there watching all of us and i just wasn’t sure what was supposed to be happening. And it was a loooooooooong song.

We didn’t have a vocalist at all. We hired a string quartet to do all of the music.

Thanks ladies for the feedback. I really haven’t thought much about music for the bridal party entrance and now that I think about it I don’t want the “Here comes the bride” processional song played when I’m walking down the isle. I think I have an idea of how I want it to go. You ladies have been a big help!
