I’m staying very traditional for my church ceremony:

Procession Canon in D, followed by “Here Comes the Bride”

Recessional:  Ode to Joy, followed by the Halleluia Chorus

Right now I am trying to find something like Hoppipola, that isn’t Hoppipola.

Personally, I think the only truly traditional processional music is Here Comes the Bride. That’s what people will probably think of when you tell them you’re going with traditional music. I consider Canon in D a popular choice, but it isn’t THE traditional bridal music.

Edit: The rest of what was originally here was meant to go in a different post. Sorry!

Do whatever you want. We’re using Canon in D, but it’s because Fiance really, really likes it. Plus, we’re doing live music for the ceremony, and Canon in D is one of the easiest songs for the musician to time appropriately, and as a former wedding musician (the person playing our wedding is my teacher’s daughter), it was important to me to make her job less complicated. Also, it has that bit in the middle where all the sudden it gets grander-sounding, which is perfect for us b/c between the short aisle and the really small wedding party, i’ll be walking to the same song as everyone else, so if I go down to the cool part it marks me as “special”.
