I think those are all really pretty choices! 

These are the songs I chose:


Prelude Music:

            “Spring” from The Four Seasons

            “Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring”

            “Sheep May Safely Graze”

            “Air” from Water Music

 Seating of Parents and Grandparents:

            “Thanks Be to Thee”


            “Canon in D”

            “Bridal March”

 Hymn after the vows:

            “Ave Maria”


            “Wedding March”

            “Trumpet Voluntary”

@Willow1991:  You might want to switch things around just a little bit – “Ave Maria” is a little bit odd for the bride’s processional, but it would work nicely for the seating of the parents. You could use Prelude in C Major for the wedding party and Canon in D for you …

The reason I say “Ave Maria” is odd for the processional is that it’s a Marian hymn, and it seems like it’s a little muddled as to whether it’s being sung “for Mary” or “for the bride” if it’s used for the bride’s entrance. It’s a beautiful piece of music, make no mistake – it’s just probably a little better suited to a different position in the liturgy. (If you’re having a Mass, it would make a beautiful Communion hymn or post-Communion meditation; if you’re leaving flowers at Mary’s statue that would be a great place to use it, etc.)
