Tips for Selecting Your Wedding Ceremony Music
- If your bridal party is fewer than six (including flower girls/ring bearers) and your parents/honored guests are few than four, we suggest choosing only one piece of music to accompany all of them down the aisle. When the mothers are lighting large candelabras immediately after coming down the aisle or when the aisle is long (more than 150 feet), separate music work well.
- Even for couples choosing non-traditional ceremony music, we still recommend using a fairly recognizable traditional piece for the parents/attendants’ processional to minimize confusion (guests will be listening for something familiar). A traditional piece for the wedding party will also make the contemporary piece for the bride more memorable.
- When using two separate pieces for parents and attendants, we advise not to choose a march-like piece, since it could diminish the impact of the bride’s entrance.
