Music for the Aisle
Some marrying couples don’t give much thought to ceremony music. Most only think of Here Comes the Bride; there aren’t too many songs directly associated with the tradition. These days more and more couples are toning up their ceremony with a variety of songs, musicians, and singers.
If carefully selected, music can provide an atmosphere to enhance the mood and meaning of your ceremony. Maybe some of the songs you pick will reflect the happiness you feel as you and your future spouse begin your marriage.
If you plan on using the services of musicians, singers, or your songs, you might want to check with the officiant in charge of your ceremony. Most religions have restrictions on special selections during the ceremony; some may be very open to what you would like.
In general, ceremony music is broken up into four parts, prelude, processional, ceremony, and recessional. Each of these four parts has its use and style; you should choose music that is suitable for each part.
The prelude lasts from the time the guests start arriving until all of them are seated, and the mother of the bride is ready to begin her entrance. There are many options for music here, upbeat, slow, or a mix of both. You want the prelude to set a mood as well as entertain your guests while they are waiting.
The end of the prelude, right before the processional, is the best time for a soloist or choir to sing a song. While this song is being sung the mother of the bride is seated.
This is the music that accompanies the wedding party as they make their way down the aisle. A traditional march helps to set the pace for all who walk down the aisle. When the bride is ready to walk down the aisle, she might have the option to keep the same pace as the bridesmaid before her, or she may have chosen music especially for her. Some brides decided to have the same music but played in a different tempo, or with an audience pause before it begins.
The music played while the wedding ceremony takes place is strangely enough called ceremony music. The right music played or sung can enhance the mood and contribute to the meaning of the marriage ceremony. Try to play a short piece during the lighting of the unity candle. If Communion is part of the tradition, this is a good time for another vocal performance.
This is the exit music. This song should be full of joy and be very upbeat to reflect your happiness and joy at being joined for life to the one you love.
