Ceremony Music

Recommended Posts

I was just wondering what other brides have used for ceremony music or what they plan on using and how they timed the music.

 

I want there to be music before the ceremony starts and when the groom and BM enter also when the MOH enters and when I enter. I'm not sure if I should use one song or two different songs.

 

Let me know if you have and ideas or what worked for you. huh02.gif

I love Pachebel's Canon. But it was used at my brother's wedding this summer and I really want something different.

 

I look forward to seein people's responses :)

BM's walked down the aisle to Katie Melua's "Just Like Heaven." Everyone thought that song sounded like a dream ... and it was just ssoo perfect for a DW.

I haven't figured out timing or anything... but I really want everyone to walk down the aisle to the song Be My Music by Cait Agus Sean. It is beautiful.

I love swing/big band music, so we used that era for our music theme for the ceremony...we had picked 10 songs to play while our guests were seated and then we had the following for the ceremony...

 

Groom: Woodchoppers Ball - Woody Herman

MOH/BM: Tuxedo Junction - Glenn Miller Orchestra

Bride: Moonlight Serenade - Glenn Miller Orchestra

Recessional: In the mood - Glenn Miller Orchestra

 

Can you tell I love Glenn Miller! :)

I'm in the same boat. Been asking around for ideas. I'll post with updates as I find ideas.

I'm getting married in Hawaii and I am in the same boat as a lot of our fellow engaged ladies!! Once we're getting married in Hawaii we want a Hawaiian song with lots of meaning sang in the Hawaiian language, however it's hard!! I'm thinking of having my Uncle (he's native to Hawaii and lives there and so musically talented) play his guitar or ukleili (sp?) and sing gently during the ceremony. It would be so meaningful to me. And he knows lots of songs so maybe we can just have him do one half of the song in Hawaiian and then sing it back in English?? Or I can do Jason Mraz "I'm Yours" It's such a sweet song, but too fast to walk to?? What do you think?? I also like the song in the movie 50 First Dates by Israel Kamakawiwo'ole called "Somewhere Over the Rainbow". Lots of meaning behind that but again too fast?? If Jason Mraz and Israel Kamakawiwo'ole song are too fast I may just have to chose one to be played as we as a married couple walk off of the aisle and one to play as we walk into the reception.

 

 

Here you can hear the songs on YouTube:

Jason Mraz "I'm Yours"

Israel Kamakawiwo'ole "Somewhere Over the Rainbow"

    • My wedding date is set for the next month but not found any wedding planner finally got one wedding planner. its very very help for my wedding arrangement thank you indian wedding company
    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
    • Welcome. I am a past Dreams Los Cabos bride. Please let us know if we can assist in any way. We have some great promotions (bride and groom fly free, comped rooms and upgrades).    info@wrighttravelagency.com
