Songs and Suggestions

*If your wife's brother is your brother in law, wouldn't that make your wife your own sister in law?
The Bridal "intro" - (Processionals):  Bridal Chorus, by Wagner
Suite No. 1 "Rondeau", by Mouret
Canon, by Pachelbel
Trumpet Voluntary, by Clarke

The Bridal "outro" - (Recessionals):

Wedding March (from "A Midsummer Night's Dream"), by Mendelssohn
Toccata from Organ Symphony No. 5, byWidor
Reverie, by Debussy
"Alla Hornpipe" from Water Music, by Handel


Generally, classical music is played, although there are many modern songs as well. These songs may easily be changed with the "during the ceremony" and "after the ceremony" musical numbers. It's the Bride's day, and she gets a bunch of discretion. In no particular order, here are a few suggestions:

Suite for Orchestra no 3 in D major
Johann Sebastian Bac

Forever In Love
Kenny G

 "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring" 
Composer: Johann Sebastian Bach 

Water Music Suite no 2 in D major, 
George Frideric Handel 

Water Music Suite no 1 in F major,
George Frideric Handel 

"Bridal Chorus" 
Richard Wagner 

Canon and Gigue for 3 Violins and Basso Continuo in D major
Johann Pachelbel 

Brandenburg Concerto no 2 in F major,  2nd movement
Johann Sebastian Bach 

Symphony for Organ no 5 in f minor, Op. 42 no 1: 5th movement, Toccata
Charles-Marie Widor

L'enfance du Christ, Op. 25: Trio
Hector Berlioz 

Songs (4) for Female Voices, 2 Hrn and Harp, Op. 17: no 1, Es tont ein voller Harfenklang
Johannes Brahms

Chorale Preludes (11) for Organ, Op. 122: no 8, Es ist ein Ros entsprungen
Johannes Brahms


Of course, this music is soft as well. Generally, instrumental versions are best, with the occasional soloist. You are free to choose any of the "Before The Ceremony Songs" as your tastes allow.

"Ave Maria" 
Composer: Franz Schubert

Mass for 3 Voices, Organ, Harp, Cello and Double Bass in A, M 61/Op. 12: Panis angelicus 
Cesar Franck


Composer: Helen Guy d' Hardelot

West Side Story: One Hand, One Heart 
Leonard Bernstein 

Clair de Lune
Claude Debussy


Fiddler on the Roof: Sunrise, Sunset 
(Choose the style or version you prefer!)

Serse, HWV 40: Ombra mai fu "Largo" 
George Frideric Handel

Symphony for Organ no 5 in f minor, Op. 42 no 1: 5th movement, Toccata 
Charles-Marie Widor

Indian Queen, Z 630: Trumpet Tune and Air 
Henry Purcell

The Toast of New Orleans: Be My Love 
Nicholas Brodszky Salut d'aour Op. 12
Sir Edward Elgar Solomon, Arrival of the Queen of Sheba
George Fridreic Handel

The First Dance
This totally depends on your own musical tastes. It can be the first song you danced together to, the first you heard together, or even a song that best describes your relationship. It doesn't even have to be slow. As always, the Bride has total discretion, although, for this one, the Groom should have some say too!
