Choosing your processional and recessional music can be fun! If you’re looking to go the classical route, then you have to look no further than these songs: Wedding March by Mendelssohn, Bridal Chorus by Wagner, Canon in D by Pachelbel, or Arrival of the Queen of Sheba by Handel. You’ll have heard these at many weddings before, and they are all approved by mothers, churches and generally wedding goers everywhere.
If you want to walk down the isle to something that is more personal to you, then rummage through your CD’s and find some great music there! But if you need some help finding some great songs you would love for some one to play on an acoustic guitar or piano, we’ve got some great ideas for you!
Here’s some contemporary classics that sound great on an acoustic guitar.
More Than Words– Extreme (1990)
Good Riddance– Green Day (1997)
Somewhere Over The Rainbow– Israel Kamakawiwo’Ole (on the ukelele)
If you want to have songs with words, here are some ideas:
I Only Have Eyes For You– The Flamingos
The Look of Love– Diana Krall
What the World Needs Now is Love– Dionne Warwick
If you have a favorite movie, check out the sound track and see if anything strikes your fancy. And make sure that if you’re having a song playing the lyrics that you know the words aren’t going to offend, or say something you wouldn’t want on your wedding day.
