Many women and men are out of their depths, having to choose the wedding ceremony music. This is one of the biggest stress for the couple who is planning a wedding by themselves. Often each set of parents will have very different ideas about what music should be used and this can create a lot of tensions. The traditional bridal march may not be everyone’s “cup of tea”.
There are some great contemporary songs that would be appropriate for processional and recessional, as well as interludes. Many of these songs can be found in instrumental versions as well as with words. Brides today are looking more to songs that have meaning to them and their finance, as opposed to upholding traditions. The classics are great but think about it, the first time they were used it was because the bride and groom may have met at a concert by the original artist.
The decision of music will be dictated by the wedding venue. Many religions do not allow any modern music to be played in their buildings. Choosing music that has a unique connection to the family’s heritage can be a great choice. Below is a list of songs that are modern and can be used to make a statement in a wedding ceremony.
Billy Joel - “She’s Got A Way” The carpenters – “We’ve only Just Begun”
The Cure – “Just Like Heaven” Stevie Wonder – “Signed, Sealed, Delivered”
