Music thus plays an important role in each part of the wedding ceremony. No wedding can be completed without the tunes and rhythm of music. Before the music is finally decided, check with officials if the music selected are appropriate or not.  

Your music should reflect the personalities of both bride and groom, and your selections can be as unique as your relationship. If you�d like something a little different from the usual Wagner Bridal Chorus or the Trumpet Voluntary, you might want to consider Celtic music. There are lots of choices as to instruments and musical style - from stately to exuberant - to suit any type of ceremony.

Popular instruments include flute, Celtic harp, violin, or hammered dulcimer, either solo or as a duet. Any of these instruments could also accompany a singer. They are also very effective in outdoor locations where organ music is not an option. When making your choice, consider the size of your space and degree of formality you are seeking. Be sure to communicate this to your musician's) so that they can suggest appropriate music.

You will want to plan music for before the ceremony, as guests are gathering, for the processional and recessional, and for any special interludes during the wedding, such as a candle lighting or flower-presentation. You will probably also want the music to continue after the recessional, while guests are still in the area.

You might select music by 18th century Irish Harper Turlough OCarolan. Among his many compositions is one he wrote for his daughter�s wedding - Carolans Dowry. It makes a wonderful joyous recessional. There are many beautiful Scottish, Irish, and Welsh airs and pastorales to choose for prelude and interlude music. Familiar hymns like Amazing Grace or Morning has Broken are also in keeping with traditional Celtic music selections.

If you are being married in a church or synagogue, you�ll want to discuss your musical preferences with the officiant or music director; sometimes there are music guidelines to be considered.

And don't forget bagpipes! The pipes are great for the processional or recessional. If your ceremony is indoors and in a rather small space, consider having the piper play from the entryway. At one recent wedding, the piper led the recessional - right out the door of the chapel and to the reception hall - followed by the wedding party and all of the guests!


What are requirements of your church regarding appropriate music?

Must you use church musicians? What is the cost for church musicians?

May you use recorded music?

May secular love songs be used during the ceremony or must music be liturgical.

Can secular music be used during the gathering time prior to the beginning of the ceremony or after the recessional as people are leaving?

May soloists be used or are there some songs (such as Our Father) which must be sung by the community?

May outside musicians be brought in, and may they used existing sound equipment or must they bring their own equipment?

Does your church have a list of music that is acceptable for wedding?

Do you have a friend who would like to sing or perform at your ceremony?

Are there any cultural or ethnic songs that you would like to have included?

Will you be able to use a traditional wedding march or will you have to find professional music that is liturgical?

Do you prefer a soloist or small group?

What instruments do you want for your music?
