Help! Ceremony music!

Hello my fellow September Brides!  Congrats on your upcoming weddings!

I am new to this board and am looking for some help.

I am getting to the point of starting to stress the details!!! We are trying to come up with some options for our ceremony music.  We are getting married at an outdoor/barn/farm venue. 

Anyone have any suggestions for prelude, processional, interlude, recessional music?
I'm not quite sure that we want classical music, probably something a little more fitting for the rustic setting.  We like all genres of music so I think that makes it even more difficult!

We are open to any suggestions, we are just starting this search so any help would be greatly appreciated! 

Thank you in advance!

Re: Help! Ceremony music!

  • Have you considered going through songs that have special meaning to you as a couple, and finding instrumental versions or if your pianist can play them??  We are doing all romantic Beatles songs for the pre-ceremony music, I am walking down the aisle to Imagine, and we are still working on the recessional, but our pianist is fine with learning/playing all of them for us.

  • I am in LOVE with Vitamin String Quartet. They do classical versions of pop songs. But for you, maybe guitar acoustic would be better? Search youtube for guitar acoustic versions of your favorite songs. Then see if you can find it on itunes or google music or something? I know some smart people out there know how to take a youtube clip and make it a music file, but I don't. :)

  • We are having an acoustic guitarist play for us. We are having the classic songs (i.e. Canon in D for processional), yet it will still have the nice laid back vibe that we are looking for. 
  • Roy Todd music on YouTube has some beautiful piano music. I will be walking down the aisle to his "Perfect Wedding Music". (I tear up every time I listen to it.) I think the juxtaposition of the rustic ambiance of your venue and the sparkle of a piano would be breathtaking.

    Oh, I really want to use that version of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow"!  I really like it.  Unfortunately, I don't think anyone else is very fond of it, so I might just find a way to use it in the reception, or just before the ceremony.

    Vitamin String Quartet is a great place to start!
