Options for Ceremony music are endless! And you can even book live musicians. Depending on the kind of ceremony you have, recommendations for music can vary.

For a classic ceremony…

“Cannon in D, P.37” is perhaps the most classic ceremony song for every bride. Other classic options include "A Midsummer Night's Dream, Op. 61: IX. Wedding March," "Wedding March," “Ave Maria,” and “Ode to Joy.” These pieces are the perfect recipe to create the timeless feel you may be searching for.

For a twist…

Many couples are deciding to stray from the typical wedding hymns and opting for something trendy. A few recommendations include Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect,” Train’s “Marry Me,” and Elvis Presely’s “Can’t Help Falling in Love with You.”
