Ceremonial songs happen anywhere between the Processional and Recessional and are a great way to include your family and friends. It can be music that happens during a unity ritual - lighting a candle, exchanging flowers, etc. Or, it can be a musical performance by someone close to you that is accompanied by the piano. You can even request an MP3 of any accompaniments to send to your performers months in advance so they can practice along!
Recessionals capture the excitement of being announced as a couple for the first time! They are played with higher energy and spirit.
Wedding Song Choices
A good choice for a processional often has a slower, grander tempo that will fit the walking pace of the wedding party. The length of the song can be flexible match the length of time it takes for the wedding party to walk the aisle.
