Music

Ceremony

 
Prelude Favorites...

Try to pick music that fits you and your soon to be spouse.  If you like country, and want to include music in your ceremony, use a country song.  If you enjoy classical or even rock, find something that fits your service.  Keep in mind those in attendance, especially close family, and songs that have meant a lot during your lives. Make sure you consult with the clergy before making any music decisions.  Many churches have policies on what is and is not permitted.  

If you choose not to have any special music during the ceremony, play a CD while guests are arriving.
