Wedding Ceremony Music Checklist

Here is a complete checklist of different musical moments for the ceremony.

Celebratory but subtle background music that plays as guests arrive. This should start between 15-30 minutes before the ceremony begins.

This signals the start of the ceremony and continues to play as the bridal party walks down the aisle. Couples can choose to have a second song strike up when the bride appears at the aisle.

This is a featured song that is played to highlight certain moments in the ceremony, such as the moment of prayer, the lighting of unity candles etc..

This is the song that plays as the newly married couple walks back up the aisle as husband and wife.

Similar to the prelude but a little more upbeat. This is what plays in the background as guests exit the ceremony area.
