A Classical Guitar Wedding


A standard wedding is usually divided into four main parts:

  1. The Prelude
  2. The Processional
  3. The Interlude
  4. The Recessional

The Prelude

The prelude to the wedding is the time when guests are being seated. The music for the prelude should be quiet and reflective.

Recommended pieces: Air on the G-String by J. S. Bach
Capricho Arabe by Francisco Tarrega
Largo by George Handel
Canon in D by Johann Pachelbel

The Processional

Typical wedding processions have two parts: the wedding party procession, and the bridal procession.

The wedding party processional music should have a distinct, steady beat so that it reflects what is currently going on - walking. One of most traditional pieces for the wedding party procession would be Canon in D.

A different piece needs to be played when the bride walks down the aisle. This is the most exciting part of the wedding, so it deserves different music.

Recommended pieces: Canon in D by Johann Pachelbel (most traditional)
Bridal Chorus by Richard Wagner (most traditional)

The Interlude

An interlude is the time when the bride and groom participate in a custom or tradition like a sand-pouring ceremony or a unity candle lighting. Choose music that appropriately reflects your ceremony.

Recommended pieces: Air on the G-String by J. S. Bach
Recuerdos de la Alhambra

The Recessional

Finally, the recessional: when the bride and groom have finished the ceremony. There is a lot of freedom as to what song/piece is played during the recession. If you or your fiance have a favorite song/piece, you may consider requesting it for your recessional.

Recommended pieces: Trumpet Voluntary by Jeremiah Clarke
Wedding March by Felix Mendelssohn
