Wedding Prelude Music

The wedding prelude is the time before the bride arrives and the guests and mothers of the intended couple are seated. It's important during most weddings to play appropriate music at this time. Traditional prelude music may include classical composers such as Bach, Haydn, Tchaikovsky and Mozart, with Vivaldi's, "The Four Seasons-Spring" being one of the most popular choices.

Many choose contemporary music for this portion of the ceremony-- songs which may hold special meaning for the bride and groom--while others opt for the more traditional classical selections without lyrics. These tend to be less obtrusive and more traditional. Other weddings have included a combination of the two styles, which is perfectly acceptable as the prelude portion of the wedding is relaxed and informal. This portion of the wedding ceremony typically lasts 30-45 minutes.

The type of prelude music chosen should fit with the musical choices made for the rest of the wedding ceremony. If, for example, the plan is for traditional, classical music selections for the wedding, you may wish to select the same musical style for the prelude. Hopefully you'll find help on this website in making your selections for this extremely important portion of the wedding.



Bagpipe music has also gained some popularity in past years, but finding this type of music can be difficult should you want it performed live. Keep in mind that whatever type of music that will be played during the processional should be relatively short in length as this portion of the wedding ceremony typically lasts two to three minutes--and should fit in with the overall wedding theme.
