Prelude

Soft background music performed while guests are being seated. If you do not have particular requests for this music, select a category of harp music you would like performed (for example, light classical music or popular love songs).


Processional

Begins when the officiant and the groom approach the altar. The bridesmaids (along with the groomsmen who may join them) continue to walk to this selection. Traditionally, this is a majestic piece played at a pace that is easy to walk to. For non-traditional weddings or smaller wedding parties, this selection need not have a majestic sound, but should retain an easy walking tempo. This piece ends when the entire wedding party reaches the altar.


Bride's Entrance

Traditionally, the bride enters to fanfare music that announces her arrival (most often, Here Comes the Bride). Again, for non-traditional weddings or small weddings, other music may be chosen to suit the bride's taste, as long as it sounds good played at an easy walking pace. This piece ends when the bride reaches the altar. When there are no other bridesmaids, other than the maid or matron of honor, the bride sometimes elects to enter to the same piece of music as the maid or matron of honor.


Recessional

A triumphant, almost quickly paced piece played as the newlyweds walk up the aisle as husband and wife, followed by the wedding party.


Wedding Suggestions

Below is a list of commonly requested selections to provide assistance in planning your own wedding program. Feel free to inquire about your favorite selections... the only limiting factor being the availability of sheet music and playability on the harp.
