Traditional Ceremony Music Suggestions

Prelude
"Spring" by Vivaldi (from "The Four Seasons")

Bridesmaid/Mother's Processional
"Canon In D" (Pachelbel)

Bride's Processional
"Bridal Chorus" (from Lohengrin by Wagner)

Recessional
"Wedding March" (Mendellson)

The selections throughout the course of the ceremony *should* build-up in "presence"
    :: Soft, tranquil for moms,
    :: Up a tiny bit of tempo for the bridesmaids
    :: Substantially larger for the bride
    :: "Your preference" for the unity activity (if called for)
    :: And very strong for the recessional.
