How to choose wedding ceremony music: the processional

Most brides and grooms fall into two categories when it comes to choose the processional music: They either have a specific song that they would like performed, or they have no idea what to choose!  In both cases, Duo d’Amore has you covered. For the bride that knows exactly what she would like, we can most often play a great version of the song, and we may already have it in our repertoire. Otherwise we are happy to look into getting an arrangement. For the bride that has no idea, this is where our years of experience come in, and where we begin to ask questions (see the earlier post How to choose wedding ceremony music: an introduction) and the mood of the ceremony and the feel that the bride and groom would like to create. Sometimes it is helpful to choose the bridesmaids music first and find a song that either compares or contrasts with the bridal music. The processional music is where the bride really shines in the ceremony, and it is absolutely vital that the music songs fantastic, and matches the style of the couple.

It’s a little off topic for this post, but a question that I am often asked by the bride and groom is some form of: how long is the processional so we can time the walk at the rehearsal. The answer is that we take care oft this—all the bridal party and bride have to do is walk down the aisle, and we will time everything so it fits very well, and depending on the song etc., will either come to a harmonious cadence, or will discreetly fade out—again Duo d’Amore has performed for thousands of weddings, and we are happy to use our knowledge and experience to make the day (and the music) beautiful and seamless.
