Top Ten Wedding Tunes

Glenda Clwyd

As the title suggests, this collection has a bunch of great wedding favorites. From “Canon in D” to Purcell’s “Trumpet Tune,” and “Flower Duet,” these pieces are versatile for all parts of a wedding ceremony. I really enjoy the arrangement of Mendelssohn’s “Wedding March” recessional in this collection.

Twilight

Meg Robinson

This peppy solo makes a great alternative to traditional recessionals or a great postlude piece—it’s upbeat and fun as guests move along to cocktail hour.

A Thousand Years

Michelle Whitson Stone

Only requested about EVERY OTHER WEDDING, if you don’t have this in your gig book, you’ll want to add it now! It’s one of my top-requested songs for the bridal party to come down the aisle. This arrangement falls nicely in your hands.

Distant Valley

Kirsten Agresta Copely

Short and sweet, this little tune works really well for wedding ceremonies! It’s a great option for a bride who wants something different, and it also makes a great short solo when you’re asked to play an interlude or during a special part of the ceremony like lighting of the unity candle.

At The River

Sunita Staneslow

Four beautifully arranged hymns come in this collection. I only knew two of the hymns by melody, but the two I didn’t are absolutely gorgeous and perfect for wedding preludes or a hymn prayer time. The popular “When Peace Like a River” also known as “It Is Well With My Soul” is a wedding favorite, too.

Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring

Meinir Heulyn

This is my favorite arrangement of this wedding classic by Bach! I use it most often for bridal parties or mothers coming down the aisle.

Everywhere

Nadia Birkenstock

This meditative piece is so pretty! It would make a great entrance piece for mothers and grandmothers, or make a nice addition to prelude repertoire.

Alla Hornpipe

Stephanie Bennett

Somehow I was just recently requested this classic for the first time. I wish I had had this arrangement at the time! This is from Handel’s famous Water Music and is a great recessional with the “wow” factor post kiss!

Gentle Spirit

Barbara Semmann

This collection of seven solos is perfect for prelude music! Each piece is sweet and ethereal, yet interesting in melody and harmony.

Perfect

Michelle Whitson Stone

One of the newest songs brides are requesting—Ed Sheeran seems to be the king of love songs these days. I’ve used this song for brides, bridal parties, and prelude music. It’s a great investment for your wedding gig book!

Arrival of the Queen of Sheeba

Katherine Thomas

Another recessional option! I just recently was asked to play this one for the first time and was so glad to come across this version. It is a bit long, but that is great for large wedding parties. Thomas has versions for both lever or pedal harp.
