Wedding Tip: Ceremony Processional Songs

Wedding Planning Tips by Destination Wedding Planner, Mango Muse Events

Wedding Tip from the Pros: When it comes to ceremony processional songs, less is better.

When you are planning your wedding music, one of the items you’ll have to decide on is your ceremony music.  The ceremony processional songs are the music that you, your parents and bridal party walk down the aisle to.  For most couples, you only need two processional songs, one for the bridal party and family, and one for the bride.  Don’t add songs for each bridesmaid or for each set of parents, as it will sound choppy and you won’t get to hear much of any song.  Less is better, so stick to two songs unless you have a special situation.  And the only situations where you might need a third song is if you have a large number of family members, sponsors, or other honored guests processing, or if everyone has a very long distance to walk.
