Wedding Music

music
If music is to be a part of the ceremony, as soon as the date has been set and the first conference with the pastor has been held, the couple should arrange an appointment with the musician(s) to choose selections for the service prelude, the processional, the recessional, and any music which might be used if a soloist is to participate. (The soloist, if any, should be instructed to contact the accompanist.) If desired, the musical selections may be left to the discretion of the musician(s).

It is the responsibility of the soloist to have the music well prepared and ready for rehearsal with the accompanist. The rehearsal shall be by appointment with the musician made in a timely manner prior to the wedding date.

As to the choice of music, depending on the wedding venue, there may be limitations on what is appropriate or allowed. Check to see if here are any restrictions before making final decisions concerning specific selections. The wedding reception is the ideal time for secular songs, songs from Broadway shows, contemporary songs and personal favorite songs to be presented – it is the time when all members of the wedding party can enjoy this part of the musical offering.
