Music Selection

Ceremony and Reception Music
Most couples have some music selections in mind, but are unsure
of just what parts of their special day call for specific music choices.
The list below will prepare you for the song selections
your DJ or band will request from you as a couple.

Prelude: played before the ceremony begins

Processional: played while parents (and sometimes grandparents) and wedding party walk down the aisle

Bride Entrance: played only for the bride

Interlude: played during a special part of the ceremony or between to mainly fill silences (ex. lighting of the unity candles, crown ceremony, sand ceremony…etc.)

Recessional: played during the exit of the parents, wedding party, and bride & groom

Postlude: played as guests exit the ceremony location


Introduction Music: played while the parents (and sometimes grandparents), wedding party, and bride & groom enter the reception (looping song or separately chosen song)

First Dance: played while bride & groom only dance

Mother & Son Dance: played while mother of the groom and the groom only dance

Father & Daughter Dance: played while father of the bride and bride only dance

Wedding Party: played while the bride & groom, wedding party, and any other selection of groups of people dance

Bridal/Money/Apron Dance: played while the bride & groom dance with individuals or groups of guests…guests in turn give money and receive a shot, cookie, or other token of appreciation

Bouquet Toss/Garter Toss: played while the garter is being taken off and being tossed to single men attendants along with when the bouquet is being tossed to single lady attendants (typically two different songs)

Cake Cutting: played while the bride & groom cut the cake

Last Dance: played as the last song of the wedding night
