Wedding Ceremony Music Inspiration

Many of the most memorable wedding moments are set to music. Set the tone for your wedding with a sentimental processional bridal song. From the traditional ‘Canon in D’ to the more recent favorites such as Ed Sheeran’s ‘Perfect’, choosing your wedding ceremony songs that resonate with you & your partner is key.  Although it’s sometimes an overlooked detail during planning, imagine the relaxing task of picking your wedding music! These songs are great for the processional which can include seating of family, bridal party entrance and, my favorite, the bridal processional.
