Traditional Wedding Music

Traditional Wedding Music

This is my go-to list for traditional wedding music. When the couple asks for typical or classic wedding music but has no particular requests, I draw from the following list and make sure that it fits the timing of the ceremony. I may sometimes work in contemporary wedding music if I need additional last-minute material.

This list comes from The Perfect Wedding Songbook, and the songs should be easy to find online. (One of my future projects is to record my versions of each of these, which I’ll be sure to link to here as soon as it’s ready.)

As always, feel free to contact me with any questions, and best of luck with your ceremony and wedding day!
