Wedding Prelude Music

Wedding prelude music is the first music your guests will here as they arrive for the ceremony. Most of the time, I find brides ask me to just pick whatever I want to play for this part before the ceremony itself. That's probably the simplest solution, and most wedding musicians have their own list of pieces they typically play for prelude music.

But I've also included some of my own favorites here plus some music that just didn't seem to fit any of the other ceremony music categories. As always, use these as suggestions and maybe they'll help you think of some other music you love and want to include here or in another part of the wedding.
