Seating of Mothers/Grandmothers (if applicable): *1 song
Wedding Party: *1 song
*Please note: There can be exceptions to the above. If the Seating of Mothers/Grandmothers is very short, then it can work much better to have 1 song total for that + the Wedding Party. On that same point, if it’s a very long wedding party with a long entrance ramp/path, then having more than one song can make sense. In this case, I’d seamlessly transition between the two songs so that there’s not a long pause/gap in the music. The quantity of people in the Seating of Mothers/Grandmothers + the Wedding Party, along with the length of the walk from to the ceremony site can affect the timing. These are the types of musical details that we work out in our correspondence while planning the music. I guarantee that it will be worked out in a way that will flow beautifully :)
Main Entrance: 1 song. This is the one magical piece of to enter to after the wedding party. I always encourage this to be the song you are the most passionate about. Whether it’s contemporary, traditional, special request – definitely don’t “settle” on this song! Of course, I’m here any time you’d like my input or would like a demo of a special request :)
Unity Ceremony (Sand, Wine, Candle, Box, Tree, etc. If applicable): 1 song.
This is a very visual part of the wedding that is “colored” beautifully with music.
Recessional: 1 song, though I do recommend picking 2 songs. Pick 1 song picked for the initial exit, then a backup song (a “Post-Recessional” song) picked for when/if guests are still leaving the ceremony & making their way to the cocktail hour.
