Choosing the right ceremony wedding songs can make for a very special moment during the ceremony.
Music is an important part of most wedding ceremonies. It lifts the spirit and can bring people together, often times more than words do.
Music is traditionally played before the Processional, during the Processional and the Recessional, and after the ceremony.
However, most officiants are willing to incorporate music at other points during the ceremony. This may include after a reading or during the lighting of a unity candle.
To make their wedding even more memorable, the bride and groom may choose a special song to be sung during the ceremony.
Some couples choose a hymn which can be sung by a soloist or the choir and often, they will encourage their guests to join in. This gives a feeling of unity for the family and friends.
Any of the above songs can be played during the lighting of the unity candle. Or a favorite song that has special meaning to the couple can be played.
