Music for the Day

Even with large, elaborate weddings, music selection for the ceremony may be a marginalied part of the wedding planning.  Understandably some couples, who may have little in the way of formal music training, are intimidated in selecting the processional and recessional music, which is often classical in nature.  Authors Barbara Rothstein and Gloria Slerov have compiled The Complete Wedding Music Guide and Planner, with many ideas and suggestions for classical and contemporary music for the wedding.  Suggestions for the Prelude and Processional are included below.
