Adult Contemporary Wedding Processional Songs

Welcome to Adult Contemporary Wedding Processional Songs this week’s Wedding Ceremony Music Series feature article. A weekly series where we showcase a different genre of music for the various parts of an American Wedding ceremony. Adult Contemporary wedding processional songs consists of songs that do not really fit into one category or the other. I suggest you look at other genres such as alternative genre, pop genre as well as rock, R & B and traditional genres of songs.

The leading artist on this list is Celine Dion. Her songs transcend multiple genres of music. Her powerful vocals and melodies take you on an emotional journey.

You were my strength when I was weak 
You were my voice when I couldn’t speak
You were my eyes when I couldn’t see
You saw the best there was in me

From ‘Because You Loved Me’ by Celine Dion

tells everyone in your processional how much they mean to you.

Suddenly before my eyes
Hues of indigo arise
With them how my spirit sighs
Paint the sky with stars

From Paint the Sky With Stars by Enya

Somewhere Over the Rainbow the rendition by Joe Satriani is an electric guitar instrumental you may want to consider using for your adult contemporary wedding processional song.

Just remember in the winter

Far beneath the bitter snows

Lies the seed that with the sun’s love

In the spring becomes the rose.

The Rose Bette Midler

We’re heading for something
Somewhere I’ve never been
Sometimes I am frightened
But I’m ready to learn
(‘Bout) Of the power of love

The Power of Love by Celine Dion

Two lights that shine as one

Morning glory and midnight sun

Time we’ve learned to sail above

Time won’t chane the meaning of one love

Ageless and ever evergreen

Evergreen by Barbara Streisand

Remember when choosing songs for your wedding processional, you have options with songs that on the whole may not be appropriate, but may have a lyrical section that is long enough for you to use. Factors to consider are how many are in the wedding processional and how far they will have to walk.

Wedding Tip about Receptions from a Boston Professional Wedding DJ


Just a quick tip from DJ Jack Barros a Boston Professional Wedding DJ! About where to set your wedding tables to create the perfect mood at your reception.

A recent past weekend I had the pleasure of playing music for Heather & James Macomber at Chamberlain Pavillion in Berkely, MA. Upon arriving at the venue I checked in with owner Jacqui Chamberlain to review the setup of the room and itinerary.

We walked into the Pavillion and her staff had started setting up the tables like in table setting 1 below. I was impressed that she immediatley instructed her staff to change the room to one similiar to Table setting number 2 below.

There are a few good reasons as to why she changed the layout of the room. A practical reason is that it is more efficient for guests and staff alike. More importantly wedding receptions are family reunions and your guests want to be able to talk. The close proximity of the tables allows for a more intimate setting.

One more good reason is that if you have a large dance floor in relation to the amount of people there is a loss of energy in the room. Most of us like to have other people around us when we dance and if there is to much distance we start to feel uncomfortable.

Tip of the day from DJ Jack Barros a BostonProfessional Wedding DJ, ladies is to have your wedding reception intimate and comfortable for your guests to be able to relax and have a good time by having the right table setup.
