Stay With You by John Legend

You can trust John Legend to deliver the ideal wedding anthem. This song reflects on couples being together and staying through difficulties. “There will be heartaches and pains,” Legend sings. “But through it all, we will remain.”

This Is Love by Kelly Rowland

This sweet song describes what it’s like to be in love in a very poetic way. When Kelly Rowland sang out, “Can you describe the moment when two people fall in love?” It will help convey to your guests what you feel towards your significant other.

Marry Me by Jason Derulo

Weddings aren’t all tears and “I’ll Miss Yous.” This fun, upbeat song by Jason Derulo reminds everyone to celebrate a new, happy life for the couple. “Wake up every morning with you in my bed… That’s precisely what I plan to do.”

Angel of Mine by Monica

When I first saw you, I already knew.” How do you know he’s the one? Let this song do the talking for you. If this song reached Number 1 in the US Billboard Hot 100, it will also touch the hearts of your guests.

By Your Side by Sade

The song brings a happy and smooth beat that can curb the awkwardness between guests. Not to mention the poignant meaning behind the song as it talks about fighting for love through rough times.

Rest Of My Life by Bruno Mars

As I stand here before my woman.” Bruno Mars shows what loving forever is like between married couples. The song is a reminder and a promise to love someone for the rest of their lives.

All My Life by K-Ci & JoJo

This is one of the best romantic hits from the 90s you can request from your wedding DJ. Playing this song on the background lets you belt out on thanking God to have found the one you love.

Nowadays, prelude music doesn’t have to be overly romantic or old fashioned sentimental love songs. Couples can put their spin on it, makings sure it reflect their personality and story. R&B tunes can help them achieve just that.

7 Best Classical Brides Entrance Songs

7 Best Classical Brides Entrance Songs 

Are you planning on having your wedding in a church? If this is so, you’ll have certain limitations on what you can play for your wedding. Ask your wedding DJ to play it safe, without going too plain with some good ole’ classical pieces.

Classical music provides failsafe options for a traditional wedding. But it doesn’t have to be boring. If you don’t know how to choose, let this list of classical wedding processional songs inspire you.

Bridal Chorus by Wagner

The classic, “Here Comes the Bride” march, gives you that regal feeling of when God unites your union. It might be a popular piece of music, but given that there are a variety of versions available, you can choose one that suits your preferences the best.

Canon in D by Pachelbel

Canon is the most popular bridal entrance in weddings! This soft tune is a favorite classical melody is almost a must for ceremonies. Most couples change this piece to different versions to make it more refreshing. For instance, the rock guitar Canon in D is a crowd pleaser just as much as the original.

Midsummer Night’s Dream, Op. 61: IX. Wedding March by Mendelssohn

The trumpet sounds and blasts from violins in the intro will certainly add a grand statement to your entrance. Mendelssohn has created a rather heavenly piece of music that will surely place all the focus on the bride and the ceremony itself.

Ave Maria by Bach

Bach’s rendition of Ave Maria has a soft and pure tune perfect for bridal marches. If you can find an opera or wedding singer who can sing it for you, you’ll understand why it’s a top pick for an entrance.

The Marriage of Figaro, K. 492: Act I. Overture

If you want a more uplifting tune for your entrance, this piece would be ideal for a joyous celebration. It can set the right mood for everyone waiting for your arrival.

Clair de Lune by Claude Debussy

If you want something more subtle, but no less dreamy, then this is the song for you. It gives a light, almost floaty feeling to the ceremony. Adding a romantic touch to everything. Also, you can hear this classical track on slow dances between children and their parents.

Music for the Royal Fireworks by Handel

If you want a regal and grand entrance, Handel’s Royal Fireworks is a good choice to celebrate such a happy occasion. Or, you can use this piece for your recessional as well.

Do you want to stay conventional yet memorable with your choice of music? This classical playlist is what you can suggest to your wedding DJ.

Jazz Wedding Prelude Songs

Jazz Wedding Prelude Songs

The Wedding Ceremony Prelude marks the guest’s arrival to the wedding location. It typically starts around half an hour to an hour before the start of the wedding ceremony itself.

The length of the prelude is determined by the number of guests so it’s best that you’re prepared well. The wedding starts when all the important guests have arrived.

The prelude is also the best time to set the mood for the entire event, while the guests wait for the formal ceremonies of the wedding to commence. Modern wedding coordinators tend to set a cheerful atmosphere during this period, but some people prefer a subdued tone which then creates an intimate, and more solemn mood for the wedding itself. Classical music brings with it a sense of grandness, but at the same time, it also lends a sense of sacredness– telling us that an important ceremony is happening.

One of the more popular music genres to play during the prelude is jazz. It sets a light mood without being overpowering. When you play subtly upbeat music, guests tend to relax, laugh, and smile more.

The songs and its singers also add to the mood. When people hear familiar voices and tunes, they tend to sing along and this makes the waiting time less tedious

Michael Buble’s rendition of Crazy Little Called Love is clear proof that this crooner can cover any song and make it truly his own. This song has been covered by many other greats, such as Elvis Presley and Queen, but Michael’s unique and soothing voice has managed to make it new again. The lyrics of the song talks about the ups and downs of love, quite perfect for a wedding.

Darling Je Vous Aime Beaucoup by Nat King Cole is another jazz favorite during wedding preludes. Who wouldn’t love Nat King Cole’s voice? The song may contain French words but it plainly tells about a man pledging his love to her woman through the words ‘I love you, yes I do.’

Kenny G is one of those artists who has managed to show the world that lyrics is not really a requirement for music to be fully enjoyed. With the power of his clarinet, he wooed people around the globe and gained worldwide recognition. One of his most recognizable piece of work and most heard during weddings is Forever in Love. This piece is light and can set the mood just right during the prelude.

Another jazz master, Louis Armstrong, left us with so many great songs. Honeysuckle Rose is a song about how sweet love can be. It’s a less formal approach by comparing kisses to honey and the words work well together.

Michael Buble gets another number in this playlist with his version of the classic How Sweet It Is. This song is another staple during weddings and one that it sure to get the guests singing along because of the light, familiar lyrics.

If you want to inject some jazz music into your prelude song playlist, you can’t go wrong with these five pieces.
