Wedding Ceremony Music - Guitarist

Although I’ve divided the following list of wedding songs not only by the part of the ceremony to which they are most appropriate, but by style (hymns, classical, modern) as well, many wedding ceremony music selections are interchangeable. For example, “The Lord’s Prayer,” while under “Prelude” is a wonderful “Ceremony” choice.

Pick up a wedding cd or two so you can familiarize yourself with some of the different selections available. A couple good ones are “The Wedding Album – Anthony Newman, Organ” and “Wedding Day – The Complete Guide To Wedding Music.” You can also check out your local library’s music section, or go to YouTube and search on “Wedding Ceremony Music”.
