ON THE WEDDING DAY
It is recommended that on your wedding day, the music begin fifteen minutes before the ceremony starts as guests arrive and are seated. The chosen group will then continue to play until it has received a signal that the bridal party has arrived.
At this point the music selected by the couple is played, beginning with the processional. The two other standard moments where music is required are signing the register and the recessional. There is no limit to the number of additional pieces you can have in your ceremony.
Many couples have music for communion, after a reading, preparation of the bread and wine, gift offerings etc… You are encouraged to customize your ceremony as you wish.
After choosing the type and size of group, the next step is to make your selection of music for the ceremony from pieces 1 to 31. They are arranged in random order. Each one is presented in a short version to give you an overall idea of the 31 choices available. For Jewish ceremonies, all of the traditional songs are available as well as everything from “Fiddler.” All of the wedding music is performed by the Festival String Quartet. The selections also apply to most of the other combinations.
