Make your special day unforgettable

The music for the ceremony, both religious and civil, has a great evocative power. It is essential to find the ideal music.

The big day has arrived. Shining in your wedding dress, you finally make your entrance. Step by step, you advance with your elegant shoes towards your soul mate who awaits you at the altar, doing everything possible to hold back the tears.

To increase the emotionality of the moment: the background music. Here are some songs suitable to accompany you in one of the most exciting moments of your life, that of the “I do“.

Timeless Classics

There are some timeless songs, those that always make us think of altars full of flowers and lace wedding gowns. These songs are usually written by great classical music composers whose songs have always been associated with marriage, and have in fact often been used as soundtracks for famous films. These songs are ideal pieces for any moment of the ceremony, especially for the bride's entrance, the exchange of rings, the moment of communion and the exit of the newlyweds. Here are the most highly requested songs:

  • Wedding March (Lohengrin) – Richard Wagner
  • Wedding March – Felix Mendelssohn
  • Canon in D – Johann Pachelbel
  • Hallelujah – Leonard Cohen
  • Air on the G string – Johann Sebastian Bach
  • Panis Angelicus, Op.12 – César Franck
  • Ave Maria – Franz Schubert
  • Alleluia, Z. S14 – Henry Purcell
  • Fratello Sole, Sorella Luna – Riz Ortolani
  • Laudate Dominum – Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
  • Lascia ch’io pianga – George Frideric Handel
  • Adagio in G Minor - Tommasi Albinoni
  • Primavera - Antonio Vivaldi
  • Méditation de Thaïs - Jules Massenet

Which ensemble to choose

With or without a singer, there are many ensemble possibilities, and generally the most popular instruments are the violin, the flute, the piano or the harp, but also the string trio or quartet are suitable for the occasion. This choice will make the ceremony even more sumptuous and unforgettable. While all songs can be arranged for different ensembles, there are some that we believe are particularly effective:

  • Arioso, Adagio in G for 4 Cellos, BWV 156 – Johann Sebastian Bach
  • Spring - Antonio Vivaldi
  • Canon in D – Johann Pachelbel
  • Méditation de Thaïs – Jules Massenet
  • Adagio in G Minor – Tomaso Albinoni
  • Ode to Joy – Ludwig Van Beethoven

Other alternatives

An original alternative is Gospel, usually a religious genre, born in African American churches in the eighteenth century and whose engaging rhythm can give a sparkling and cheerful touch to your wedding. If you plan to have a more gospel repertoire, we can advise you on the songs (some of which you will be familiar with thanks to the film "Sister Act"). We challenge you not to move your bouquet to the rhythm of the music!

Here is a short list:

  • Oh Happy Day – The Edwin Haekins Singers
  • I Will Follow Him –Little Peggy March
  • When God Made You – Daywind
  • Hail, Holy Queen – New Sisters Gospel Choir
  • Joyful Joyful – ACM Gospel Choir
  • My life, my love, my all – The Gospel House

The selection of the music for the ceremony is not always a given, and requires the right attention. It is important that the pieces chosen have an emotional value for the occasion and that they adapt to any selected readings. Just like all the other details, from the decorating of the location to the guest list, and then to the flowers in the church, the centerpieces and the bride's bouquet, the music must also meet your tastes.

The added value of DYME, beyond the high level of professionalism, is the total customization and the real musical advice offered to wedding planners and future spouses in creating the perfect soundtrack for their most important day.
