Cocktail Hour

This is a time to interact and chat with friends and family, to eat lightly, and take some time for photos before the reception starts. Music for this time is usually some light and mellow jazz, and/or jazzy arrangements of other styles of music such as pop and soul. Examples might include Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud” and “Perfect,” Frank Sinatra’s “My Way” or “Fly Me To The Moon,” Stevie Wonder’s “Isn’t She Lovely,” Norah Jones’ “Don’t Know Why,” and Andrea Bocelli’s “Besame Mucho.”

Traditional Ceremony Music

Classical style in nature, traditional ceremony music provides a relaxing and familiar vibe that everyone can enjoy. Played mainly on classical guitar, songs such as Tarrega’s “Lagrima,” Wagner’s “Bridal Chorus/Here Comes The Bride,” and Mendelssohn’s “Wedding March,” are perfect as guests are being seated, as the bride enters, and as everyone exits, respectively.



Time to party and dance! The reception is the perfect time to let loose and drink and eat away all the stress and anxiety that can come with a wedding. Appropriate music for this time is upbeat music that people can dance and sing along to. Some examples might include Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk,” Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” and Avicii’s “Wake Me Up.”



  • 5/5 stars Wedding Ceremony Music: Thumbtack Verified Review

My wife and I hired James to play guitar for the processional and recessional of our wedding ceremony. We had very specific plans for the songs and arrangements we wanted to hear, and James was able to accommodate by learning and tweaking them in a very short amount of time. He communicated with us frequently throughout the process and sent us videos to make sure we were happy with the results.

On the day of the wedding, he arrived on time and with the necessary equipment, and set things up with the coordinator/officiant so that we didn't have to worry about anything ourselves. And, of course, he played the songs exactly as we'd hoped, helping to make our ceremony a perfect and memorable one. James, I'm glad you found my listing here, and thanks for everything!
