What parts of the ceremony do I need to pick out music for?
Prelude: Music to welcome guests as they are being seated before the ceremony. Prelude generally begins 15 minutes before the ceremony. The quartet is happy to select these pieces when requested.
Processional (wedding party): Music for the wedding party to enter. (slower)
Processional (bride): Music for the bride to walk down the aisle. (slower)
Special music: Music that may be during the unity candle, the giving of roses to family members or for a moment to listen and reflect. Some brides opt for no additional music during the ceremony.
Recessional: Music for the wedding party to exit. (more joyous and up-beat)
Postlude: A continuation of joyous music as guests exit or are ushered out.
