Playlists for the Ceremony

 

The other day I was looking at a menu in a Chinese take-away and I noticed that, they had been very clever, in that they had shown a series of set menus. This idea obviously helps people make up their minds and makes things simpler for those of us that are not familiar with Chinese food. I then thought that it would be a great idea to apply this principle to the choice of music in a wedding ceremony. So what follows is a series of set playlists (not menus) for civil ceremonies:

 

Set Playlist No1 for two people:

Entrance: Wagner's "Bridal Chorus" ("Here Comes The Bride") Play

Signing: Debussy's "Clair De Lune" Play

Recession: Mendelssohn's "Wedding March" Play

 

Set Playlist No2 (Frank Sinatra Theme) for two people:

Entrance: "Strangers In The Night"

Signing: "Night and Day"

Recession: "Come Fly With Me"

 

Set Playlist No3 for two people:

Entrance: Pachelbels "Canon In D " Play

Signing: Pachelbels "Canon In D"

Recession: "Arrival Of The queen Of Sheba"

 

Set Playlist No4 for two people:

Entrance: Eric Satie's "Gymnopedie No 1" Play

Signing: Eric Satie's "Gymnopedie No 1" Play and "Gymnopedie No 2" Play

Recession: Eric Satie's "Gymnopedie No 3" Play

 

Set Playlist No5 for two people:

Entrance: Albeniz's "Tango in D" Play

Signing: Albeniz's "Tango in D" Play and Rachmaninov's "18th Variation on a Theme of Paganini" Play

Recession: Albeniz's "Cadiz" Play
