Below are some examples of the music we play while guests are arriving and being seated. There’s no need to come up with specific songs for this part of the ceremony, but if there’s a specific piece you’d like to make sure we play (or one you don’t want played), please let us know. If any of these pieces are chosen for other parts of your ceremony, we will not play them during the prelude.
