Ceremony Music Ideas

One of the biggest struggles of planning a wedding that some couples find is having to pick all the music that is played throughout the day, including the wedding ceremony music. Being DJs, we are always asked what our favorites are when a couple is simply tired of decision making. We keep an ongoing database of some of our favorites and we decided to share these ceremony music ideas with you!

Instrumentals or covers of popular songs are one way to inject your personality in your wedding day. These ceremony music ideas are instrumental/acoustic songs that can be used during your ceremony or for background music during dinner. Covers can be done on a piano, violin/strings, or even an acoustic guitar. An example is this violin cover of Bruno Mars “Marry Me” found on YouTube:

We also have a few other favorites, including this violin cover by the same artist of Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud”:

He has others that would work perfectly for any ceremony..

Check out a few other artists like The Piano Guys, Vitamin String Quartet, and Boyce Avenue.

You can also choose to hire a string quartet to play your music during the ceremony or for cocktail hour if you would prefer live music over a DJ playing tracks. Most string quartets already have covers worked into their overall playlist to make it easy for you and the song selection process.

Hopefully this helps make your music decision easier as you plan the details of the best day ever!

I’m Cali (said like Kay-Lee) and I’m in LOVE with weddings.More importantly, I’m in love with capturing all the happiness and love that are present on the wedding day. We all know the only things left after a wedding day is over are the photos + videos, plus a worn out wedding dress I love giving couples a fantastic memory of their wedding day, one that truly captures the voices, the tears, the joy, the family and the love, all while telling the story of you as a couple.
