THE GROUP THAT STARTED NEW YORK’S "LOVE AFFAIR" WITH CEREMONIAL TRUMPETERS

Planning Your Ceremony

Some of the brides that contact us have extensive musical backgrounds. Most, however, know very little about classical music. Please do not feel intimidated! That's what we are here for! We can make suggestions or plan the entire ceremony for you.

First of all, make use of all the resources available to you. Question friends and family who have planned a wedding before. If you are having your ceremony at a church, meet with the organist, music director or officiant at the church. They can be a wealth of knowledge.

Below you can find a layout of a traditional ceremony and some suggestions of pieces to have performed at each interval.


Prelude back to top

The prelude is the music that will be performed prior to the ceremony. This serves as entertainment for your guests as they wait for the service to begin.
