What can/do you do at a wedding?
following is a guide, based on a typical church wedding, to some of the places
where piping can set the tone for your day. Not all weddings incorporate
these elements. I've done
as much as everything you see here and as little as only one item.
Regardless of my involvement, I always try to attend the rehearsal. This
helps me to understand the overall flow and to be sure that I have my cues and
my needs are met.
all of this may be done with appropriate planning.
Prelude - Up to 15-20 minutes prior to the processional.
Seating of Mothers/Lighting of Candles
Entrance of Clergy and Groomsmen and Ring Bearers
Entrance of Bridesmaids and Flower Girls
or Lighting of Unity Candle
Recessional for Newlyweds, Wedding Party and Clergy
Private Time (A wonderful tradition in some cultures to allow the newlyweds
a few minutes to celebrate the moment before greeting the guests.)
Postlude - as guests are released sometimes combined with Receiving Line
Introduction at the Bride and Groom at the Reception
