Special Request Wedding Songs

I like learning new songs. Many brides request special songs for their ceremony and I’m always happy to accommodate.

That said, I have a pretty large repertoire already, with songs that are tested and true. You can read my most popularly played wedding songs here: Music Songlist. Its a good place to start from if you’re not sure what kind of music you’d like to have at your wedding.


In general, I would say that a wedding ceremony has three main songs, in addition to prelude and postlude music. There are some variations:

– Processional
– Interlude (optional)
– Recessional

– Processional
– Bridal Entrance
– Interlude (optional)
– Recessional

…and for the very simple event:
– Processional
– Recessional

If a couple has special requests, I do my best to make that happen. Here’s an example of some songs I’ve learned particular situations, like weddings and holiday parties:

A Thousand Years – Christina Perri
Falling Slowly – from the movie, Once (Glen Hansard)
Flower Duet – Leo Delibes
Hotel California – The Eagles
In My Life – The Beatles
Lovesong – The Cure
No Surprises – Radiohead
Skinny Love – Bon Iver
Sweet Child O’Mine – Guns N’Roses
Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This) – Annie Lennox
Take On Me – Aha
Witchy Woman – The Eagles
When You Wish Upon A Star – Disney
