Processional Music for a Wedding Ceremony

The processional is the segment of a marriage ceremony just after the bride and her bridal party arrive at the ceremony, and begin their 'walk down the aisle'.

As the guests stand to welcome the bride to her marriage ceremony, grand music should be played to signify the event. Often music in this section is performed 'live', however it also may be provided on CD, SD, USB or iPod.
