Bridal Chorus Variations – We’ve jumped into the top 7 in google searches for “bridal chorus”, the traditional bridal processional that has been the favorite of many for the last 100+ years. We have great a variety on this album – 20+ different options for a wedding day walk down the aisle, including a couple with pipe organ, two orchestral options, 3 that feature trumpet & orchestra, a couple more featuring romantic string quartet, some traditional piano renditions, 3 or 4 gentle and reflective piano arrangements in varying lengths to fit your ceremony, and couple more piano interpretations that are not quite as stately as the traditional, but not as relaxed as the very reflective piano options. We also carry what might be the shortest version you can find, clocking in at about :24 (the file says :29 because we left some quiet space at the end of the track). Lace up the Nikes – you better be quick!
Storybook Love, the theme from the movie Princess Bride, has received the greatest number of plays to date. We have a “cut to the chase” version for use as a bridal processional that starts immediately with the love theme; it’s about 2 minutes long, whereas the wedding processional version is a bit more than 3 minutes.
Processionals for Brides and Bridesmaids is developing into a nicely ranked page with Google, partly due to some of the songs that get quite a bit of attention: Bless The Broken Road, I Was Glad When They Said Unto Me, the majestic and enthralling bridal processional that more than a billion people heard April 29th, 2011 as part of the royal wedding ceremony music of Kate Middleton and Prince William, the Bridal Chorus played on pipe organ, and Jesu Joy of Man’s Desiring, the “made for weddings” song from arguably history’s finest composer, J.S. Bach.
Classic Love Songs, most familiar to us all, and featuring many solo piano songs.
Kate and William’s Royal Wedding Ceremony Music, published the day after the royal wedding, and featuring a handful of the songs that filled the air in the glorious Westminster Cathedral, notably Kate’s bridal processional, offered in a shorter version I Was Glad When They Said Unto Me and a longer one as well. Interestingly, the fanfare to announce the Arrival of the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh has attracted some attention, though it is less than a half minute in length.
Prediction: Though it is not one of the top performing pages on our site (it was just released and we’re still working out a couple of snags), I predict within 6 months this may be our most visited page: Wedding Music Samples. Or there’s a version on our BandCamp Music page: Wedding Music Samples. We have reason to believe this will become an extremely useful and popular resource for soon to be married couples, wedding chapels, and wedding planners. Okay, it’s not the wedding chapels and wedding planners that are getting married, for those of you who question my grammar or sentence structure….
Other songs with a high number of plays include I Was Glad When They Said Unto Me, Kate’s processional, Bless The Broken Road, Pachelbel’s Canon, Trumpet Voluntary, Meditation From Thais, Jesu Joy Of Man’s Desiring, From This Moment, and You And Me, the song originally recorded by Lifehouse, here a romantic piano solo.
As we continue to offer new music, there are many faster tempo wedding songs, and some more contemporary ones as well that you’ll find: All You Need Is Love, Happy Together, When I’m 64, Lucky (originally by Jason Mraz), Only Hope, as recorded by Mandy Moore, Iris (made famous by the Goo Goo Dolls) and more.
