This season’s wedding couples are currently nailing down their wedding music choices – with some interesting picks! It’s no surprise that the Mendelssohn Wedding March takes first place as a ceremony music choice, in my experience so far. And Pachelbel’s Canon in D is coming out once again as the top processional choice, and second ceremony music choice overall. But what surprised me is the current third place choice.

Christina Perri’s “A Thousand Years” seems to be taking a number 3 position in the list of top ceremony music choices for couples I’ll be working with in 2015! In one case, it will serve as processional for the wedding party, in another case as processional for the bride, and in yet another as recessional.

“How can I love when I’m afraid to fall?
But watching you stand alone,
All of my doubt suddenly goes away somehow.
And all along I believed I would find you.
Time has brought your heart to me.
I have loved you for a thousand years.
I’ll love you for a thousand more.”

The final choices are still being decided for many couples – stay tuned for updates on this season’s couples’ choices in ceremony music!
