What would be more perfect for a wedding than a piece that has “Wedding March” in the title?  Chances are that you have heard this before, but if you’re not sure, go ahead and give it a listen:

Felix Mendelssohn was born in 1809 and grew up in Berlin, Germany.  It wasn’t long until his musical talents were uncovered and he was child prodigy, making his musical debut by age 9.  Mendelssohn was not only a composer, but also a musician, with his first instrument as the piano, and a conductor, so his knowledge of instruments and performance of music was extensive.

Wedding March from a Midsummer Night’s Dream is one of Mendelssohn’s best known works, produced in 1826. It is reminiscent of joyfulness of Shakespeare’s comedies because of the “doubled” wedding ceremony that concludes the play.

You don’t need to share your wedding with another couple to have this piece be your ceremony statement!  It makes the perfect wedding song (it’s all in the title), especially the boldness that sets the tone for the newly married bride and groom to walk back down the aisle together for the recessional music.
