The other day I was looking
at a menu in a Chinese take-away and I noticed that, they had been
very clever, in that they had shown a series of set menus. This
idea obviously helps people make up their minds and makes things
simpler for those of us that are not familiar with Chinese food.
I then thought that it would be a great idea to apply this principle
to the choice of music in a wedding ceremony. So what follows is
a series of set playlists (not menus) for civil ceremonies:
Set Playlist No1 for
Entrance: Wagner's "Bridal
Chorus" ("Here Comes The Bride")
Signing: Debussy's "Clair
Recession: Mendelssohn's "Wedding
Set Playlist No2 (Frank
Sinatra Theme) for two people:
Entrance: "Strangers In
Signing: "Night and Day"
Recession: "Come Fly With
Set Playlist No3 for
Entrance: Pachelbels "Canon
In D "
Signing: Pachelbels "Canon
Recession: "Arrival Of
The queen Of Sheba"
Set Playlist No4 for
Entrance: Eric Satie's "Gymnopedie
