Wedding Interlude Songs

Your wedding interlude songs will be playing during the lighting of the unity candle, the rose presentation, or any other type of special transitional period you may have during your ceremony. Interludes are typically short, so long songs are not recommended (unless you're planning to cut it short).

Traditional/Classical Interlude Songs

Arioso From Cantana BWV 156
Artist: Johann Bach
Genre: Classical

Soft melodies fit the general theme for wedding interlude songs - Arioso is a classical piece that fits this perfectly. Many classical songs can be shortened without any real notice in change from beginning to end.

Prelude No. 1 in C Major
Artist: Johann Bach
Genre: Classical

From "The Well-Tempered Clavier", Prelude No.1 is another soft, classical piece that fits well with any interlude transitional period for the ceremony. The series has many other pieces that you may be interested in - this one is just a personal favorite.

Consolation No. 3 in D-Flat Major
Artist: Franz Liszt
Genre: Classical

The Consolations are solo piano pieces by Franz Liszt. Again, these types of pieces are easily shortened in order to meet your timing needs for the interlude.

Amazing Grace (Instrumental)
Artist: Various
Genre: Christian Hymn, Classical Era

While not traditionally considered classical, Amazing Grace (in it's various varieties) is a wonderful song to compliment an interlude. We've chosen instrumental for the fact that this song's lyrics may not translate well to an interlude transition.

Ode To Joy (Violin)
Artist: Beethoven
Genre: Classical

Traditionally played on a piano, Ode To Joy sounds much softer and calming when played on strings.  Many versions of this piece has been played in modern film and television.

Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring (Solo Guitar)
Artist: Johann Bach
Genre: Classical

Even if the theme of your ceremony music is classical, Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring sounds very unique and beautiful on a guitar. To us, the guitar version feels lighter and suits the interlude better than the traditional version.

Contemporary Interlude Songs

Here We Stand
Artist: T Carter Music

Bless The Broken Road

Release: 2004

This song was originally written by Marcus Hummon, but the Rascal Flatt's version is by far the most successful and popular - it was #1 on the Billboard country music charts in 2005. As romantic country songs go, this is definitely worth consideration for your ceremony.

At Last
Artist: Beyonce
Genre: Soul Blues
Release: 2008

A very familiar song by Etta James - Beyonce adds a contemporary and refreshing twist to the classic with her cover. This song was included on the soundtrack for the film Cadillac Records which released in 2008. The lyrics and melody of this song are very appropriate for an interlude.

Love Story
