    Specifically looking for processional / bridal entrance music. A couple questions:

    1) Anyone ever perform at weddings? If so, what songs or classical music pieces?
    2) What other songs would make good classy music?

    Here's what I've done over the years.

    Piano:
    Wagner – Bridal Chorus - (Not particularly fond of this; overdone, unoriginal)
    Mendelssohn – Wedding March
    UNV – You are my sunshine
    UNV – I am so in love with you
    Santa Esmerelda – You’re My Everything
    Martin Niavera – You are my song

    Guitar:
    Israel Kamakawiwo'ole - Somewhere over the rainbow (ukulele style)
    Johnny Cash – I walk the line
    Beatles – In my life

    I like to have a few songs on hand just in case. Anything good ones I should brush up on?

    The melody and singing are unbeatable. Having a man-woman duet to mirror the married couple is a nice touch as well.

    The only negative is that "time to say goodbye" doesn't fit in a wedding. The funny thing is that the Italian lyrics don't have anything to do with saying goodbye or farewells or anything. They're actually really sweet and perfect for a wedding.

    Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring is great filler music when people are finding their seats if you are playing classical

    Can’t Help Falling in Love With You

    Forever and Ever Amen

    I went to a wedding that had a lady sing Led Zepplin's Thank You A cappella. That was really nice.

    We had some of the more romantic Joe Satriani songs playing. DJ came to me later and payed respects because usually he has to play horrible russian pop.

    Rain Song would be pretty awesome for a wedding. I've actually thought of this before.
