Are you having a ceremony or would you like to get married in a church or chapel. If you are getting having a ceremony you will probably get asked to pick the music for the bride walking up and aisle, married couple walking down the aisle and music for the signing of the wedding. if you are unsure ask your wedding DJ and will be able to help you out with the choices.
