    Default Choral wedding music help please!

    Hi all
    I've joined the forum with a specific question in mind. We're getting married later this year and need ideas for music for the ceremony. In particular we're struggling with a piece for the bride's processional. The church we're getting married in is pretty large and so will take a grand piece. We really like I Was Glad but it's quite long and ideally we need a piece that is about 2 minutes long so we're not left stood at the end of the aisle for three minutes! Any thoughts you have on uplifting, short-ish choral pieces would be very much apprecaited.
    Thanks!

    The choral version of Jesu, Joy of Mans' Desiring would fit nicely. It is uplifting and stately.

    [thread moved to choral/voice forum)

    My parents had this played at their wedding, it's a goody.

    Yes, Bach's Jesu is perfect, it came to my mind before I opened this page (although I personally don't like it, but that's irrelevant).

    Another obvious one is Wagner's Bridal Chorus from Lohengrin...

    I think, I think I will submit this for entry in to the next edition of Ripley's Believe It or Not.
