The wedding date is set, the cake is ordered, the dress is being altered (again)… you have everything you need except — music! Many brides and grooms make music selection one of the last items on the to-do list and then find themselves struggling to find just the right tunes to set the stage for the ceremony or reception.

“Brides kept asking us to provide suggestions for their wedding music,” say brothers Ryan and Tim O’Neill, nationally known as the best-selling piano-playing duo, The O’Neill Brothers. “After playing more than 200 weddings we decided to record a CD that would give brides their answers.”

Whether you need tunes for a traditional wedding or a somewhat more Bohemian bash, here The O’Neill Brothers offer their top ten musical suggestions to make your soiree sensational:

  1. Air from “Water Music” – George Frideric Handel
  2. Canon in D – Johann Pachelbel
  3. The Wedding Song (There is Love) – Noel Paul Stookey
  4. Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring – J.S. Bach
  5. Falling in Love – Tim and Ryan O’Neill
  6. The Way You Look Tonight – Jerome Kern
  7. Ave Maria – Franz Peter Schubert
  8. From This Moment On – Shania Twain
  9. Ode to Joy – Ludwig van Beethoven
  10. I Will Be Here – Steven Curtis Chapman

“Your wedding day is one of the most special days in your life,” say The O’Neill
