I'm looking for music to be played during my wedding ceremony while the forms are being signed. Music for walking down the aisle and back up again is sorted, and in both instances is orchestral. We've been recommended to have a short piece of music (around 5 minutes) while the paperwork is signed. I figured that full blown orchestral music was a bit much for this, and rock/pop music with vocals would sound too cheesy and out of place, so I'm looking for either solo piano or chamber music that would fit the bill.
I've been listening to some pieces that I thought might be suitable, but I realise now that most of the pieces that have stood out to me over the years sound way too melancholic for a wedding.

Some pieces that I like:

Debussy - Claire de Lune (Google says this is popular at weddings, but it seems too melancholic to me)
Debussy - Reflets Dans l'eau (Possibly my favourite at the moment)
Satie - Gymnopedies (Definitely too melancholic)
Chopin - Nocturne No. 2
Grieg - Peace of the Woods

I don't have any suggestions, but congratulations man!

 No.31505

Congrats. My suggestion would be to not get too far from the tried and true unless the piece really has a lot of meaning to you.


Claire de Lune is probably good for some background music as everyone knows it. Skip the Satie. Chopin has a ton of good stuff, do you mean Op. 9 no. 2? That one is great.

Liszt's Un Sospire? There's a dope harp version, too.
