15. Music for the recessional: the wedding
Hooray! The bride and groom have kissed, the ceremony is over and it's time for the reception. Send your guests out in style with the high-spirited 'Toccata' in D major by Widor from his Organ Symphony No. 5. Another traditional favourite is Mendelssohn's 'Bridal March' from Midsummer Night's Dream - it's so well-known because it's such a great piece!
