Prelude - The Prelude plays while guests are arriving. It's often played for 30-45 minutes, so a long prelude may require more than one song.

Processional - The processional is played while the wedding party and important guests are seated. Many change to a new song for the "grand entrance" of the bride, usually Wagner's "Bridal Chorus" (Here Comes the Bride).

Interlude - An interlude is any song played in the middle of the ceremony. It is often played during candle-lighting, a sand ceremony, or other activity.

Recessional - The recessional is played immediately after the officiant pronounces the couple husband and wife. The traditional song choice is "Marcha Nupcial" (or "Wedding March") by Mendelssohn.

PostludeThe postlude immediately follows the recessional. You may want to transition to another song after the initial postlude.
