Popular Wedding Music
Intermediate (upper) to Advanced Piano Solo

Reeeely nice arrangements by Dan Coates. Even the Wagner "Bridal Chorus" (here comes the bride) is thought through in terms of how a very good pianist would play the first part subdued, and then big and full for the bride.
Highest recommendation for this collection. Great arrangements, not overly difficult for a good pianist to learn, and most importantly
-- the arrangements sound full and professional.

Favorite Jazz For Piano Solo
Int. / Adv. Piano Solo

This is an outstanding collection for the more accomplished pianist. Pretty much a "greatest hits" collection, and all arrangements by Tom Roed are excellent.

Jim Brickman: Best New Wedding Classics
Int. / Adv. Piano Solo

Technically, this is a piano/vocal collection, as songs with lyrics are presented in traditional format. But, all songs have melody in piano part, and the arrangements are very good. All arrangements are around the intermediate to upper intermediate level. No great technique required, but one should be familiar with the songs to save time trying to figure out the rhythms.

Dan Coates Complete Advanced Piano Solos

Very large collection
Contains many of Dan Coates arrangements found in previous collections, as well as some new titles. Many of these arrangements of more recent hits are the best-sounding in print.
Very highly recommended for the upper intermediate to advanced player.

Planning the Music For Your Wedding
Intermediate to Lower Advanced Piano Solo
Book and CD


This is one of the best collections on this web page, for anyone not familiar with the classical music possibilities for the wedding service.
The CD contains piano performances of the included works, so the pianist can listed to how the arrangements are suppose to sound.
For the bride and groom, the CD is the only way to listen to all the possibilites, and make selections based on what would be most appropriate for their wedding. Once the selections are made, the pianist can be given the music, which is exactly what is heard on the CD.
Notes for the pianist. . . the arrangements are very good, time has been taken to arrange for the intermediate level, with good sounding arrangements not overly awkward. The only drawback is that both Ave Marias and the Bach "Bist Du Bei Mir" are vocal with piano solo: great, if you have a vocalist, but these will not work as piano solo.
Overall, an excellent collection for both the pianist and the wedding couple, to figure out what to play, when to play it (there is a lengthy text section covering the wedding ceremony, as well as appropriate sections of the ceremony for the selections), and how the music will sound when played. Most of these will be familiar works, even if not readily identifiable from the titles.
Highly recommended.

Wedding Album For The Classical Pianist
Advanced Piano Solo

Outstanding collection of appropriate music for the formal wedding, arranged or edited by Robert Schultz. Even if you don't buy this, scan the contents list for suitable music ideas which you might have in your own library.
I don't know if I'd ever play Elgar's "Pomp & Circumstance" at a wedding (!), or a Schubert Impromptu. . . But, there are many pieces very beautifully arranged by Schultz which you won't be able to find elsewhere (perhaps the best arranged "Jesu, Joy" in print). This collection is for the more advanced pianist. Highly recommended.

Vivaldi: The Four Seasons
Intermediate to Lower Advanced Piano Solo

Includes an introduction about the history of The Four Seasons and translations of the four sonnets written by the composer about the concertos. Vivaldi's vivid indications that appear throughout the score have been translated into English.
There are sections of this famous work that would be very good for Prelude music, or even as background music during the reception. Tricky passages do require nimble fingerwork, but overall not too difficult.

Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring


Note regarding Jesu, Joy above - from Dr. Vaga. . .
The individual sheet of "Jesu Joy" above is rather difficult and awkward, in my opinion, more of an advanced piano arrangement. You must be able to comfortably reach 10ths in the left hand, and have very good control of double-notes in the right hand. If you're looking for an intermediate version of this work, the best arrangement I have found at the intermediate level is in the following collection. Check the contents, as there are several other pieces suitable for wedding music. - RV
