Looking for wedding piano ideas for a cozy, intimate wedding and/or reception? Piano music--be it live or be it a CD or digital format-- would certainly fit the setting. Luckily, either option is easy to obtain.
Tip: Fortunately, there are many accomplished pianists in the world and you shouldn't have much trouble finding one in your area. Organists can also be terrific pianists (but it does not necessarily work the other way around!). If you don't know a pianist or an organist, contacting a local college/university can help you find a wonderful pianist in short order. A reputable piano teacher and/or local music stores can also be excellent sources in your quest.
As far as wedding piano websites are concerned, I think a must-see site is:
However, I seriously recommend spending some time at The Piano Brothers. They offer 3 wedding CDs and each song has a song clip of decent length. Each CD places every song into either the prelude, processional, ceremony, recessional or reception category to make planning easier. The CDs can be purchased individually or in package deals.
In addition, if you look clear at the top of their website and to the extreme right, you'll find a link entitled My Wedding Music. Click on it will take you specifically to their piano wedding site. Once there, you will find tons more very helpful information.
Beyond the above:
(As an aside, you probably already know that Pachelbel's Canon in D is a very popular wedding processional song and for good reasons. Take a break for a moment now, & listen to "Rockelbel"....a clever and fun take on Canon in D by The Piano Guys!)
In my opinion, The Piano Brothers have many beautiful arrangements (not just wedding songs, either) played with melodious expression which creates a wonderfully relaxing listening experience. To view all of their available music and CDs, visit The O'Neill Brothers.
Obviously, other piano wedding music CDs with song clips can easily be found online. Here are just a couple:
