Congratulations! This beautiful and unique music will enhance the experience for the couple as well as all the wedding guests. We will work closely with you in planning how to utilize the bagpipes on this special day. Some popular options are:
Bagpiper playing as guests arrive, either outside or inside, (though keep in mind, they are loud- Scottish smallpipes are a quieter, more mellow option you might want to consider in some situations, depending upon the location, etc.)
Bagpipes playing as the bride walks toward the groom, or as the couple walks toward the ceremony area.
Bagpipes coming-in right after the, "you may kiss the bride," (or equivalent,) line, playing as the crowd cheers and the couple kisses, smiles, etc.
A waltz or other dance tune played on the bagpipes while the couple dances their, "first dance".
Many couples have special requests- songs that are special to them. While special requests are always welcome, it is important to remember that the bagpipe's scale and range are somewhat non-standard. In most cases, a bagpipe version of the song can be arranged. Some popular, traditional bagpipe wedding songs include:
The Bride's Jig
An original composition can also be written to commemorate the couple and the day. This service costs $250 and includes the written score as well as a recording of the song played on bagpipes.
