Mendelssohn's "Wedding March" is one of the best known of the pieces that he wrote for A Midsummer Night's Dream in 1842. It is one of the most played wedding marches. At weddings in many English-speaking countries, this piece is commonly used as a recessional, though frequently stripped of its episodes in this context. The first time it was used at a wedding was when Dorothy Carew wed Tom Daniel at St Peter’s Church, Tiverton, UK, on 2 June 1847. However it did not become popular at weddings until it was selected by Victoria, The Princess Royal for her marriage to the Crown Prince of Prussia on January 25, 1858. - Wedding March (Mendelssohn) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaBittersweet pain...
