If it's not one of these pieces of ClassicalMusic being played at the wedding, odds are pretty good it's Music/PachelbelsCanon.

either ''Music/PachelbelsCanon'' or the ''Prince of Denmark's March'' (sometimes incorrectly called the ''Trumpet Voluntary''[[note]]which is a ''type'' of musical composition, like the symphony, concerto, or sonata[[/note]], and notable for being used at [[UsefulNotes/TheHouseOfWindsor Princess Diana's]] wedding) by Jeremiah Clarke.

These two pieces, commonly referred to as "Lohengrin" and "Mendelssohn," are often played at RealLife and fictional weddings, even if those [[AnachronismStew weddings are in films set before the pieces were actually composed.]] The combination may have been popularized by its use at the wedding of Princess Victoria and Crown Prince Friedrich of Prussia (later Kaiser Friedrich III) in 1858. Some churches discourage the use of this and other [[http://www.perkinschapelweddingmusic.com/faq.htm secular music]] at weddings held in their facilities. Some churches and musicians also discourage their use because of the context: Elsa's wedding in ''Lohengrin'' is anything but happy, the marriage wasn't consummated, and by the end her beloved departs and her brother has been turned into a swan; and ''A Midsummer Night's Dream'' is not the most... shall we say "monogamous" of Shakespeare's plays. And some organists are just bloody sick of them. The former is also generally not used at Jewish weddings, due to Wagner's anti-Semitism and his association with Nazism (Mendelssohn was a Lutheran with Jewish ancestry, by the way).

* The IrrelevantActOpener "Bride and Groom" from the musical ''Oh, Kay!'' begins with a longer version of the punny Ira Gershwin lyric quoted above; GeorgeGershwin set the first line to a variation on Mendelssohn's tune.

* In ''Matrimelee'', the last ''VideoGame/PowerInstinct'' game to be released in English, the reward for defeating [[SNKBoss Princess Sissy]] and winning the tournament is to marry her. Appropriately enough, a remix of Lohengrin plays when she appears, and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2QkA5E8DwTo a remix of Mendelssohn]] plays for the fight.
