How to play Here Comes the Bride on Saxophone

On this page, we'll be learning how to play Here Comes the Bride on Alto Saxophone, Tenor Saxophone, Baritone Saxophone or Soprano Saxophone!

One of the most-played wedding songs in the Western world, the Bridal Chorus (also known as Here Comes the Bride) dates back to the 19th century. German composer Richard Wagner composed it for his 1850 opera Lohengrin, where it is heard at the start of the third act. Just eight years later, the Bridal Chorus was played as the processional for the wedding of Prussian royals Prince Frederick William and Victoria, and it has retained its popularity at weddings ever since. It is sometimes confused with another instrumental work frequently performed at weddings, Felix Mendelssohn's "Wedding March".
