Mendelssohn's Wedding March

This music was written by Mendelssohn in 1842 as part of a suit of incidental music to Shakespeares A Midsummer Night's Dream.
This music is extremely popular for the exit of the bride and groom following the marriage ceremony.
The piece was first used at a wedding in 1847 but didn't become popular until Queen Victorias daughter Victoria married Prince Frederick of Prussia in 1858.
