Canon in D - Johann Pachelbel
Most likely, you have heard this composition at a wedding you attended. It has become synonymous with wedding music, mostly for bridesmaids, flower girls and ring bearers. The German spelling for this is Kanon.
Largo from Winter Concerto - Antonio Vivaldi
A piece from Vivaldi's Seasons concerto for violin and strings, a very nice bridesmaid alternative.
Menuet from Berenice - George Frederic Handel
This "Menuet" is from one of Handel's later operas.
Romance - Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
This is the second movement from Mozart's Eine Kleine Nachtmusik
Air from Water Music - George Frederic Handel
Handel composed the Water Music Suite to regain favor with King George I of England. The Air is a very well known piece from this suite.
