Pop music: 1858

The arrangements having been carried out as pre-ordained, the marriage took place in the Chapel Royal of St. James's Palace. A little before eleven the great Officers of State and others who were to take part in the ceremonial began to arrive at Buckingham Palace, while the band of the Grenadier Guards played Mendelssohn's famous "Wedding March" in the quadrangle. Soon afterwards, the principal actors began to quit the Palace for St. James's.... ...Lastly appeared the Queen, and her daughter the bride, in a state carriage with cream coloured horses.
--From The Gentleman's Magazine--

Don't you hate it when people use pop music in their wedding ceremony instead of something traditional?

Not that there's anything wrong with that.
