The Great Highland Bagpipe is traditionally used at weddings to provide processional music and at the conclusion of the ceremony to provide recessional music.

At the conclusion of the service a final hymn such as Amazing Grace or The Flowers of the Forest are typically performed. For corporate events, golf tournaments, parties, and other social events, marches, reels, airs, jigs, and strathspeys are the tradition.
