Act III includes a quaint march for the entrance of the Mechanicals. We soon hear music quoted from the Overture to accompany the action.
There is only one melodrama in Act IV. This closes with a reprise of the Nocturne to accompany the mortal lovers' sleep. The intermezzo between Acts IV and V is the famous Wedding March , probably the most popular single piece of music composed by Mendelssohn, and one of the most ubiquitous pieces of music ever written.

Long used as the traditional wedding recessional, this song has recently become popular as a processional. Vases of cut spring flowers dotted the front porch. Next-door neighbors Brian Juergens and Andy Swist, who agreed via text message to be witnesses, hung lavender and pastel green crepe paper balls from the ceiling of their own porch.
Before Ms. Samuels, in a black dress and teal T-strap heels, and Mr. Hillyer, in a charcoal suit, invited Mr. Sedarat onto the porch, there was some stage managing to do.
