Wedding Procession Music

One of the most important and most subtle of wedding details, the wedding procession music of your wedding is both a reflection of your personality as a bride or groom and reflection of the mood of energy of your ceremony. However, finding the best wedding procession music is not always easy.
By Caitlin Benetatos

Walking down the aisle towards your husband-to-be is a hugely significant part of your wedding day. To ensure that this once-in-a-lifetime moment is everything you want it to be, you have to consider your music selection carefully. Your processional song will act as the soundtrack to one of the most memorable occasions of your life, so it's important to get it right!
In selecting your processional song, it is important to consider the following:
• Are you hiring live musicians to perform on the day? If so, check with the musicians that they are able to perform the particular song in the first place, as leaving it until the last minute may result in disappointment.
• How fast is your chosen song? Remember that you do want to exude elegance and grace, so stick with songs with a slower tempo. Running up the aisle in your wedding dress won't make for a great look!
• How many members are in your bridal party? If you have a large entourage walking up the aisle on the day, make sure the song you have selected is long enough to last from the flower-girl's first steps, right through until you have reached the alter. Walking up the aisle in silence, because the music finished thirty seconds too early, would feel a little under-whelming.
• If have chosen a contemporary song to walk down the aisle to, check the lyrics first! So many songs out there are about a break-up.
There are several different paths you can take when it comes to selecting your processional music. The following are just some of the options out there:

If you have always dreamed of the classic, fairytale wedding, then classical music is probably the right choice. Elegant and timeless, classical music will set you up with a dramatic entrance that will tear at guests heartstrings.
Popular classical wedding songs include:
Canon in D - Pachelbel
Wedding March - Wagner
Concerto for Two Violins, 2nd Mvt - Bach
Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring - Bach
Air on G - Bach
Flower Duet - Delibes
Ave Maria - Schubert

If you and your partner have a more relaxed approach towards the ceremony, then selecting a contemporary song to be performed as you walk down the aisle can be a great way to evoke your ideal atmosphere. The addition of lyrics is also a bonus as they can be used to express to how the two of you feel about one another.
Popular contemporary wedding sons include:

Marry Me - Train
My Only Hope - Mandy Moore
Lullaby - Dixie Chicks
Everything I Do - Bryan Adams
Here, There and Everywhere - The Beatles
From This Moment - Shania Twain
Gorecki - Lamb
Heaven (Slow Version) - DJ Sammy
Only Time - Enya
All My Life - K-Ci & JoJo
I'm Yours - Jason Mraz
Better Together - Jack Johnson

If you want something a little different, that still oozes grace and sophistication, why not have a popular jazz standard performed? There is so much great jazz out there that you can use, and they won't be as repetitive as some of the contemporary song options.
Popular jazz processional songs include:

Moon River - Mancini
Somewhere Over The Rainbow - Judy Garland
The Way You Look Tonight - Frank Sinatra
At Last - Etta James
What A Wonderful World - Louis Armstrong
