  • ‘A Thousand Years’ by Cristina Perri: A song all about eternal love, it can definitely work as a wedding processional tune.
  • ‘Hallelujah’ by Jeff Buckley: Perhaps one of the most beautiful songs ever written, it makes a stunning soundtrack for walking down the aisle. The version by Rufus Wainwright is also ah-mazing.
  • ‘La Vie en Rose’ by Andrea Bocelli: Rather go the classical route? Mr. Bocelli is a great pick.
  • ‘I Was Married’ by Tegan and Sara: This offering by the indie pop twins is a modern classic.
  • “Hoppípolla” by Sigur Rós: A spare, piano-driven song, it provides a highly-romantic option.
  • ‘Magic’ by Colbie Caillat: Known for her laid-back tunes, Ms. Caillat’s breathy voice easily lends itself to wedding. This is one of her more romantic songs.
