Wedding Songs for Walking Down the Aisle

Traditional hymns like Canon in D or the Wedding March typically spring to mind when thinking of popular walking-down-the-aisle music. While a classic wedding song is still an option, we like to see couples modernize wedding traditions. After all, your ceremony should feel like an extension of who you are.

If you and your spouse are big country music fans, find a song with a country vibe! Have a soft spot for Taylor Swift? We know she’s got a few love songs. And if R&B is your thing, you’ll definitely have a lot to choose from. We encourage you to step away from the norm, the age-old traditions—instead, personalize your wedding ceremony by throwing in your favorite tunes.

There is no doubt that the music you play throughout your wedding helps to set the ambiance and tone for the event. It’s an aspect of the wedding that many people don’t think much about. But the songs you choose on your wedding day will help produce great memories that will last a lifetime. Your song selections should also convey who you are as a couple: classical traditionalists, vintage music connoisseurs, or pure romantics.

And of course, one of the most important tunes that will play at your wedding is when you walk down the aisle. It’s when the wedding becomes fully real to you and your fiance. And everyone, guests included, will be filled with emotions as time seems to stand still for a little moment.
