150 Of The Best Wedding Songs To Walk Down The Aisle To

15 January 2020

From Ed Sheeran to The Beatles to Etta James, here are 150 amazing songs to consider for your grand entrance

The songs you choose for your wedding day create beautiful moments that you know will stay in your memory forever. Your song choices are also a great way to express who you are as a couple: classical traditionalists, vintage music aficionados, or pure romantics.

We would argue that probably the most significant wedding song moment is the bridal entrance. It’s when the wedding becomes truly real and you, your groom, and your guests all become overcome with emotion as time slows down for just a second.

It can be a hard task to select the right wedding song to express so much, so we’ve pulled together a list of 150 of the best wedding songs to walk down the aisle to, known for their beautiful lyrics, to help amplify the romance of your aisle walk with music.

How To Choose The Right Song

There’s a lot to think about with all song choices, but the bridal entrance and songs to walk down the aisle to have their own requirements. Here are three insider tips to know about when selecting the chosen song.

#1 Medium

The first step is to get clear on the medium you’ll be using for the songs. Will there be instruments, a pianist, a singer, a friend or playlist that you have your heart set on? The medium that you decide on will help make a number of other choices more easily, so it’s important to decide on this upfront.

#2 Meaning

You’ll remember the music and songs to walk down the aisle to for years to come, so your wedding songs should reflect your personalities as a couple and have meaning for both of you. Meaning can come in a few ways. Your bridal entrance song could express your feelings toward your partner: for example, do you feel like you are marrying your high school sweetheart, or has it taken a long and winding road to finally find true love? Your song could also reflect your life as a couple and even the blending of families, especially if you’ll be walking down the aisle with your father by your side which plays up the emotion. Or do you want to walk down the aisle to “your song”? Discuss the choice together to find the song that really speaks to you.

#3 Pace

The actual pace of the wedding songs you select when walking down the aisle is a highly important component. You’ll need something with a slightly slower than normal pace so that you and your bridesmaids can walk comfortably down the aisle. If you have your heart set on a song that has a quick tempo, see if there’s a slower acoustic version available. It’s also worth working out when you want the song to fade so you can time your music to finish as you arrive in front of your partner.
