  1. This is an awesome list! Most weddings I’ve been to or know of still go the traditional route with the Bridal March. I did attend one wedding where the wedding party danced down the aisle to “Marry You” by Bruno Mars. But this list has new fresh ideas! So many great songs including the Lily Allen cover of “Somewhere only we Know” and Leon Bridges “River.” I hope to attend a wedding soon that uses one of these. Or maybe I’ll use one myself!
