All weddings are unique and should be expressions of the couple tying the knot. They’re a beautiful opportunity to create a moment with friends, family, and other loved ones. Walking down the aisle provides another opportunity many couples don’t think to take advantage of to create the perfect once-in-a-lifetime moment with their new spouse. There is so much opportunity for creativity in this simple walk! Will you have the youngest people in your life carry the rings and spread flowers to grace your path? What order will you have the wedding party approach the front in? Most importantly, what music will you use?

A great wedding processional song includes a beautiful intro to set the scene, a steady rhythm to pace the steps to, and can sometimes include a piano or guitar part so beautiful guests will get teary-eyed just listening to it. These 40 wedding processional songs are modern, unique, and guaranteed to capture the moment you’re looking to create.

  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!
