Sometimes couples who are getting married ask me for the best wedding songs to walk down the aisle to – surprisingly I don’t always go for the traditional “Here Comes the Bride” or the famous “Bridal Chorus” by Wagner. Indeed, when it comes to favorite wedding processional songs there are plenty of alternatives to choose from. If you want suggestions for wedding ceremony music and songs for brides walking down the aisle then our list of the best music to walk down the aisle to will help you on your special day.
Choosing the Best Walking Down the Aisle Songs
So you are asking yourself “what song can I walk down the aisle to?”Well, there are many walk down the aisle wedding songs that you can pick but when it comes to finding the right wedding music, there are things that you might want to consider. I always recommend couples choose something that gives meaning to their big day but of course, I also advise to do away with wedding aisle songs that are too overused. If you really, really want that song but it has been used over and over again in almost every wedding, you can still use it but try something different, like turning it into a piano solo, an instrumental using a saxophone or a guitar – make the song your own.
Classical Wedding Music
One common choice when it comes to wedding music to walk down the aisle to is classical. Nothing beats the ‘romantic’ atmosphere that classical music gives to the wedding entrance. If you are thinking about what music will play as you walk down the aisle then here are a few picks that can go with your wedding processional and make that grand entrance a little bit more dramatic.
“Canon on D” is one of the most popular choices when it comes to weddings. “Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring” is also another good choice. “The Bridal Chorus” or the ‘Here Comes the Bride’ wedding march is a favorite that you can also use. “Trumpet Voluntary in D” is also good wedding processional music. When it comes to wedding songs for a church ceremony – classical music is always a good choice.
Traditional Wedding Songs
Love to stick to tradition? Then you might want some traditional songs for your wedding processional. Often, classical music is popular but of course, there are also some other good picks. If you don’t want to choose a wedding song that has been around for a long time then you could choose a non-traditional song.

Modern Wedding Processional Songs
Aside from traditional and non-traditional songs, you can also go with a modern wedding song to walk down the aisle to.
