That moment when you walk down the aisle will long be burned into your mind, and that means that the music you walk to will, too. We’re in a time when the traditional “Here Comes the Bride” or “Pachelbel’s Canon” just won’t cut it for many brides and grooms, and a little change of pace is necessary.
What song should you walk down the aisle to? Bridal Musings came up with a list of 13 alternative processional songs, and we’ve chosen our top five from their list (in no particular order).
• “Moth’s Wings” by Passion Pit—For those looking for something a little faster-paced, Passion Pit’s song is just that. The upbeat tempo and optimistic tones create a song that’s inspiring and sure to ignite joy.
• “Can’t Help Falling in Love” by Ingrid Michaelson—If you’re not quite ready to give up on classic songs, try one with a twist. Ingrid Michaelson’s achingly beautiful voice makes this song a perfect option.
• “Longing to Belong” by Eddie Vedder—From one of the most iconic alternative rock musicians comes a powerful and sweet song about falling in love. Ukulele included.
• “Reign of Love” by Coldplay—As always, beautifully flowing piano accompanies Chris Martin’s voice in this song about being caught prisoner in a reign of love.
