Walking Down the Aisle: Music You’ll Love

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).

•               “Falling in Love at a Coffee Shop” by Landon Pigg—It’s a quiet, romantic, and features cello, guitar, and piano. What more could you want? Oh, and it’s got Landon Pigg’s dreamy voice, too.Screen shot 2556-08-27 at 15.34.42

•               “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.

  1. Great ideas…pop music is the new trend. This summer we’ve played Falling Slowly, Pixar themes, Hallelujah (Cohen), Bruno Mars, Coldplay, and A Thousand Years (Christina Perri) for processionals!
