What songs would you consider great songs to play while the wedding party, bride and groom walk down the aisle at a wedding?

Obviously there are the traditional Pachelbel's Canon in D and whatnot, but I am talking more about the less conventional stuff such as movie soundtracks or band instrumentals.

What are your favorites for such an occasion?

Ha! As you can imagine I went for the tradition Canon in D. But when it was my turn to walk down, the choir changed music to sing Treulich Gehfurt (bridal chorus by wagner) a cappella.

When I sing for weddings, sometimes the bride and groom would request their themesong to be played as the bride walks down the aisle. Traditional love songs though. I haven't been to a wedding with rock song playing.

I have this family friend who got married and his wife to be sang the Titanic - Celine Dion song herself, yes... recorded it and played it herself as she walked down the aisle. It was pretty awkward to be honest. But then again I guess you could call it a backyard style wedding, it was hosted in a small town in the "community center barn" :hah: usually any time a Barn is involved in a wedding I think most traditional bets are off.

But yeah... the song was horrible, she wasn't as good of a singer as she thought she was. Also... that wasn't the only bad thing about that wedding... the theme was Sunflowers and Cowboy Hats. :heh:

I once went to a very religious wedding where the bride walked down the aisle to the song "How Beautiful" sung acapello. It was actually quite lovely.

Oh, poppycock.

I think a song that never gets old in my mind is chasing cars by snow patrol. Its just a simple and beautiful song. There's a poppy version out there for people who want it to be more upbeat.

To be honest I think it depends on where you get married. If you get married in a Church then I believe you should have the traditional song.
If you get married elsewhere then I think it'd be nice to have a song that means something to you. When couples say "This is our song" then it should be used at your wedding if it's really that special.

I agree with you there. Unless the 'our song' is something really cringey and would ruin the atmosphere. I do like the idea of traditional wedding music for a church wedding though.
