Here are 13 of our favourite wedding aisle songs you should carefully consider.
‘Kissing You’ by Des’ree
This beautiful song was featured on the 1996 Romeo + Juliet soundtrack, and boy is it a tear-jerker! If you aren’t too keen on the lyrics, Kissing You also sounds incredibly beautiful when performed live as an instrumentalversion. This song will be sure to start your ceremony on a good note.
‘Lay Me Down’ by Sam Smith
Used by ‘The Young Mummy’ Blogger, Sophie Cachia, for her processional song, ‘Lay Me Down’ is the perfect tempo to walk toward your love at your wedding ceremony
‘Young and Beautiful’ by Lana Del Rey
Another song from a Baz Luhrmann movie, Young and Beautiful was featured on the soundtrack for the 2013 version of The Great Gatsby. Lana Del Ray’s enchanting voice mixed with sweet lyrics makes this song a lovely modern choice for your processional song!
‘You’ve Got the Love’ – Florence + the Machine
Perhaps not a traditional pick as the song is quite upbeat in nature, but it is a great choice for alternative Brides who would prefer a more up-tempo approach to their walk down the aisle. Definitely one of our faves as a wedding song.
‘Somewhere Only We Know’ by Lily Allen
A cover of the original song by Keane, Lily Allen injects a feminine twist to this gorgeous, simple song. I’m crying just watching the music video!
‘Million Reasons’ by Lady Gaga
This song is so raw and emotional, there won’t be a single dry eye in the venue – including yours!
‘Your Song’ cover by Ellie Goulding
Ellie’s version of this classic Elton John track is so perfectly simple, yet beautiful. This isn’t very well known as a wedding song, but should be! It is absolutely gorgeous as a song to walk down the aisle to.
‘A Thousand Years’ by Christina Perri
Even if you’re not a fan of Twilight, it’s hard to deny that this is a beautiful song. This is a particularly popular wedding ceremony song – for good reason. You try seeing a beautiful girl walk down the aisle to this song and NOT crying! Impossible.
