5 Pieces of Music For Walking Down the Aisle
Walking down the aisle is the moment that fills brides with the most anticipation. It's likely the first glimpse that your soon-to-be husband and guests get of you on your Big Day. This moment can be filled with emotion. Choosing the correct piece of music to walk down the aisle to sets the tone for your entire wedding ceremony and will be one of the most memorable parts of the day.
Below are 5 pieces of music that are ideal for walking down the aisle to.
1. Wedding March: For couples who want to keep it traditional, Mendelssohn's Wedding March is a staple. Guests will instantly recognise this wedding classic and you won't go wrong with a good pianist or organist playing it as you make your big entrance.
2. She Moved Through the Fair: I walked down the aisle to this haunting traditional Irish tune myself. It is such a beautiful song with lyrics that are wedding related (although the ending is quite sad!) and is a very classy choice, especially for an Irish wedding.
3. Christ Be Beside Me : For a church wedding, the priest will generally allow you to choose 1 or 2 secular songs. Most couples like to use these songs for signing the register. Christ Be Beside Me is a nice, upbeat hymn, ideal for creating a cheerful opening to your wedding ceremony.
4. What a Wonderful World: The sentiment of this Louis Armstrong song is spot on for wedding ceremonies. The words encapsulate all of your probable feelings on your wedding day and it is a nice lively song to walk down the aisle to.
5. Pachelbel's Canon: This instrumental piece is another classic wedding piece. Ideal for a church or civil ceremony, if you want a touch of pure class, you won't go wrong.
