Perfect Songs To Walk Down The Aisle To

Perfect Songs To Walk Down The Aisle To

wedding songs

One of my favorite parts of my wedding planning process was picking the music that would accompany my wedding ceremony and reception. It was something that I could listen to and remember long after the wedding was over. And it was one of the few parts of my wedding planning that my husband was really excited about planning with me. (Don’t get me wrong, he was excited to get married, he just didn’t care what flowers I picked you know?). Well, the music and the food anyways. He was all about some cake tasting ha!

Anyways, back to the music. Picking the song that you are going to walk down the aisle to is something that should have a lot of thought put into it. It will be the first time your loved ones (and your man or woman!) is going to see you in all your bridal glory. It is your moment. Embrace it, and remember it with a great song. (For the record, I walked down my Alice in Wonderland themed wedding to a song called Through the Looking Glass  by Hypnogaja.) So I thought I would share some classic, modern, and perfect songs to walk down the aisle to in case you were looking for some ideas!

Here are some perfect songs to walk down the aisle to:
