You may have spent a long time discussing your first dance song with your partner, but don’t neglect other important pieces of music you’ll need on your day! For your wedding ceremony songs, you’ll need to make at least two choices – namely, your processional and recessional songs.
A processional song is the music that you and your wedding party will walk down the aisle to – you can have one song for everyone, or choose a separate song for your grand entrance. At the end of the ceremony, you and your new husband leave the venue to your recessional music, which tends to be more upbeat than the processional.
1.Bridal Chorus, Wagner
Often known as "Here Comes The Bride", this piece of classical music is the traditional choice for the procession of the bride, and is often played on an organ. But this is the classical piano – that way you can keep the element of tradition without the drama!
2. Christina Perri - A Thousand Years (Piano/Cello Cover) - ThePianoGuys
Often couples can’t decide between a classic instrumental or a more modern lovesong with vocals for their processional music. Why not get the best of both worlds with an instrumental cover of one of your favourite songs?
3. All of Me - John Legend - Violin and Guitar Cover - Daniel Jang
Another very popular choice with brides. This gorgeous piece of music sounds beautiful.
4.Somewhere Over the Rainbow by Israel Kamakawiwo'Ole
For something a little bit different, you can’t beat this gorgeous ukelele cover – it’s sure to get everyone smiling!
5.Love Actually Soundtrack-Glasgow Love Theme
Walking down the aisle to a song from your favourite film soundtrack is another way to incorporate instrumental music with a personal touch into your ceremony.
6. Mendelssohn's Wedding March
This is the traditional choice for the wedding recessional. This grand organ piece is definitely all about the high drama, so is best suited to larger or religious venues.
7. Handel Arrival of the Queen of Sheba - The Sixteen
This classical piece may be intended to signify an arrival, but it works perfectly for a recessional – it’s high tempo and undoubtedly joyful. Perfect for more traditional couples.
8. Vitamin String Quartet - Don't Stop Believing
Another classical cover of a modern tune – this version of Journey’s Don’t Stop Believing as played by a string quartet, as it strikes the perfect balance between traditional and contemporary.
9. Hitch Wedding Dance Scene - End of Movie
For those looking for something truly different .Will Smith and Eva Mendes get down to it in the last scene of "Hitch". Do you think you and your new husband can beat their moves?
