Wedding Processional Music

Now most of the guests are seated (except those that inevitably come late) and the wedding party is about to enter. The bridesmaids are lined up outside and someone is trying to convince the flower girl that she really SHOULD walk up the aisle when it's her turn. And then there's the bride herself, taking a few deep breaths and trying to calm her excitement, hoping she will remember how to walk when her wedding processional music begins.

This is the time when everyone gets the first glimpse of the wedding party and the bride at her most radiant. Her wedding processional music has to capture and frame this moment perfectly.

In this discussion of wedding processional music, one song I will not include here for you is the one everyone thinks of: "Here Comes The Bride." Trust me, no one (least of all the bride) needs to be thinking "short, fat and wide" in this memorable moment.

So I've gathered a lot of other wedding processional music options that should be MUCH more appropriate for the bride's walk down the aisle. Here are some choices that will set the mood.  Below is the list starting A-G. You can see the remaining titles H-M and N-Z on separate pages to split up an otherwise long list!
