Maybe you are the type of woman who has been planning her wedding ever since she was a little girl. Or perhaps, you do not give that much thought to weddings, but now that you will be walking down the aisle, you would want it to be as perfect as possible. We totally get that!
Are you looking for perfect ideas? Well, you have come to the right place. One of the perfect wedding ideas that you can ever have is to choose the right song for your wedding ceremony and that is exactly what we will help you with.
1. God Bless The Broken Road (Rascal Flatts)
If you have believed that your partner is the one that God has designed for you for the rest of your lives, this is the perfect ceremony song for you. Through this song, you are expressing your belief that it was God who was weaving your love story and that everything that has happened in the past, both good and bad, has to happen so that the both of you will realize that you are meant for one another.
This song will also remove any trace of worries or cold feet that you may have. After all, you are in a God-approved relationship, right?
2. At Last (Etta James)
If you have been together since forever and you have been waiting for this moment for as long as you can remember, this song will sum up everything that you are feeling. This is also perfect for those brides who have long been waiting for the love of their lives and now have finally found him.
This is usually used as a first dance song but can you imagine how amazing to hear this song as you walk to your future husband?
3.A Thousand Years (Christina Perri)
The lyrics of this song expresses undying love which is exactly what you are showing to your partner by marrying him. The song also says that you will love him for a thousand more years (or for the rest of your lives!). What can be sweeter than that?
But if you do not want any lyrics, the instrumental version of this song will be perfect too. The melodramatic tune is quite moving and can certainly bring you both (and the guests) to tears.
4. Canon In D (Pachelbel)
This is a popular choice for couples. In fact, you might already be familiar with this if you have attended lots of weddings already. But this remains to be an excellent choice because of how gorgeous and moving the sound is.
5. Somewhere Over The Rainbow (Israel Kamakawiwo’ Ole)
If you are planning a low-key wedding and you wish to have something different as your wedding song, this is the best option for you. It may be a bit upbeat, but the message of this song is lovely and romantic. Plus, you can ditch the quartet and bring out the ukulele. That would be more laid back, not to mention, affordable!
6. Bridal Chorus (Wagner)
Many people know this song as Here Comes The Bride. This is a traditional song for the bridal march, hence its title. If you wish to go the traditional route, you can have it played on an organ. But today, there are plenty of modern arrangements of this song that are played on a classical piano. It sounds almost the same minus the overbearing drama!
7. Dawn (Andrew Lapp)
If you are a fan of Pride and Prejudice, then you are already familiar with this song. That’s because this is the piano arrangement that is being played almost all throughout the film. The melody is to die for but what makes it a great ceremony song is because of its connection to the romantic plot of the movie.
When choosing a ceremony song, you should use your imagination. Picture your big day—the way you look, the way your partner looks at you and the way the guests gawk at you. What song do you hear is playing in the background? Try to listen to your top choice while imagining this scenario and you will surely find the clear winner!
Whatever ceremony songs you will choose, you have to make sure that it is a special one. Keep in mind that this will be the last time that you will walk or march as a single lady and the march also signifies the start of a long-lasting love between you and your partner. That’s why you ensure that the walk will be a memorable one, not just for you but your husband as well.
