Wedding Ceremony Songs: Our top picks!

July 17, 2023

Your processional song is the music that you and your wedding party will walk down the aisle to. While some couples like to have one song for everyone, others select multiple songs to play throughout this time. At the conclusion of your ceremony, you and your partner will leave the venue to your recessional music, which typically is more upbeat than the processional.

We’ve compiled a list of our top 10 processional and recessional songs to play during your wedding ceremony.


Our top 10 Wedding Ceremony Songs

Today I do by Tamia (Our #1 Choice)

If this song hasn’t been on your radar yet, take a listen. It’s sure to bring a new favorite love song to your family and friends. 

Canon in D by Pachelbel

This beautiful piece of music sounds great played by a traditional quartet, but we also love this version by Brooklyn Duo on Cello and Piano.

Forever by Jason Nelson

One of the newest songs on the list, this one is definitely soon to be a classic wedding song!

A Thousand Years by Christina Perry

We seriously love everything about this song by Christina Perry

Somewhere over the Rainbow by Israel Kamakawiwo’Ole

This is a classic feel good song performed on the ukulele and is sure to have everyone smiling as you enter!

Don’t Stop Believing, Vitamin String Quartet (originally Journey)

This powerful string heavy version of the song is rich with emotion and is another great choice for a less traditional processional.

Signed, Sealed, Delivered by Stevie Wonder

The words of this song are coupled with uptempo greatness. Leave the venue celebrating your brand new union with this hit from Stevie Wonder.

Now that we found love by Heavy D & The Boyz

From the movie Hitch, this song is sure to have your guests ready for an evening of excitement celebrating your vows with you.

I don’t want to miss a thing by Aerosmith

Tear Jerker! This song is packed with so much emotion that there may not be a dry set of eyes in the room.

Bridal Chorus (Here comes the Bride) by 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. We’ve chosen a slightly more modern arrangement by Vicente Avella on classical piano.


Best Part by H.E.R and Daniel Caesar

We had to show some love to the Canadian Grammy winner, Daniel Caesar on this one. This song is a perfect acoustic duet!
