This week, we’ll be sharing our top music picks for various moments throughout the wedding day. The processional, or walk down the aisle, is such an important part of the wedding day, and the music played should feel special, romantic, emotional, and dramatic, all rolled into one. There are several classic selections for the processional, including “Canon in D” by Pachelbel, Wagner’s “Bridal Chorus,” and Clarke’s “Trumpet Voluntary,” but you can also choose a more modern song to play as you walk down the aisle. Here are a few of our more contemporary processional favorites.

1. “Ave Maria” by Beyonce

2. “Feels Like Home” by Chantal Kreviazuk

3. “Bittersweet Symphony (Instrumental)” by The Verve

4. “A Thousand Years” by Christina Perri

5. “Bless the Broken Road” by Rascal Flatts

6. “In My Life” by the Beatles

7. “Over the Rainbow” by Israel Kamakawiwo’ole

8. “A Ribbon in the Sky” by Stevie Wonder
