This might sound like a stupid question, but when I search top songs or popular songs to walk down the isle to some of the options are just the music and some options are actual songs with lyrics. Every wedding I've ever been too it was just the melody/music no lyrics. How do I choose a song? I need help.

    Pick whatever you want. Most aisle walks will only be a minute max so the dj will cut the song short.

    Yes you can pick any song you like! I personally like lyrics better, so I walked down to a Cover of "God Gave Me You" and there was lyrics playing. Smiley smile

    There are no rules about this except with certain churches. So if you aren't getting married in a church, you can literally pick any song you like, with or without lyrics.

    Are there any songs you really like or have a special attachment to? If not, you can try making a playlist of contenders as you think of them, and it's fine if you add in songs that you find via search or other playlists. As you listen to them, hopefully one clicks and you can envision yourself walking down the aisle to it.

    I personally prefer songs with no lyrics. We hired a cellist and violinist for the ceremony music. The song I selected for my aisle walk was Tale as Old as Time from Beauty and the Beast. I've loved it forever and the instrumental version is absolutely beautiful!

    I chose a song that the groom likes. He told me that when he hears it, he thinks of me!

    A trick I’ve learned was to look up music from movies since it’s usually background music !
    For example, my song will be Turning Page (instrumental version) by Sleeping at Last and it was specifically written for Twilight but it’s such a beautiful song. So think back to some romantic movie music To get inspired!

    As others have said you can definitely pick which ever song that you would like including lyrics or instrumental 😊 I would start off by making a list of songs that you love and remind you of your partner and same for your partner to do as well. You might just find a common song. Youtube also has plenty of playlist options already made and you can listen to them on your own and create your own playlist 🥰 Best of luck! I found a few songs and so far I am thinking of doing one song as walking down the aisle and one song as we take our first steps as a married couple 💕✨

    I want to walk to the song w/lyrics but afraid it will be too long. My daughter is our only wedding party. Any thoughts on how to make it work? Is it cheesy if she takes her time to walk and I wait some time before walking down the isle? I mean I really truly want to walk down the isle to this song...

    It's whatever you like! I was pretty set on walking to the instrumental of Canon in D, but ultimately ended up choosing "Marry Me" by Train with lyrics!

    Wedding party is walking down to the Vitamin String Quartet's version of "Storybook Love" from The Princess Bride (without lyrics). I'll have it fade out and then I'll walk to "So this is Love" from Cinderella (with lyrics). It's all up to you! Also, check with your fiance to see if they have any ideas! They might have some favorite soundtracks that might work.
