The music you choose for your wedding ceremony could help to set the tone for the entire day. Why not use one of these when you're entering the church and walking up the aisle? You can go for the old reliable bridal march or go for something like Mumford & Sons for a more modern take on the walk.
Traditions can be important to some people, but for others, the whole "Here Comes the Bride" thing can make the walk seem a bit daunting. The last thing you want is to walk up to a song that gives you a knot in your stomach, even on the one of the most special days of your life. So before you just write off your trip up the aisle as something that has to be done to "the usual", why not look at some of our ideas to help set your mind at ease. Remember, you don't just have to go with what everyone else goes with. It's your wedding, and you can choose whatever music you want to walk up to your soon-to-be husband.
Discuss with your musicians what kind of mood you want to set for the ceremony to help you decide what the best song would be to walk up the aisle to. Don't forget, there's also the music for walking down the aisle to as well. Think about both walks when you're choosing the music; you might want to save the more alternative song for the end of the ceremony.
Don't forget to ask friends and family for their input. The decision is ultimately yours, but it's always worth getting a second (or third) opinion.
