10 Underrated Songs to Walk Down the Aisle ToJuly 10, 2017 by The Marquardt Ranch
In this day and age, brides seek to customize more and more of their wedding details—from the decor to the music and everything in between. While entering to the traditional Bridal Chorus is always a fantastic choice (and might be underrated in its own right), there are a variety of other songs that are often underrated, yet great choices for a memorable walk down the aisle. Here are ten for your consideration!
“After It All ” by Delta Rae
A gorgeous, understated duet between the two lead singers, this song keeps the slow and stately pace of more traditional entrance songs while still feeling personal and emotional.
“The Knot” by Jill Barber
This sweet and mellow indie song describes the significance of the day, making it perfect for your processional.
“1, 2, 3, 4” by Plain White Tees
You probably wouldn’t expect a rock band to have a song for a wedding processional, but this crooning tune might just change your mind.
“Feels Like Home” by Chantal Kreviazuk
This song’s soaring refrain sums up all there is to say—being with your significant other is a special and unique feeling.
“First Day of My Life” by Bright Eyes
Another sweet song, “First Day of My Life” would be an excellent processional song for a casually elegant wedding.
“Such Great Heights” by Iron and Wine
This song, with its meandering guitar melody, makes for a wonderful processional song. The lyrics are equally as lovely, too!
“Heart” by Sleeping at Last
Full of gorgeous metaphors, this song is already set against a lovely string accompaniment, which makes it an excellent candidate for a purely instrumental rendition if you prefer your processional song to be without vocals.
“Grow Old with Me” by Mary Chapin Carpenter
Elegant and hopeful, this traditional country song is a wonderful choice for a stately walk down the aisle and sounds as if it would be equally at home being played in a cathedral or on a riverside.
“Everything Has Changed” by Taylor Swift, ft. Ed Sheeran
Any time Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran team up, the result is bound to be lovely. More upbeat than most of the others on the list, this song makes another great choice for a casual wedding or a fun-loving couple.
“Always Been You” by The Sweeplings
Last but not least comes this gorgeous tune by the singer/songwriter duo The Sweeplings. Whether you decide on using vocals for the processional or choosing an instrumental arrangement, either would make a for a beautiful walk to your groom.
While some of these songs have been noted as being particularly good options for an instrumental arrangement, most of the others can be arranged that way as well. And should you decide to stick to a more traditional piece for your walk down the aisle, that’s fine, too. After all, it’s your day!
