Bridal Entrance Songs That Cannot Fail to Make a Moment

That emotional moment when you walk down the aisle to meet your future spouse demands a fantastic soundtrack!

One of the most memorable aspects of a wedding is the walk down the aisle. Expect a few tears as your spouse sees you in your gown for the first time, and having a loved one by your side always adds to the drama. To gain inspiration for this magic moment, and to create a scene that will never be forgotten. We recommend listening to our favourite bridal entrance songs of all time. Songs that will truly speak to you, and tunes that will help you glide down the aisle.



During your big day, you'll have two important entrances: the bride's entrance to the ceremony and your wedding reception arrival moment as newly-weds. However, the bride's arrival marks the official start of the wedding day. And it is a timeless part of the nuptials that should be celebrated. That is why we have curated a dedicated list of bridal entrance songs that we know will offer something you'll love.


How to Pick Which Bridal Entrance Songs Work For You

Typically, couples choose between bridal entrance songs together. However, there are a few crucial points to consider.


First, the tempo: you don't want something too quick. Instead, you need a song that allows you to walk at a slower pace than your typical rate. If the speed of your chosen song is too fast, see if there's an acoustic version available.


Second, decide whether you want classical music, a song with lyrics, or an instrumental rendition of a popular song. You'll need to figure out when you want the music to fade (assuming it's not a live band), so you can pace your walk. It's best not to arrive at the front mid-verse or peak crescendo.


It's a lovely idea if you want the music you walk with to be a surprise. An instrumental version of a classic film theme song is always fun! Your guests will be delighted to see your partner's response, and it will make an excellent shot for your photographer.
