Top 5 Contemporary Wedding Songs to Walk Down the Aisle To


rhinestonebridalshoes.jpg

If “Here Comes the Bride” makes you roll your eyes and pray for something a little more modern to walk down the aisle to, we’ve got some ideas for you. But don’t underestimate the importance of this choice. Couples tend to stick to the more traditional choices because they are predictable, safe and have no hidden agendas. Choosing a contemporary wedding song to play at your ceremony can prove to be more of a challenging decision. It is imperative that you understand the song that you choose in its entirety, as well as the artist’s motivation for writing it. It would be disastrous if you picked a song that you thought was romantic but was actually about starving children in Africa. But research takes time, and when you are planning a wedding, time is the one luxury you don’t have. But don’t despair - we have put together our top five choices for you. 

First Day of My Life by Bright Eyes

If you’ve agreed to spend the rest of your life with someone, then chances are you feel exactly the way the guy singing this song feels. When we meet the one, it’s difficult to remember what life was like before we met them, and in many ways, the day you say “I do” really is the first day of your life - your life together as a couple and the beginning of a brand new family.

Seminal quote: Yours is the first face that I saw; I think I was blind before I met you. 

Just the Way You Are by Bruno Mars

This is perfect for the bride with rhythm as it deserves a bit of a boogie down the aisle. In fact, we think that a choreographed dance kicked off with the bridesmaids, followed by the Maid of Honour, and then the perfect moment for the bride to make her way down the aisle is the part in the song where the bells start chiming. But keep the choreography simple because no one wants to see the bride trip over her dress. Well, maybe some people do, but they’re not invited to the wedding.

Seminal quote: If perfects what youre searching for; then just stay the same. 

Signed, Sealed, Delivered, Im Yours by Steve Wonder

If you and your fiancé have been together for the better part of a decade, then you have probably gone through some tough times. Maybe you broke up when you went to study art in San Francisco for three months. Or maybe he gave into family pressure and dumped you for not being religious enough. This is a ceremony song for couples who have been through trials and tribulations and made it through to the other side. Go on, own your sketchy past.

Seminal quote: Then that time I went and said goodbye; now I'm back and not ashamed to cry. 

Lets Do It, Lets Fall In Love by Ella Fitzgerald

You’d be hard pressed to find a song written by Cole Porter that didn’t make you just want to put a ring on the finger of whoever you happen to be sitting next to when you hear it. So, if you’re actually walking towards the man you want to marry, Cole Porter is a great choice. This song has been covered many times, but Ms Fitzgerald’s is our favourite. Her voice is just so rich, warm and timeless.

Seminal quote: The folks in Siam do it; think of Siamese twins. 

Make You Feel My Love by Adele

Yes, we hear all you purists out there crying out in despair, “This is a Bob Dylan song!” We know, and we love Bob Dylan and everything he has ever done. However, he’s not everyone’s cup of tea, and as much as your wedding is your special day, you also don’t want the classless brother of the groom jamming his fingers into his ears as Dylan whines away. Adele’s voice is, shall we say, less vexatious…

Seminal quote: Ive known it from the moment that we met; theres no doubt in my mind where you belong.
