The Ultimate Wedding Ceremony Songs For Walking In & Walking Out

When it comes to thinking about wedding music, many couples spend plenty of time thinking about their first dance.

However, do they give their entrance and exit songs during the ceremony the same attention?

We think that it isn’t only important to think about your reception music, but also to consider your ceremony songs too.

Otherwise, you could end up feeling that you are rushing these all important choices.

To help you to find inspiration, we have put together some of the ultimate walking in and walking out songs for your ceremony.

Bridal Chorus – Wagner

One of the most traditional ways that a bride can make an entrance, this piece of music is sometimes known as “Here Comes the Bride”.

It is often played on an organ in a church setting, however, it also works beautifully in a civil ceremony too.

You can even choose to change the instrument, perhaps having it played on a classical piano or even a guitar if you are feeling extra unique!

A Thousand Years – Christina Perri (Covered By The Piano Guys)

Not sure whether you can decide to go for a classical song or a modern on?

Why not combine the two?

This particular cover is a great example of how you can take a modern song and give it a truly romantic twist. There are a variety of different songs out there that you can choose from, and they make for perfect entrance or exit songs.

A big movie theme

Now, this is a slightly broader theme, but that is simply because there are so many choices to make out there.

There are an assortment of amazing movies out there to choose from, with big romantic songs.

All of which make for the ideal song for your ceremony.

They also are quite impactful too, as there is a good chance that many of your guests will be fans of the song (or the movie) too.

Somewhere Over the Rainbow – Israel Kamakawiwo’Ole

We utterly love this charming cover of a hugely popular song.

It offers something a little bit different for happy couples, particularly if it is to walk out of your wedding ceremony, and helps to get everyone in a fun and upbeat mood.

Whilst still retaining some truly magical romance.

Signed, Sealed, Delivered – Stevie Wonder

You can’t beat a good bit of Stevie Wonder when it comes to walking out of your ceremony.

Not only is this song great fun, but you are sure to get plenty of your guests singing along as you walk down the aisle, and this will be a great opportunity for photos and make sure that everyone has huge smiles too!

Much like the rest of your wedding, your choice of music should be all yours.

Don’t be afraid to be a little bit different, after all, there is a good chance that plenty of your friends will love the same music as you, and they will definitely enjoy your personal choices!
