For Your Walk Down the Aisle


As a wedding planner, I have become a huge fan of Kleenex. Throughout each wedding, I gain a bond between each of my couples. Once the bridal party has made their way down the aisle, and it is just me, the bride, and her father waiting anxiously for the song change, I see the excitement fill her eyes. While keeping the makeup put, I dab her glowing smile and I send her off down the aisle. While standing in the back, I always have to catch a glimpse of the groom’s face. Oh my, that moment that he sees his bride gets the entire congregation captured in their moment of happily ever after.

However, as with many moments in life, music is what creates the connection. The song you walk down the aisle to will stick with you for years to come! While planning many weddings, I have heard multiple processional songs, and every time the butterflies still stay and the love is always in the air. Perhaps, you have known your processional song for years, but many brides do not have that part figured out in its entirety. For those of you that are in panic mode right now, I have taken the most popular processional songs and created you a cheat sheet! Take a peak and then let us know what song you are going to use. We cannot wait to hear it at your wedding!
