▷ 🥇 Top 10 Modern Processional Songs

The procession, or walking down the aisle, is such an important part of the wedding day, and the music that is played should feel special, romantic, emotional, and dramatic all rolled into one. There are several classic selections for the procession, including Pachelbel’s “Canon in D,” Wagner’s “Bridal Chorus,” and Clarke’s “Trumpet Voluntary,” but you can also choose a more modern song to play as you walk down the aisle.

Here are some of our more contemporary processional favorites.

“Ave Maria” by Beyonce

Song preview “

She got lost in many different ways.
Out in the dark without a guide

I know the cost of losing a hand

I never thought the grace of God was so high

I found heaven on earth

You were the last, the first.
And so here is this voice inside

Ave Maria

“Feels Like Home” by Chantal Kreviazuk

Song preview “

Something in your eyes makes me want to lose myself.
It makes me want to lose myself, in your arms.
There is something in your voice that makes my heart beat fast.
I hope this feeling lasts the rest of my life

If you only knew how lonely my life has been.
And how long have I been so lonely.
And if you knew how I wanted someone to accompany me.
And change my life the way you have.

“Make You Feel My Love” by Bob Dylan

Song preview “

When the rain blows on your face

And the whole world is in your case.
I could offer you a warm hug.
To make you feel My Love

When the evening shadows and the stars appear

And there is no one there to dry your tears.
I could hold you for a million years.
To make you feel My Love

I know you haven’t made up your mind yet.
But I would never hurt you.
I’ve known it from the moment we met.
There is no doubt in my mind where you belong.

“A Thousand Years” by Christina Perri

Song preview “

Rapid heartbeat

Colors and promises

How to be brave

How can I love when I’m afraid of falling

But seeing you alone
All my doubt suddenly disappears somehow

One step closer

I’ve died every day waiting you

My dear, fear not, I have loved you.
For a thousand years

I’ll love you for a thousand more

“Bless the Broken Road” by Rascal Flatts

Song preview “

I went out on a narrow road many years ago

Hoping to find true love along the broken road

But I got lost a couple of times.
I wiped my forehead and kept pushing through

I couldn’t see how all the signs were pointing directly at you.

“In my life” by the Beatles

Song preview “

There are places that I will remember

All my life though some have changed

Some forever not for good

Some are gone and some remain

All these places have their moments

With lovers and friends I can still remember

Some are dead and some live

In my life I have loved you all

“Over the Rainbow” by Israel Kamakawiwo ole

Song preview “

Somewhere over the rainbow high above

And the dreams that you dreamed of

Once in a lullaby.

Oh somewhere over the rainbow

the blue birds fly, and the dreams you dreamed of,

Dreams come true.

“A Tape in the Sky” by Stevie Wonder

Song preview “

Oh so long for tonight that I prayed

May a star guide you on my way
To share with me this special day

Where a ribbon in the sky for our love.

If you allow me, I can touch your hand

And if you allow me one more time

So that you understand it too

There is a ribbon in the sky for our love.

“First day of my life” by Bright Eyes

Song preview “

This is the first day of my life

I swear I was born right at the entrance.
I went out in the rain all of a sudden everything changed

They are spreading blankets on the beach.

Yours is the first face I saw.
I think I was blind before I met you.
Now I don’t know where I am

I don’t know where i’ve been

But I know where I want to go

“I Do” by Colbie Caillat

Song preview “

It’s always been about me, about me, and about myself.
I thought that relationships were just a waste of time.
I never wanted to be the other half of anyone.
I was happy saying I had a love that wouldn’t last

That was the only way I knew until I met you
