Wedding Procession Music Ideas

Nicole and John Celebrate after first kiss  

I have seen a lot of fun and unique wedding processionals in the nearly 200 weddings I've attended. Some of the most memorable include one that used the song off my old website and another that used the Star Wars theme! It was pretty cute them kissing to that. I recently stubled across a blog post on and I thought I would share their list here. Their website has lots of ideas for wedding music. Definately go check it out.

And, in saying that, I want to give a shout out to my favorite DJ's... Chris, Jer, and Jason. These guys know their stuff. Call them if you don't have a DJ yet. Be sure to tell them I sent ya.

There's absolutely nothing wrong with the Bridal March or Trumpet Voluntary, but here's the list of contemporary processional song ideas in case you want to shake it up a little.


Today I have some fantastic processional songs for your lovely bridesmaids (and strapping groomsmen, if you so choose) to saunter down the aisle to. If you are more the classical type, check out some options here. But if you plan to use more contemporary music in your ceremony, these songs are for you.
