Traditionally, wedding ceremonies are associated with classics like the “Wedding March” and “Here Comes the Bride.” And while those songs reliably trigger the swell of emotion you’re probably after on your wedding day, there are plenty of creative alternatives that evoke the same emotional response while also reflecting your unique personality.


Consider brainstorming alternative songs for your processional, making your grand entrance to something that speaks to who you and your partner are as a couple. You might choose something super sappy to get the tears flowing, or pick something more upbeat and celebratory. If you’re hiring live music, the band may have ideas; if you’re playing a recorded song, there’s almost no limit to the possibilities.


The blog XO Jane recommends “Next to Paradise” by Iron & Wine, and “Do You Realize” by the Flaming Lips. Modern Wedding recommends “Flowers in Your Hair” by the Lumineers and “Home” by Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes. The blog RockNRoll Bride branches out even further, with suggestions for rock songs like “White Wedding” by Billy Idol and “These Dreams” by Heart.


Ultimately, your wedding should reflect your personality, whether you choose a traditional route or not.
