25 Unexpected Wedding Processional Songs That Will Delight You

Songs you can walk, run or dance down the aisle to

I love wedding processional songs. I always think they’re such a fun part of the ceremony, especially when the music is on point. The processional song is the introduction: it sets the tone for your ceremony. I’ve even known couples who have spent months deliberating what sixty second portion of a song is going to be played. That said, I don’t want you to have to spend long searching (unless you really want to).

With this in mind, we’ve collected a whole bunch of wedding processional songs that covers a spectrum of styles and tastes that you can walk, run, or dance down the aisle to.

I think a lot of modern music works excellently for a processional (especially when the song has a beautiful and/or super fun intro or chorus, as the ones listed below do), but I know plenty of people are looking for a classical song that hasn’t been played out (enter the Planets series by Gustav Holst).
