Acoustic Wedding Ceremony Songs

The search for the perfect wedding song can be a tricky one, but an acoustic number to walk down the aisle to is often the answer. A quick search on YouTube or Spotify and you’ll often find an unknown artist has recorded a beautiful acoustic version of your favourite love song, even if there's nothing from the original author.

Your wedding ceremony will typically have music playing as guests arrive to be seated, the processional, the bridal entrance (or aisle walk), the signing of the register and the bridal exit. There’s a lot of music to be considered for this section of the day and it’s important to know what songs are better suited for each part. You may wish to have a meaningful classical piece for when you walk down the aisle, such as Pachelbel’s Canon in D, and then something more upbeat and lively for when you exit the church such as 'Best Day Of My Life' by American Authors or 'Good Vibrations' by The Beach Boys.
