Unexpected Songs Brides Have Chosen to Walk Down the Aisle

By    |   Tuesday, 14 Jul 2015 08:03 PM

From Van Halen to Frank Sinatra, a bride's wedding march song is as much about her personality as her dress. And many brides have expressed themselves in unique ways by their choices of music to walk down the aisle.

Some classic ladies choose the regal "Trumpet Voluntary," while others prefer something more dreamy like Enya.

"Just as I appreciate a truly unique and personalized wedding, I also value music choices that reflect the couple and what they mean to each other, Stephanie Schertz wrote on the website OnceWed.com.

Among her suggestions for different flavors of brides: for the Southern girl, "Forget Me Not" by The Civil Wars; for true urbanites, "New York State of Mind" by Billy Joel, and for the bride in a destination wedding, "Constellations" by Jack Johnson, she suggests.

The website Offbeat Bride offers alternative bridal songs
in categories: classical, variations on a theme of traditional, subtle alternatives, goth and metal, pop and rock, Indie, and just plain silly.

In the latter category, suggestions include tunes from several well-known films including the “James Bond” theme, “The Pink Panther” theme, the "Mission Impossible" theme and the "Jurassic Park" theme. Less adventurous types might settle for something a bit more traditional but less known including Vivaldi's "Spring Allegro," Handel's Air from "Water Music," or Mussorgsky's "Pictures at an Exhibition: Promenade.”

Other songs topping Martha Stewart Weddings' bridal processional
list included: "Ribbon in the Sky," Stevie Wonder; "Falling in Love," The O'Neill Brothers; "All I Want Is You," Barry Louis Polisar; "I Love You," The Bees; "Only You," Joshua Radin; "Songbird," Eva Cassidy; "Do You Remember," Jack Johnson; "Heavenly Day," Patty Griffin; "Lullaby," Dixie Chicks, and "Hold You in My Arms," Ray LaMontagne.
