Tips and Advice

Get your tissues ready!

A wedding is full of emotionally charged moments. No one expects to avoid shedding a tear or in some cases, sobbing uncontrollably. Hands down, the bride’s entrance to meet her soon to be spouse at the altar, triggers the waterworks the fastest. Let’s see how we can pick the right sound to accompany such an incredible moment! What song will you walk down the aisle to?

How to pick the tune?

With the inundation of music access that we have all around us, it may not be as easy for all as for some. We all have songs that pull at our heartstrings. Some even that we’ve associated with our significant others and memories we’ve shared or feelings that we have. Go with your instinct. Spend some time listening to the favorites among you and do a little research to see if any lyrics spark the feels you want to convey.

Something a little different:

  • “First Day Of My Life” by Bright Eyes
  • “Better Together” by Us The Duo
  • “Flightless Bird, American Mouth” by Iron & Wine
  • “Higher Love” by James Vincent McMorrow
  • “Beneath Your Beautiful” by Labrinth feat. Emeli Sande
  • “The One” by Kodaline
  • “Unchained Melody” by Lykke Li
  • “I Choose You” by Sara Bareilles
  • “Somewhere Only We Know” by Lily Allen
  • “Can’t Help Falling in Love” by Kina Grannis

Potentially, you may consider supplying each guest with a pack of tissues. This is one of the best moments of your lives. The heightened emotions in the room will stamp this memory in everyone’s minds. There’s plenty of options in all music genres, but we know you’ll find the right track to amplify all you feel for each other. Don’t shy away from being unique with your choice of song when you plan your walk down the aisle.
