Wedding Song Selections, Must Haves & Playlists

Selecting the songs that will be played for the various parts of your wedding day can be fun but feel a bit overwhelming at times. I always recommend that you choose songs that feel personal to you both as a couple. Feel free to use the songs below to help your planning!

The Wedding Procession Song:
This song will play while the wedding party, officiant, parent, and grandparents walk down the aisle. In other words, this is the song that signals to all of your guests that the ceremony has started and that it times to settle into their seats. A few of my favorites songs for the Processional songs are:
-You & Me – Dave Matthews Band
-Best Day of My Life – Vitamin String Quartet
-Here Comes the Sun – The Beatles

The Aisle Song:
This song will play while one partner walks down the aisle, basically the song that will cue all the tears:) A few of my favorite songs for this moment are:
-From the Ground Up – Dan & Shay
-Let it Be Me – Ray LaMontagne
-Better Than Love – Griffin House

The Wedding Recessional Song :
This song will play when everyone (couple and wedding party) walks down the aisle after the couple has said ‘I do.’ A few of my favorite songs for the Recessional are:
