As an experienced Colorado wedding DJ, and professional wedding MC (Master of Ceremonies), brides continually ask me, “Matt, what are 10 unique wedding ceremony songs I can walk down the aisle to for my ceremony that aren’t overplayed at every other wedding? I want something different. Something fresh.”
So, that got me thinking about all styles of weddings and 10 unique wedding ceremony songs for all types of weddings: whether you are planning an elegant, winter wedding in Vail, a lush spring ceremony in Fort Collins filled with lots of color; a large family reunion country style themed wedding in Loveland; or a gorgeous fall wedding in Estes Park, what songs would I pick?
Here’s my personal top ten unique wedding ceremony songs to walk down the aisle to:
Modern and Fun Songs
* White Dress – Ben Rector
A Fun, modern and upbeat song with a great meaning in the song
* I Choose You – Sara Bareiles
This perfect song is a mash up of R&B with a flair of fun
* First Day of My Life – Bright Eyes
With a great voice, and a guitar to compliment the hint of an alternative rock sound.
* Let’s Just Fall In Love – Jason Castro
A rock song, with an upbeat tempo complimented by fantastic words to match the upcoming ceremony.
* How Long Will I Love You – Ellie Goulding
A beautiful, soulful voice, gently enhances this song it’s a fun, upbeat tempo
* Saeglopur – Sigur Ross (first 1:54 seconds only)
A fantastic instrumental with a soft, yet modern edge
* A Song For Rome (piano) – Brian Crain
Looking for a soft, instrumental that whispers elegance and love? This is it.
* Here Comes the Sun – Beatles
What more can I say? It’s the Beatles at their best.
* #34 – Dave Matthews
A gentle hint of instrumental with a jazzy, modern feel
* Two In a Million – Chris LeDoux
Perfect words for classic country song and a soft, country romance.
Hopefully that gives you a few ideas to think about that are out of the box. Our advice? Instead of finding the same songs as everyone else, let’s find a wedding ceremony song for your walk down the aisle that is fun, different and that reflects you and your personality.
