Processional Wedding Ceremony Songs
We have created a list of our favorite best instrumental songs for weddings. Instrumental songs are songs sung without lyrics or verbiage. Instrumental songs can be used during events in the wedding ceremony such as the processional, recessional, unity candle lighting , and more. Instrumental songs can also be played during a wedding reception including during the cocktail and dinner hours , cake cutting , grand entrance or introductions , and more.
A processional song is the music that you and your wedding party will walk down the aisle to — you can have one song for everyone, or choose a separate song for your grand entrance. At the end of the ceremony, you and your new husband leave the venue to your recessional music, which tends to be more upbeat than the processional. Listen and enjoy as we present our pick of some of the best wedding music ideas. Often known as Here Comes The Bride , this piece of classical music is the traditional choice for the procession of the bride, and is often played on an organ. Another very popular choice with brides. This gorgeous piece of music sounds beautiful played by a traditional quartet, but we also love this version by Per-Olov Kindgren on classical guitar. Why not get the best of both worlds with an instrumental cover of one of your favourite songs?
