Music to walk down the aisle to can be daunting.
The first dance for the bridal couple is usually a piece of music or song that takes them back to when they first met “our song” so becomes a no brainer.
But the music you, the bride chooses when you walk down the aisle needs more thought. Maybe “our song” could be suitable?
But what if not?
Traditional you`ll need to choose three pieces of music your:
Processional piece of music for your grand entrance. Think of it as a statement as you walk down the aisle with the person giving you away.
Recessional music piece can be moderately upbeat to entertain your guests while you sign the register.
The final piece for you walking away as bride & groom could also be a reflection of you as a couple.
There are no rules. There are traditional pieces, but it’s your choice so don`t feel you have to go with something just because!
Quartets are very popular or soloist but a CD or play list on your phone is just a good.
Here are a few examples of traditional and modern songs from Silverlady wedding cars. We hope you like our choices and wish you fun in choosing which is what is should be.
