Classic Romance: Timeless Wedding Aisle Songs

1. Somewhere Over the Rainbow" by Israel Kamakawiwo'ole

This song embodies hopes and dreams, suggesting a future filled with possibilities and happiness.

Lyrics: "Somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue, and the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true.”

2. "Fields of Gold" by Sting

A song about enduring love, it paints a picture of a couple growing old together in peace and love. That said, you may want to ensure you're down the aisle by 1:40, as beyond this point the song shifts to reflecting on memories of a beloved who has passed away. While deeply touching, it might be a little too sombre for a wedding procession.

Lyrics: “Will you stay with me, will you be my love among the fields of barley?"

3. "She" by Elvis Costello

A song that reflects on the enigmatic nature of a loved one and the deep affection felt for them. Or a great pick if you want to re-enact a famous scene from “Notting Hill”. Picture this: as the song plays, you could recreate that iconic dialogue, where one partner asks, "{Insert Name}, how long do you plan to stay married to {Insert Name}?" and the response comes, heartfelt and clear, "Indefinitely." 

Lyrics: "She may be the love that cannot hope to last, may come to me from shadows of the past."

4. "God Only Knows" by The Beach Boys

A beautiful expression of unconditional and eternal love, in a way that makes your heart sink and then swell with joy again. So if you don’t mind the emotional rollercoaster it’s a great song. 

Lyrics: "God only knows what I'd be without you."

5. "The Book of Love" by Peter Gabriel

A song about the complexities and simplicity of love, capturing the essence of a lifelong partnership. 

Lyrics: "The book of love is long and boring, and written very long ago. It's full of flowers and heart-shaped boxes, and things we're all too young to know."

Modern Love: Contemporary Wedding Songs to Walk Down the Aisle

6. "XO" by John Mayer

As far as covers go, this is a great one in my opinion. The song itself is about finding love that's like a light in the darkness, offering hope and companionship and John Mayer's cover makes you feel like you're in a movie. For the purest you could go with Beyonce’s original rendition, which is equally as beautiful. 

Lyrics: "In the darkest night hour, I'll search through the crowd, your face is all that I see."

7. "Falling Slowly" by Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova

If you plan to have a live band or solo singer, this could be a beautiful song to walk down the aisle to. This song about the transformative power of love and the deep connection it brings along with an acoustic delivery, will have everyone passing round the tissues. 

Lyrics: "Falling slowly, eyes that know me, and I can't go back."

8. "Turning Page" by Sleeping At Last

This is about the profound and life-altering experience of falling in love. This one carry’s all the feels. It gives me so many feels that i’m even going to leave the YouTube link here

Lyrics: "I've waited a hundred years, but I'd wait a million more for you."

9. "Yellow" by Coldplay

A song about devotion and being willing to do anything for the person you love.

Lyrics: "Look at the stars, look how they shine for you, and everything you do."

10. "Photograph" by Ed Sheeran

I feel like most of Ed Sheeran’s discography could make this list but we will show restraint and pick one. “Photograph” reflects on preserving memories and the enduring nature of love.

Lyrics: "We keep this love in a photograph, we make these memories for ourselves."

Acoustic Serenity: Gentle Melodies for Your Wedding Entrance

11. "I'm Kissing You" by Des'ree

“I’m Kissing You” is about the intense feelings experienced when with the person you love. I’ve read that this was based on her own experience and that really comes through as she sings this ballad. 

Lyrics: "I'm kissing you, oh. I'm kissing you, oh. Touch me deep, pure and true."

Another song about unconditional love and acceptance. 

Lyrics: "And I don't believe in the existence of angels, but looking at you I wonder if that's true."

14. "Latch" (Acoustic) by Sam Smith

This version expresses the vulnerability and beauty of falling in love. I would recommend you time the bride's entrance for 1:18, it’s the perfect moment. 0:46 - 2:21 is the most replayed part of the song according to YouTube and you only need to listen to it to hear why.

A testament to perseverance and commitment in love. This song has a nice rustic feel to it. So if you’re having a barn inspired wedding this might be a good song to go with your theme. 

Lyrics: "I won't give up on us, even if the skies get rough, I'm giving you all my love, I'm still looking up."

17. "Kiss Me" by Sixpence None the Richer

Another movie classic, and what person wouldn’t want their significant other to look at them the way Zack Siler looked at Laney Boggs as she walked down the stairs. 

Lyrics: "Kiss me beneath the milky twilight, lead me out on the moonlit floor."

18. "Better Together" by Jack Johnson

This song celebrates the idea that life is better when shared with the one you love. This song has a light, happy, and upbeat rhythm, making it an excellent choice if you're looking for something that brings a sense of joy rather than a deeply emotive melody. 

Lyrics: "It's always better when we're together, yeah, we'll look at the stars when we're together."

19. "Speechless" by Dan + Shay

This song beautifully captures the essence of being completely captivated and awestruck by one's partner. Whether by design or serendipity, it vividly portrays a moment where the sight of their significant other, in a stunning dress, renders them utterly speechless.
