Walking down the aisle is one of the most special parts of the wedding day. Expect a few tears as your partner sees you for the first time in your dress and having your Dad by your side only adds to the emotion.

The bride’s entrance is the real start to the wedding day. While you’ll have picked prelude songs while your guests arrive, and processional music as your bridesmaids walk down ahead of you, the moment everyone is waiting for is your arrival. All eyes on you can be quite scary, and having wedding songs or music that you really love can be comforting – as well as help you set the pace for your walk!

How to Choose Your Bridal Entrance Song

Normally couples decide together the bridal entrance song together. There’s a couple of key things to think about.

Firstly, the pace: you don’t want something really fast as you want to walk at a slightly slower than normal pace. If your chosen song is a little too up-tempo, see if there’s a slowed-down acoustic version available. Secondly, decide whether you want a piece of classical music, a song with lyrics or an instrumental version of a song. You’ll need to work out when you want the music to fade (if it’s not a live band) so time your walk to avoid arriving at the front mid-verse or crescendo.

If you’d rather have the song you walk down to be a surprise, that can be a great idea. We know one bride who chose an instrumental version of the Jurassic Park theme tune as it was her husband’s favourite film! Your guests will love to see your partner’s reaction, and it’ll be a great shot for your photographer to capture.
