From your wedding ceremony prelude through the first wedding dance song and the dance music at your wedding reception, your wedding music is an important part of your wedding celebration. And how to choose your first wedding dance song is an essential part of that.

The best wedding songs and wedding music for your ceremony and reception are often hard to select – there are so many popular wedding songs and so much iconic wedding music to choose from. And as you plan for your wedding music you of course must remain mindful of your wedding music budget as it relates to your overall wedding budget. Live bands, string pieces, orchestras, singers and/or DJ’s can often be pricey.

While you want your wedding music to be pleasing to your wedding guests, you also want your wedding music to reflect the style and preferences of  you and your fiancé.

That’s where the the ultimate guide to wedding music can be a great help to you.

The music that accompanies the bride as she walks down the aisle is often traditional wedding march, but there are also other beautiful songs for your walk down the aisle

Here, from oncewed, are one author’s choices for the top 10 wedding processional songs:
In your day-to-day life, making a grand entrance probably isn’t something that crosses your mind that often. Sure, we all have friends that insist on being fashionably late, but the opportunity to have all eyes on you is generally reserved for your wedding day.Considering how special this moment is, the perfect soundtrack is an absolute must. Do you want your wedding processional song to be sunny and upbeat? Maybe a little more moody and romantic? Whichever route you choose to go, there’s a lot of pressure on this tune to set the tone for the rest of the event.It’s easy to get distracted by a song you’ve always loved or even something trendy, but I suggest you start by deciding on your ideal vibe. This way, you can focus your search to something that really makes sense with the overall plan of the day.

When picking your wedding processional song, be sure to consider tempo, lyrics and length. If you’ve got a large bridal party that all need to make it down the aisle within the allotted time of the song, you might have to rule out a few shorter options.

With that in mind, here are my top 10 picks for wedding processional songs:

1. Please, Please, Please, Let Me Get What I Want – The Smiths

2. Be Here Now – Ray LaMontagne

3. Addicted to Love – Florence + The Machine

4. Across the Universe – Rufus Wainwright

5. Bittersweet Symphony – The Verve

6. You and I – Ingrid Michaelson

7. Forget Me Not – The Civil Wars

8. Unforgettable – Nat King Cole
