You can really do whatever you want! It’s traditionally just instrumental, but you can do anything you like!

Often I’ve heard “The Wedding Song (There is Love)” used as a processional. It’s beautiful, but a little dated. If you’re religious, maybe something traditionally in mass anyway, like Ave Maria. God, an opera piece would be gorgeous. Think of a gorgeous soprano singing sweetly as you walk to your hubby 🙂

Either is fine. It depends on the music you’ve chosen. I chose a hymn for my processional, so it was sung.

One lovely piece of music that does have a vocal is “Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring”. “Ave Maria” is also good … there are a couple of versions of that.

At first I chose a hymn and then my music person told me instrumental is the norm so that people can focus on watching you.

If you go for a song, make it just sung by the soloist, not something for others to join.

(My Mothers are getting seated to instrumental Ave Maria and the rest of us are walking down to Canon in D)

You can do instrumental or whatever you want – it is your day! We are having a friend play the guitar for our ceremony. I gave him some songs that I would like and he has spent the past 3 months learning them!! Its just an acoustic guitar but I think it will be really beautiful and really fit with our wedding.
