Around the internet, I’ve seen many brides walk down the aisle to many different beautiful songs. Did you walk down the aisle to the traditional Wedding March (Here Comes the Bride) or a different song?
I really want to and will walk down the aisle to the Wedding March, but I’d love to incorporate pachelbel’s canon in D somewhere in the ceremony!

I’ve never seen a bride walk down the aisle to “Here Comes the Bride”
I’d say Cannon in D is probably more popular and a pretty choice if you want something more traditional.
I walked down the aisle to an instrumental cover of “Lucky” by Jason Mraz. It’s the song that was playing when my husband proposed.

I’m walking down the aisle to Rondeau by Henry Purcell. I wanted to go for something less traditional.

I’ll be walking to “Storybook Love” aka the main theme from the movie the Princess Bride.
Aside from being super cliché, the issue with Here Comes the Bride (which is actually the Bridal Chorus from the Wagnerian opera Lohengrin) is that well, it’s from an opera. So, it’s a prelude to everything after the wedding going horribly wrong…

That’s a beautiful song! And you make a really really good point! Now I’m definitely having second thoughts about using it. Now leaning more towards Pachelbel’s canon!

Pachelbel’s canon is lovely. I couldn’t use it though, because I played second violin in high school and therefore would like to resurrect Pachelbel and ram the sheet music down his throat…

We all walked ‘in’ to the theme to the movie The Comancheros, which was filmed in the area we got married. It started out slow and weddingy but pepped up very quickly, which suited us.

I am getting married in a Catholic Church and walking down to Morning Has Broken. My mom walked down the aisle to this song.

I walked in to The Piano Guys instrumental version of “A Thousand Years”. I personally can’t stand the wedding march.

- Wedding: October 2016 - Painswick Church and the Falcon Hotel
I had the wedding march because it’s the most traditional and what I had imagined since being a little girl

That was one of the hymns that was sung by our soloist, in our musical prelude. I’ve always love it.
We used “Ode to Joy,” from the final movement of Beethoven’s 9th sympthony: church organ, trumpet, violin.
I’ve read that Wagner is banned from some churches, because of his anti-semetism.

I walked to the Beatles Here Comes the Sun 😉
