Of course, there are two sides to every coin, and there are some songs that, while popular, are not the best fit for a wedding. Make sure that when you choose your song, you avoid break-up songs, songs about heartbreak, or songs that take a more dour view of marriage. Keep it light and happy.
Wedding processionals are personal to every couple, and the song you choose for yours — be it traditional or non-traditional — will be perfect. Whatever song you choose, you will end up in the same place; next to your partner ready to take your vows. So don’t be nervous! It’s your big day, so be sure to smile, stand up straight, and make that walk confidently. Remember, everyone is there to celebrate your marriage and the joy it will bring you.
