Contemporary Wedding Music Choices

There’s no rule that says you need to walk down the aisle to the strains of Pachelbel’s Canon. Many brides are setting aside the traditional tunes of their parents’ or older siblings’ ceremonies and looking for more contemporary tunes that are decidedly their own.

The trend these days is to choose music that speaks to you, no matter if it’s not exactly what your guests are expecting. If you’d like to incorporate new or lesser-known older songs into your ceremony or reception, go right ahead. Follow these tips, and you’ll be well on your way to music that’s as individual and unique as you are:

  • Don’t be overly concerned about tradition or choosing “appropriate” music. Have fun representing yourselves and your love in a memorable way.
  • To give your wedding a one-of-a-kind feel, be on the lookout for original songs by musicians or songwriters many people might not have heard of.
  • Instead of using Top 40 hits, consider songs from Broadway musicals or movies.
  • Love a certain musician, but wince at the thought of having his or her most famous tune in your wedding? Choose one of their more obscure songs instead.

Here are a few nontraditional songs to consider:

The Feather Theme (Main Theme) – Forrest Gump Soundtrack
Canon in F – The O’Neill Brothers
You Are My Home – Scarlet Pimpernel Soundtrack
Born to Give My Love to You – Martina McBride
The Road That Never Ends – Jamie Lawrence
