Traditional wedding music lovers have been dreaming of their walk down the aisle to the joyous strains of Here Comes the Bride (also known as ‘Bridal Chorus’) since a very young age. That wedding music standard, along with Mendelssohn’s Wedding March (from A Midsummer Night’s Dream) are among the top traditional wedding song choices downloaded each week by our visitors. This page highlights the top traditional choices for each of the parts of a traditional wedding ceremony.
Dum, dum, de-dum! Here Comes the Bride is one of the most sought-after wedding music marches, but many brides and grooms ultimately choose Canon in D Major as the backdrop for their big entrance.
Depending on the length of your wedding, you may need more than one piece to serve as interlude music or to be sung by a soloist. While The Wedding Song (There Is Love) reigned as most popular in the ’70s and ’80s, inspirational favorites such as You Raise Me Up and I Can Only Imagine are quickly climbing the list today. We were somewhat surprised at the popularity of Can’t Help Falling in Love as a top choice. Elvis may have left the building, but his music still resonates.
Your hearts will be bursting with emotion as the ceremony closes, so be sure to choose a sendoff with fanfare. Here are our top traditional wedding recessional MP3 downloads:
