Instrumental Bridal Party Processional Songs
Sometimes, as the old song says, “you say it best when you say nothing at all.” If you’re looking for a more traditional sound, these instrumental classics will lend the perfect atmosphere for your bridal party processional (while still saving some drama for the bride’s big moment).
33. Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring
This is a classic(al) song that lends a light, romantic atmosphere to any event.
34. Bittersweet Symphony – Vitamin String Quartet
The original version is beautiful, but the lyrics don’t exactly lend themselves to a wedding ceremony. This is where Vitamin String Quartet can step in and save the day.
35. Canon in D – Pachelbel
Canon in D is a perennial favorite among bridal party processional songs. It’s familiar and beautiful, but doesn’t sound somber.
36. Stand By Me – Manuel Granada
The same song you know and love, but translated for a Spanish guitar.
Any of these bridal party processional songs are sure to set the right tone for your wedding ceremony, whether it’s large or intimate, quirky or traditional. While you’re creating your wedding reception playlist, don’t forget to select the ceremony music. After all, it’s the most important part of the day!
