Instrumental Wedding March Songs

Sometimes, as the old song goes, “you say it best when you say nothing at all.” For those who agree, here are some instrumental songs to walk down the aisle to.

Bridal March – Jonathan Cain

Don’t write this one off until you’ve heard this version! Where the original can come across as a bit “pompous,” this lilting piano version is a modern, yet beautiful, nod to tradition.

Canon in D – Pachelbel

Canon in D is a favorite, even if you’re not a fan of classical music. It’s familiar and beautiful, but doesn’t sound somber. 

Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring – Bach

Classical? More like “classic.” This song that lends a light, romantic atmosphere to any event.

Claire de Lune – Debussy

There’s only one word to describe this one: dreamy. Inspired by a French poem, Claire de Lune evokes an atmosphere of moonlight and love.

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.

Glasgow Love Theme – Craig Armstrong

You might recognize this song from the movie Love Actually, or you might just melt at its bittersweet melody. It’s a lovely choice, whether you pick a version on piano, guitar, or string quartet.

Air on the G String – Bach

This is a classic, dreamy gem that sounds perfect, whether it’s coming from a piano or a string quartet. (“G String” refers to a violin, by the way.)

Forever in Love – Kenny G

Is there anything smoother than a Kenny G song? We doubt it! Not only does the title say exactly what your hearts feel, the dreamy, lilting saxophone will set the atmosphere perfectly.

Kiss the Rain – Yiruma

This is a sweet, heartfelt piano tune that is sure to have everyone reaching for the Kleenex! (Keep some tucked away somewhere for either you or whoever walks you down the aisle.)
