Your wedding day is a unique day to celebrate the union between you and your loved one. And it goes without saying that most weddings have friends, family, colleagues and all other people who are important to the couple at their weddings. But one of the most important things to consider is the music. You need to know in advance what music you’ll walk down the aisle. While some people still prefer traditional songs such as Wagner’s “bridal chorus”, trends have changed. Here are a few adorable indie songs to walk down the aisle to:
Indie Songs to Walk Down the Aisle To
Love-Lana Del Rey
This song is about being young and in love. It’s pretty much what you’d expect from Lana Del Rey and it’s an effortless show of her gift for transmuting nostalgia into presence. In so many ways, this song evokes several emotions of desire and meditation.
You’ve Got the Love – Florence + The Machine
As exhilarating and as bracing as it can be, this song can work pretty well as a processional song. The song is a remix of the song titled You Got the Love by Candi Staton but Florence manages to do it so well.
I Wanna Be Yours – Arctic Monkeys
This song has been very useful in the world of romance. The song is slow and the lyrics are sad but it’s also full of desire. This was the first song the Arctic Monkeys recorded with a drum machine and it’s a perfect tune for walking down the aisle.
Sea of Love – Cat Power
Cat Power makes music that many people want to listen to. It’s sweet to the ears and she knows so well how to convey emotion in her voice. The song is powerful yet vulnerable at the same time, something you want to listen to when walking down the aisle.
All About Your Heart – Mindy Gledhill
There’s something about this song that makes you want to listen to it over and over again. This song will have you hooked. It’s beautiful and inspiring. Simply put: it’s the perfect processional song. Knowing the story makes it even more powerful.
Lifetimes – Oh Wonder
Lifetimes is a euphoric song with soothing harmonies and pounding drums. It features delicate high tones with a distinctive chorus. The repetitive line ‘doing it right’ just sums up the whole song, which makes it an ideal song for probably the most special day in your life.
Those are just some of the indie songs to walk down the aisle to. Others to consider include The Girl by City & Color, Somebody Loved by The Weepies and Yours Forever by Generationals, among others. Today, the idea of a traditional bride and groom wedding is far gone. Gone are the days when you would attend a wedding and hear the same songs that have for decades been at the top of the list for wedding songs. Times are changing and it’s not surprising for people to express their personalities in their choice of songs.
