8 Unique Wedding Songs instead of “Here Comes the Bride”

Wedding Song Ideas that will make you say, "I haven't heard that in a while, but I totally LOVE that song!" - from Austin-area wedding venue - AngelSpringsEventsCenter.com


We’ve all heard “Here Comes the Bride” (otherwise known as “Bridal Chorus” by Wagner). It’s a great choice for a traditional wedding song, but if you want something more unique…maybe with a “I haven’t heard that song in a while but I totally LOVE that song” quality we have some ideas.

A non-traditional wedding song is a great choice to:

  • send a special message to each other as you walk down the aisle
  • portray your emotions to your guests
  • show your unique personalities
  • making your wedding that much more fun!
  • capturing a moment that defined your relationship
  • making a promise via the lyrics

Non-Traditional Wedding Song Choices:

  1. Truly, Madly, Deeply – Savage Garden
  2. Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You – Lauryn Hill
  3. Marry Me – Train
  4. You’re the One That I Want – The Lennings (cover song featured on “Parenthood”)
  5. Unchained Melody – Righteous Brothers
  6. Eternal Flame – The Bangles
  7. I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing – Aerosmith
  8. The Way I Am – Ingrid Michaelson

    I walked down the aisle to my cousin singing “I could not ask for more” by Edwin McCain. It was really beautiful.

  2. I love it when couples decide to try something new for their wedding. My husband and I chose instrumental versions of songs from our favorite bands, and it turned out really cool. Back we I got married, we couldn’t afford a DJ or a live band, so we had to use an MP3 player. If I could do it again I would hire a DJ, so that we could get everyone dancing during the reception.
