Bridal Processional Songs: Classic and R&B
〰️ PRO TIP: You don’t have to play the whole song. Clip your favorite part that goes well together with your walk. Time your walk and feel the rhythm so there will be graceful synchronicity as you walk down the aisle.
〰️ PRO TIP #2: Hiring a live guitarist or acoustic band will make these love songs more “suitable” as a “walking down the aisle” song because the performers will arrange it in a way that will sync with your walk and wedding aesthetic/style.
〰️ PRO TIP #3: If you are not into hiring an acoustic band, you can easily find acoustic versions of these songs on YouTube and you can then export the audio for you to use. Important to note to check if there are copyright restrictions before using the songs and proceed according to those guidelines.
〰️ PRO TIP #4: Time your entry. If the intro is mostly piano and has no lyrics, wait until the beat drops or the lyric starts to come up until the door opens. Coordinate this with your venue or wedding planning for a more dramatic and romantic entrance.
〰️ PRO TIP #5: Think about the lyrics of the song and how it relates to you and your partner. Or maybe this is a song that both of you have always vibed with because this will make it more meaningful for both of you.
