This is the biggest moment of your life, you step out and make eye contact with the love of your life and all eyes are on you. Your processional song will set the tone for your whole ceremony right up until the big “I Do”. Staying classic you can always stick with “Canon in D Major”, or here is thirteen modern picks recommended by our award winning DJ at MAS Entertainment Sound and Light that is sure to not leave a dry eye in the house.
“First Day Of My Life” by Bright Eyes
This song’s sweet and catchy beat is ideal for couples wanting a more modern processional song. The lyric “yours is the first face that I saw” is perfect for when you and your S.O. first lock eyes during the processional.
“Can’t Help Falling in Love” by Haley Reinhart
Haley’s vocals of this classic Elvis Presley song makes our hearts flutter. It is a perfect song choice as you and your S.O. start your new lives together.
“Fix You” By Boyce Avenue
Fans of this Coldplay song will love this rendition as well. The cover is beautifully done with Tyler and Boyce’s vocals, an acoustic and electric guitar and even some percussion.
“Better Together” by Us The Duo
A Jack Johnson cover, this sweet song is perfect for showing how it really is always better when you and your S.O. are together.
“Here Comes The Sun” by Colbie Caillat
A timeless classic by The Beatles, this happy song works as a lovely instrumental too. The violins and piano will give everyone goosebumps.
“Higher Love” by James Vincent McMorrow
If you love Steve Winwood’s upbeat song, definitely take a listen to this acoustic version. With just the vocals and a soft piano, it’ll be hard not to reach for a tissue.
“Beneath Your Beautiful” by Labrinth feat. Emeli Sande
This pop song makes us swoon. Not only is it a duet, but the lyrics and beat of this tune are ideal for a couple wanting something more modern, but still emotional.
“All of Me” by John Legend
This song has been a favorite first dance tune for a while now, but it also makes a fantastic wedding ceremony song. You can choose to have it played with the lyrics or as an instrumental, if you prefer.
“Make You Feel My Love” by Adele
This modern wedding processional song is sure to bring a tear (or many!) to your guests’ eyes. We particularly love this song for a couple who has overcome adversity in their relationship.
“God Gave Me You” by Blake Shelton
Country music is having a moment at weddings right now. If you’d like country music to be a theme throughout your big day, this is a lovely choice for a wedding processional song.
“She Is Love” by Parachute
We love the opening of this processional song. This tune can be covered easily or played through speakers and will still evoke all the emotions as a modern processional song.
“Unchained Melody” by Lykke Li
If you're looking for an updated version of the classic wedding processional song by the Righteous Brothers, ultra-romantic cover definitely gives us all the feels. It's sure to make hearts skip a beat as you enter your ceremony.
“Over the Rainbow” by Israel Kamakawiwo'ole
We adore this lighthearted cover, which makes an ideal wedding ceremony song. Not only is it soothing, but it’s perfect for a summer or tropical destination wedding.
All eyes are on you, your soon to be husband is looking on in awe and with eyes filled with love. Make this a song to match the feel of such an important moment. If none of the songs above connect with you, reach out to your DJ at MAS Entertainment Sound and Light to make this moment perfect.
