Church Wedding Song An Alternative to Traditional

A wedding ceremony such as one at a church can be a sweet way to tie the knot. However, some couples want to have a combination of both traditional elements and nontraditional elements at their wedding. An example of this is to have the wedding at a church using nontraditional music.

Instead of having a church wedding with traditional music such as “Canon in D” by Johann Pachelbel, consider modern songs which are church appropriate. “God Gave Me You” by Bryan White is an example of a song fit for a church wedding.

This song is perfect for a bride to walk down a long church aisle to. It describes the feeling of being blessed to have found the love of your life. “God Gave Me You” also explains the realization of one’s worth, feeling at peace with that person’s life. It’s an uplifting, warmhearted song overall.

Lastly, if this song choice does not fit your wedding style, no worries. Check out our 27 Miracles’ blog every Thursday for more wedding music ideas.

Wedding Day Music

Music plays a big part during the wedding day from processional music during the ceremony to the first dance and other reception song choices. One popular song choice for brides to walk down the aisle to is “Canon In D.” If you are wanting traditional music, then this is perfect for you. However, if you want nontraditional music for the ceremony, a song I would highly suggest is “Forever” by Ben Harper. As explained through the title, this song consists of lyrics relating to the love he has for someone and being with that person forever. It is a lovely song to walk down the aisle to, representing your walk to “forever” with your significant other. There are other great love songs by Ben Harper, but this one fits nicely as a bride processional song. Click on the link below to listen.
