Songs to walk BACK UP the aisle to
Updated: Jan 14
It's a moment of great energy and joy. The moment you've been officially pronounced as husband and wife, wife and wife or husband and husband - let's face it, it doesn't matter what sex you both are, what matters is that you choose the right song to walk back down the aisle as a married couple to.
It's a song that should reflect the moment in time of your marriage and chances are everyone will remember it for a long time - along with the rest of the event.
Choose something up and bright so that it matches the energy you and your celebrant have created for the ceremony.
Here's my Top 12 songs to walk bay up the aisle to. But there's a stack more on my Spotify playlist and you'll find a link to that below.
01 Beautiful Day by U2
"You're in the mud, in the maze of her imagination/You love this town even if it doesn't ring true/You've been all over and it's been all over you/It's a beautiful day/Don't let it get away"
02 A Sky Full Of Stars by Coldplay
"I don't care, go on and tear me apart/I don't care if you do/'Cause in a sky, 'cause in a sky full of stars/I think I saw you/'Cause you're a sky, you're a sky full of stars/Such a heavenly view"
03 Somewhere Only We Know by Keane
"And if you have a minute, why don't we go/Talk about it somewhere only we know?/This could be the end of everything/So why don't we go/Somewhere only we know?"
04 Unconditionally by Katy Perry
"Unconditional, unconditionally/I will love you unconditionally/There is no fear now/Let go and just be free/I will love you unconditionally"
05 Young Blood by The Naked and Famous
"We lie beneath the stars at night/Our hands gripping each other tight/You keep my secrets hope to die/Promises, swear them to the sky"
06 Hey Ya! by OutKast
"Now don't have me break this thang down for nothin'/I want to see you on your baddest behavior/Lend me some sugar, I am your neighbor"
07 Firework by Katy Perry
"Maybe a reason why all the doors are closed/So you can open one that leads you to the perfect road/Like a lightning bolt, your heart will glow/And when it's time, you'll know"
08 I Gotta Feeling by The Black Eyed Peas
"A feeling, woohoo, that tonight's gonna be a good night/That tonight's gonna be a good night/That tonight's gonna be a good, good night"
09 Bang Bang by Jessie J, Ariana Grande, and Nicki Minaj
"Sure she got a body like an hourglass/But I can give it to you all the time/Sure she got a booty like a Cadillac/But I can send you into overdrive/You've been waiting for that"
10 Happy by Pharrell Williams
"It might seem crazy what I'm 'bout to say/Sunshine she's here, you can take a break/I'm a hot air balloon that could go to space/With the air, like I don't care baby by the way/because I'm happy"
11 Uptown Funk by Mark Ronson featuring Bruno Mars
"Stop, wait a minute/Fill my cup, put some liquor in it/Take a sip, sign a check/Julio, get the stretch"
12 Crazy in Love by Beyoncé featuring Jay-Z
"Got me looking so crazy, my baby/I'm not myself; lately I'm foolish, I don't do this/I've been playing myself; baby, I don't care/'Cause your love's got the best of me"
