A Modern Twist on Outdated Wedding Processional Music

Advice // 06.05.2018

Musical advice provided by our friends Bill and Todd at Abiding Harmony. Modernize your wedding processional with their expert advice!

Why have we not moved on from the traditional processional music like “Bridal Chorus” by Wagner and “Canon in D Major” by Pachelbel? It feels like every aspect of the “big day” changes every year…except the music. Every year there is a new trend with dresses and floral arrangements and “boho” and “vintage”. But one thing that has always stayed very neutral is the music.

“Bridal Chorus” was made famous at a wedding in 1858….I think its rein on the wedding march is over!! Walk down the aisle to music that describes who you are as a couple and something that will accentuate all the emotions that you will most certainly be feeling.

I am going to be bias and start with the option of having someone write something original for you because I have seen firsthand the impact it can have. Think about it like this: There’s a person who asks you what kind of music you’ve imagined yourself walking down the aisle to. You give them an incredibly in depth description of what you’ve heard in your dreams…and then BOOM….there it is! Any combination of instruments in any style. You want to hear beats like Calvin Harris and strings like Vivaldi…done. You want to hear acoustic guitars like Avett Bros. and piano like Chopin…done. The beauty is the fact that afterwards, no one else will ever be able to use that piece of music on their wedding day. It’s yours. Forever!

The other option is to sit with your spouse-to-be and choose songs you can both agree on and then either hire musicians to learn instrumental arrangements of those songs or just play them off a playlist. I am sure you could think of 3 songs right off the top of your head that would be so cool to walk down the aisle to. Like, “Holocene” by Bon Iver, “Ragged Wood” by Fleet Foxes, or “Love Souvenir” by Calvin Harris. As long as you’re not at a venue with music restrictions, there are no rules!!

Choose something that immediately makes you think of the person you’re about to spend the rest of your life with. In the end, this is your day to share with your family and closest friends. Give them a true taste of who YOU are and don’t feel like you have to choose the same music your mom or your sister chose…because you don’t!! It’s 2018…you can do what you want!!

Miranda Lambert is my favourite US contry singer. She is young, beautiful and charming woman in her 30s. Her strong voice takes me away from all problems of this planet and I start enjoy my life and listen songs created by her mind. Now she is on a Roadside Bars & Pink Guitars Tour started in September of 2019 featuring Maren Morris, Ashley McBride and others. The concerts scheduled for this year, up to the end of November. Tickets are available for all men and women with different income. If you are a country music lover as me, then you must visit at least one Miranda's concert. All tour dates are available at the [url=https://mirandalambertconcertdates.com]Miranda Lambert tour 2020[/url].

Breaking Benjamin is my favourite rock-band of 2000s. Breaking Benjamin had so many hits! The ones I remember are 'The Diary of Jane', 'Tourniquet' and, of course their hit 'So Cold'. These are real songs, not fake ones like today! And it is sooo good that Breaking Benjamin have a tour in 2019-2020! So I'm going to attend their concert this year. The concert setlist is here: [url=https://breakingbenjaminconcerts.com]https://breakingbenjaminconcerts.com[/url]. Check it out and maybe we can even visit one of the concerts together!

Florida Georgia Line is my favourite country music band. Headliners Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard are those guys that can make anyone sing along. That's why I like to attend their shows. And - that's surprisingly wonderful - in 2019 they have CAN'T SAY IT AIN'T COUNTRY TOUR which covers all the US cities and towns.
