Wedding songs are vital on wedding ceremony. It carries the best wishes for the newly couple. Anyone who has ever been to a wedding knows that there are certain songs that can't be avoided. Music can make or break a party so when it comes to your wedding — the biggest party you’ll probably ever throw — you want to get it right. Whether it's for the bride's walk down the aisle or the newlyweds' first dance together, the right music can set the tone create moods and trap memories into a tune forever.  Making a list of wedding songs is not easy as there are literally millions of songs out there. So we have just tried to make a compilation of songs that have been used by many couples. 

8 classic wedding songs:

1. Air on a G String - Johann Sebastian Bach

Air on a G String is an extremely famous and popular piece of music. A staple in many classical string quartet repertoires, its beautiful, calming, gentle, and peaceful qualities are a perfect complement to any wedding.

2. Ave Maria - Johann Sebastian Bach / Charels Gounod

This delightful piece of music was chosen by my sister as she walked down the aisle of her outdoor wedding. Its lofty, dream like melody provides a picturesque scene of tranquility.

3. Canon in D - Johann Pachelbel

This is another extremely popular piece of music played at weddings. It's an elegant piece of music with delicate simplicity, making it an ideal wedding song for the bride as she walks down the aisle.

4. Ave Verum Corpus - Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Though it may not be great for the professional, Mozart's Ave Verum Corpus makes a fantastic wedding song for the in-between parts of the wedding. Its angelic melodies and classic harmonies would easily set the tone of the ceremony.

5. "Winter" mvmt. 2 from the Four Seasons - Antonio Vivaldi

As the violin in Vivaldi's Four Seasons captures the ears of your guests, the bride will capture their eyes as she makes her way down the aisle. However, I think it would be better if the tempo of Winter's second movement was slightly slower than normal. There's no reason for the bride to rush to the alter.

6Procession of Nobles - Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov

Here's a song you don't hear at weddings. Perhaps, because it isn't widely known. TheProcession of Nobles from Rimsky-Korsakov's opera Mlada would be an unusual, but fun way to end the wedding. Its regal fanfare presents the newly married couple to the world!

7. March of the Priests from The Magic Flute - Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

"March of Priests" would make a lovely wedding song as the groomsmen and bridesmaids process to the alter prior to the bride's entrance. Its calm and stately demeanor adds a touch of sophistication and regality to the ceremony.

8. Marche troyenne, for orchestra from Les Troyens - Hector Berlioz

Here's another song you could use for your wedding as your flower girl as well as the groomsmen and bridesmaids made make their way to the sides of the alter. If you're looking to have a unique wedding, you may want to give this song a try.
