It’s your big day, and you want every choice to be a beautiful expression of your coupledom and everything that makes your relationship unique and special.
So walking down the aisle to the Wedding March just isn’t going to cut it.
However, shaking it to Neiked’s ‘Sexual’ during your first dance just doesn’t seem appropriate either. Not when Granny is in the corner chatting to Aunt Judith.
Listen: Writing your wedding vows? Have you heard that ‘til death do us part is OVER? (Post continues after audio.)
We’ve rounded up the best modern wedding songs to walk down the aisle to and the perfect tunes to play as you and your partner share your first dance.
‘Ho Hey’ by The Lumineers.
“I belong with you, you belong with me, you’re my sweetheart.” Was a more simple and sweet line ever sung?
This track is perfect for your barn or bushland oasis wedding, as it suits a rustic setting to a T.
‘Bloom’ by The Paper Kites.
Walk down the aisle to this soft and dreamy melody and hear such lovely sentiments as “my world is you”. This almost acoustic tune hits just the right notes for most important 20 steps of your life.
‘Thinking Out Loud’ by Ed Sheeran.
Yes, you’ve probably seen this as a first dance a few times by now, but that’s because it is perfect. Perfect, I tell you!
If you can’t stand to have a modern wedding song you know others have chosen before, try one of Sheeran’s other love songs, like ‘Photograph’. The melody is beautiful and the sentiment of the song is just as sweet.
