Are you a soon to be bride and trying to pick out the perfect song for you to walk down the aisle to?

Since this can be a tricky thing to choose, let us help you with some suggestions based on hundreds of ceremonies we have witnessed and been a part of.

If you always thought that you would walk down the aisle with to the traditional "Here Comes The Bride." you can still do so, but times have changed and although many people still use the wedding march classic, others have taken it upon themselves to personalize and choose a non traditional song instead.

Perhaps you adore the song, "A Thousand Years" By Christina Perri. In recent years this seems to be an extremely popular song for brides and a perfect fit. Maybe you have a song that is considered to be an "our song" shared with your husband or bride to be. Or, are you known for your personality? For non-traditional clients, there's no rule that says you can't enter to a Metallica or the Star Wars theme song! It mostly reflects your personality and you'll never make a bad choice if you go with your heart.
