“As soon as the doors opened and the music began to play, I whispered to my brother, “I’m about to cry.” It was in that moment that I fully realized my chosen bridal entrance song was not only a declaration of my personal commitment to my soon-to-be husband and marriage, but it was a true reflection of who I desired and professed to be as a Christian woman.” -Marva
I’m sure you will agree, the bride’s entry is one of the most highly anticipated moments of a wedding. It is a visually stunning moment that signifies the beginning of the wedding ceremony. It is a significant and emotional moment when the bride is revealed in all her beauty. The guests are eager to lay eyes on her bridal gown,
…and nowadays, eagerly await to hear her entrance song.
Long gone are the days of the traditional “Here Comes the Bride” as the sole option for the bride’s entry. Many couples are choosing songs that hold personal significance or reflect their unique style, taste, or personality. The song choice sets the tone and enhances the overall theme and atmosphere of the wedding ceremony. The right song can create a sense of anticipation, romance, and emotion, making the moment even more special.
By now you have probably guessed that I did NOT choose “Here Comes the Bride”! The song that carried me down the aisle 37 years ago was “God’s Woman” by Brenda Nicholas,
…and I would choose it again and again.
4 Tips to Help you Choose the Perfect Song
#1 Reflect on the Mood
Consider the overall atmosphere you want to create. Do you envision a romantic, traditional, or modern wedding? The song should align with the desired ambiance.
#2 Personal Connection
Choose a song that holds special meaning for you as a couple. It could be a song that reminds you of your relationship or has sentimental value.
#3 Lyrics and Message
Pay attention to the lyrics and ensure they convey the right emotions and sentiments. Look for lyrics that resonate with your love story or express your feelings.
#4 Tempo and Style
Consider the tempo and style of the song. If you want a grand entrance, opt for a powerful and uplifting song. For a more intimate and emotional moment, choose a slower and softer melody.
Remember, the most important aspect when choosing your bridal entrance song is that it speaks to you as a couple and creates a memorable moment for you and your guests.
