20 unique songs for one of the most special times in your life

The Best Songs for Walking Down the Aisle

17 11 22

At Hey Jack, we love music and understand it can be impossible to narrow it down to one special song that will last a lifetime – so we’ve put together a guide to help you select the best tune for walking down the aisle to your future husband or wife.

It’s the moment that dreams are made of, walking down the aisle to marry the love of your life. And what can make this moment in time more special? The right choice of music, of course. The hard part is finding a song representing your love as a couple and providing the right atmosphere for your big moment.

No pressure but the song you walk down the aisle to will forever remind you of your wedding day; it’s the song you will sing to your kids and your kids’ kids, so it needs to be a timeless piece.


What to Consider


Step one; you should determine the pace of your wedding aisle song. Here it’s essential to select the right rhythm for the bride or groom’s big walk, as you will most likely match your steps to the beat of the music. So, if you want to make your walk feel longer, choose a slow song and a faster-paced tune if you are ready to race down the aisle.

We recommend practising the timing of your walk with your top song contenders before the day to help you find your perfect pace. This will also make you more comfortable and confident with your choice on the big day.

Step two; you’ve decided your pace. Now it’s time to determine if you’ll have a performer singing you down the aisle or be playing your song from a digital recording. Here at Hey Jack, we believe having a live performer or band is the way to go.

A talented singer or band can inject a unique sound that adds to your perfect atmosphere and makes the whole experience special. So, if you agree that a live performer is best, you should search for a band that can ace your chosen pace. A great way to do this is to browse our website, look through the carefully selected and talented bands, soloists and duo act’s, and watch and listen to their performance videos.

The Song

 Step three; it’s finally time to choose THE song. You know your pace and which performer/band you are interested in. Now you need to narrow down that song list. Our vast inventory of wedding performers specialise in different songs ranging from fan favourite to various hidden gems. A fantastic way to explore the songs our singers have mastered is through their set list featured on our website.

In these lists, you’ll find melodies that have proven to be perfect for all the moments throughout many weddings, including some super special songs that have shown they deserve the title of Your Aisle Song. Now by the slight chance the music of your dreams doesn’t feature on your fave band’s set list, fear not, as all our acts are so committed to making your wedding perfect, they will be happy to master you and your partner’s special song.
