You can also include instrumental versions of your favorite songs or even tracks that hold sentimental value.
Walking Down the Aisle: The processional music accompanies the entrance of the wedding party and, most importantly, the bride. Choose a melody that resonates with you and reflects the emotions of the moment. Choose songs that empower your entrance so that people will always remember it when they hear that song again years after the wedding.
