Top Wedding Songs of All Time!
Who could possibly decide what style the top wedding songs would be, let alone which make the list? Here are some of our top song choices.
- Bridal Chorus (Here Comes The Bride) – tender piano styling, popular since 1858 wedding of Victoria to Prince Frederick William of Prussia
- Joyful Joyful We Adore Thee (Ode To Joy) – Finale from Beethoven’s 9th Symphony
- Pachelbel’s Canon in D Major – arguably one of the top 3 favorites songs of all time and immensely popular over the last few decades
- Wedding March Recessional (Mendelssohn) – Most famous of all wedding recessional songs
- Trumpet Voluntary in D (The King of Denmark’s March) – Jeremiah Clarke
- Ave Maria – with multiple versions both lyrically and musically, this might be the most well known religious song of all time
- Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring by J.S. Bach. Some are familiar with this as an instrumental, but originally a lovely choral number.
- Vivaldi – Spring from the 4 Seasons a couple of the movements are heard quite often at weddings.
- Can’t Help Falling In Love With You - transcendent love song recorded by Elvis & many others

In the process of researching for this post, we looked at many different lists of the top wedding songs. I liked one title that said not “the greatest” but “of the greatest” at least acknowledging that their list might possibly not be THE TRUTH.
