Symbolism in music might be just what you need for your wedding ceremony! Rather than playing the traditional wedding march, use songs with meaningful lyrics. Combine that with the perfect timing and you’ll be sure to send shivers down the spines of all your guests.
An example of using the perfect timing can be found in the song A Thousand Years by Christina Perri. This ballad is perfect to play in place of a wedding march.
Just picture it: Your guests are seated, and the wedding party begins to walk down the aisle as the music plays. Your flower girl scatters rose petals down the aisle. Bridesmaids beam as they carry small bouquets. Groomsmen look stately as they take their place next to the groom.
Finally, it’s the bride’s turn to walk down the aisle. The doors open and you approach the aisle just as the following lyrics play:
I have died every day waiting for you Darling, don’t be afraid I have loved you for a thousand years I’ll love you for a thousand more
Goosebumps form on guest’s arms and a shiver goes down the groom’s spine as he watches you continue down the aisle. He beams as your eyes meet. Guests sigh as their hearts swell. The bride and groom look radiant and full of hope for their future together. Then, the song picks up with the following lyrics:
And all along I believed I would find you Time has brought your heart to me I have loved you for a thousand years I’ll love you for a thousand more
The song swells, creating the perfect moment where the bride and groom stand face to face, seeing each other for the first time that day. Cameras click and grandparents sigh, dabbing their wet eyes with white handkerchiefs as the ceremony begins.
