5 Instrumental Wedding Songs for Every Part of Your Big Day

If you ask us, instrumental wedding songs are underrated. We’re sure you’ve heard popular songs like “Canon in D” and the “Wedding March” but if you think they’re your only options for tasteful and timeless wedding music, think again.

Whether you’re looking for classic wedding songs or instrumental music that’s both modern and sophisticated, you have a wealth of options to choose from and we’ll highlight the best ones for you

Skyline Drive Orchestra from New Jersey has picked out excellent instrumental wedding songs you can use throughout your big day. Play these timeless songs from the prelude to your vows all the way to the reception.

If any of the songs below catch your fancy, simply secure the services of a wedding band in your area to play them and feed your ceremony with the kind of excitement only great music can. Here are 5 instrumental wedding songs we love-and we’re sure you’ll love them too!

  • “Eden (Harlem)” by Nicholas Britell

An orchestra of violins and cellos make this instrumental wedding song a simple but beautiful and emotional masterpiece. Use it for your wedding procession and we wager there won’t be a single dry eye at the wedding venue!

  • “I Could Fall in Love” by Guitar Tribute Players

This acoustic guitar cover of Selena Quintanilla’s famous ballad “I Could Fall in Love” is one of the best songs you can use in any kind of wedding. It’ll be great as a processional song or first dance song-and you can easily hire a guitarist to play it live if you don’t want to use the recording.

  • “Watching Connell Play” by Stephen Rennicks

This soothing composition from the “Normal People” soundtrack begins slow and builds over time-perfect as a prelude song for setting the mood leading up to the start of your ceremony.

  • “Ordinary People” by John Legend

While we love the original version with the lyrics, this instrumental rendition of John Legend’s famous song is just as catchy. The upbeat piano will be ideal for your prelude playlist when guests are taking their seats at the ceremony or mingling around during cocktail hour.  

  • “Opening” by Craig Armstrong

Starting out with a solo violin, this song from the “Far from the Madding Crowd” soundtrack will have you entranced, particularly the marks in the song where a beautiful crescendo is reached. The track is around 4:40 minutes in length, meaning it’s long enough for your procession.

These songs are all great but you’ll need to hire professional wedding musicians and entertainers to play them lest you have average music being played at your wedding. If your wedding is in New Jersey or the New York area, hire us! the
