Getting hitched? Picking a bride entry song can be tricky. You want something that's original and beautiful, meaningful yet recognisable. Well, we're here to prove that there ARE choices other than Wagner's Bridal Chorus, more commonly known as Here Comes The Bride. Not that we don't love it. But we adore these alternatives too.

1. Canon in D Major by Johann Pachelbel

Few songs are as classic as Pachelbel’s Canon in D Major. If it’s good enough for Father of the Bride, it’s good enough for us. Skip to 2.27 to hear it. We're reaching for the tissues already!

2. You Are The Best Thing by Ray LaMontagne

If you love jazz, this is a great choice for you. If you don't love jazz, we still think it's a great choice. That voice, those lyrics? We're melting.

3. The Power of Love

No one belts out a love song quite like Celine Dion. Those lyrics hit you right on the ticker don't they? The whispers in the morning...

4. Kissing You by Des'ree

The Romeo & Juliet movie of 1996 gave us the hotness of Leonardo DiCaprio AND the ultimate song to walk down the aisle to. What a film!

5. Turning Page by Sleeping at Last

This song is impossibly pretty. And yes, it’s the tune that Bella walks down the aisle to marry Edward in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn. You don't have to scowl though - you can smile all the way down the aisle. It's the happiest day of your life after all.

It doesn't matter how many times you play it, it never fails to get us welling up. That woman's voice is like velvet.
