Planning a vow renewal ceremony requires considering what music to play during the ceremony in addition to the reception. You haven’t been a bride for quite sometime, so it’s not exactly appropriate to play “Here Comes the Bride”! However, there’s plenty of other fantastic love songs to choose from when walking down the aisle. Take how long you’ve been together into consideration, as well as what songs are “your songs” as a couple. Here are some of our favorite wedding aisle songs you can use for your renewal.
Everything I Do (I Do For You), Bryan Adams
The love theme to the 1991 movie Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, this beautiful song always tops “Most Romantic Tunes” lists and features a lovely melody that’s just slow enough for a nice little aisle walk.
Have I Told You Lately, Rod Stewart
“Have I told you lately that I love you?” the crooner asks in this super-romantic song. Play it during your vow renewal ceremony and there won’t be a dry eye in the house!
All I Ask of You, Michael Crawford
A beautiful song ideal for musical theater lovers, ‘All I Ask of You’ is from the Andrew Lloyd Webber classic The Phantom of the Opera.
You’re the Inspiration, Chicago
The men of Chicago (the band, not the city) know a thing of two about writing a good love song! Walk to this tune, or go for another Chicago classic, ‘The Glory of Love.’
As Time Goes By (from Casablanca)
Considered by many to be the ultimate romantic movie, ‘As Time Goes By’ is simply classic.
I’m a Believer, The Monkees
Going a bit lighter with your vow renewal ceremony? How about ‘I’m a Believer’ by The Monkees? Featuring the lyric “I couldn’t leave her if I tried,” this is a catchy, fun, romantic song guaranteed to make everyone attending smile.
Because You Loved Me, Celine Dion
A successful partnership always involves supporting and loving one another through it all, and this song is a big “thank you” to your rock–your hubby!
You’re Still the One, Shania Twain
The Canadian country queen’s hit is a great vow renewal tune, as it’s all about how much she still loves her special someone. Lyrics such as “You’re still the one I want for life” are perfect for a renewal ceremony.
These are only a few ideas for vow renewal songs! Pick one that best suits your relationship and enjoy walking down the aisle to it on your special day.
