Traditional Aisle Wedding songs

 1. "Bridal Chorus" (German: "Treulich geführt"), from the 1850 opera Lohengrin, by German composer Richard Wagner. This song is also known as 'Here Comes the Bride'.It is also known as 'the Wedding March.'


Here comes the bride,
All dressed in white,
Sweetly, serenly in the soft glowing light.
Lovely to see, marching to thee,
Sweet love united for eternity.

Here are the real lyrics, translated from the German opera Lohengrin by Richard Wagner. The bride in the opera wore white, hence the all dressed in white lyrics I suppose.
I think this song is quite beautiful.

Guided by us, thrice happy pair
Enter this doorway, 'tis love that unites
All that is brave, all that is fair
Love now triumphant forever unites

Champion of virtue boldly advance
Flower of beauty gently advance
Now the loud mirth of revelling is ended
Night bringing peace and bliss has descended
Fanned by the breath of happiness rest
Closed to the world , by love only blest

Guided by us, thrice happy pair
Enter this doorway, 'tis love that unites
All that is brave, all that is fair
Love now triumphant forever unites

I also found these lyrics which are perhaps a more accurate translation but doesn't go with the music.

Faithfully guided, draw near
to where the blessing of love shall preserve you!
Triumphant courage, the reward of love,
joins you in faith as the happiest of couples!
Champion of virtue, proceed!
Jewel of youth, proceed!
Flee now the splendour of the wedding feast,
may the delights of the heart be yours!

This sweet-smelling room, decked for love,
now takes you in, away from the splendour.
Faithfully guided, draw now near
to where the blessing of love shall preserve you!
Triumphant courage, love so pure,
joins you in faith as the happiest of couples!

Faithfully guarded, remain behind
where the blessing of love shall preserve you!
Triumphant courage, love and happiness
join you in faith as the happiest of couples.
Champion of youth, remain here!
Jewel of youth, remain here!
Flee now the splendours of the wedding feast,
may the delights of the heart be yours!
This sweet-smelling room, decked for love,
has now taken you, away from the splendour.

Faithfully guarded, remain behind
where the blessing of love shall preserve you!
Triumphant courage, love and happiness
join you in faith as the happiest of couples.
