10 Instrumental Wedding Songs Perfect for Violin and Acoustic Guitar Treatment

Violin arrangements usually pair well with piano accompaniment. But if pianos are not your thing but still love strings, then you should explore acoustic guitar accompaniments instead for violin versions of songs. In this section, we will give you a quick list of the best songs for violin and acoustic guitar treatment. Plus, we will include additional references so you will know which renditions are the best.

  • And I Love Her – Beatles (for reference, check out Musa’s version, which is done with an electric violin and harp). The Fab Four’s “And I Love Her” is a perfect song for the bridal entrance. Plus, it’s something that transcends generations, so everyone knows about it.

  • The Look of Love – Dusty Springfield (for reference, check out the version done by United Guitar Players). This is a classic that needs no introduction. You can select this song for the big walk down the aisle.
  • You Are My Sunshine – Jimmie Davis. If you’re looking for songs for the mother-son dance moment, this song should be on the for-your-consideration list.
  • Endless Love – Lionel Richie & Diana Ross (for reference, check out Eleganza Music’s version). There is a big reason so many couples choose this song for their first dance: It is timeless and it works.
  • Time After Time – Cyndi Lauper. This is a great bridal march in its own right, but you can also use this right before you say your wedding vows.
