Not every couple’s wedding vision includes walking down the aisle to “Here Comes The Bride.” So what other non-traditional song options are there? Plenty.

We asked The Huffington Post’s Facebook community for song ideas to set the scene, and more than 200 people shared their picks.

Below is a sampling of different tracks ― some are deeply romantic, others are light, upbeat and charismatic.

“Come with me // My love // To the sea // The sea of love // I wanna tell you // How much // I love you.”

“Lucky I’m in love with my best friend // Lucky to have been where I have been // Lucky to be coming home again.”

“Touch me deep // Pure and true // Gift to me forever // ‘Cause I’m kissing you, oh, I’m kissing you.”

“Make me feel like I’m the only girl alive for you // I don’t know what it is that makes me fall like this // First time in your arms, I knew.”

“Tonight, maybe tonight // Is the start of a beautiful ride that’ll never end.”

“All this time we were waiting for each other // All this time I was waiting for you // Got all these words, can’t waste them on another // So I’m straight in a straight line running back to you.”

“I want somebody to share // Share the rest of my life // Share my innermost thoughts // Know my intimate details // Someone who’ll stand by my side // And give me support.”

“Sold, I’m ever // Open ears and open eyes // Wake up to your starboard bride // Who goes in and then stays inside.”

“There’s nothing you can do that can’t be done // Nothing you can sing that can’t be sung...All you need is love, love // Love is all you need.”

“’Cause I could live by the light in your eyes // I’ll unfold before you // Would have strung together // The very first words of a lifelong love letter.”

“And, baby, would you marry me // On a mountain top or a traffic stop // Or maybe on a boat that floats into the great unknown // That would be a day to remember our love by.”

“Two drifters, off to see the world // There’s such a lot of world to see // We’re after that same rainbow’s end.”

“On a journey of the heart // There’s so much to see // And when the sky is dark // You’ll be right here // Right here with me.”

“Come away with me and we’ll kiss on a mountaintop // Come away with me and I’ll never stop loving you.”

“I want her everywhere and if she’s beside me // I know I need never care // But to love her is to need her everywhere // Knowing that love is to share.”

“I look in your eyes and there I see // What happiness really means // The love that we share makes life so sweet // Together we’ll always be // This pledge of love feels so right.”

“I’ll be your mirror // Reflect what you are, in case you don’t know // I’ll be the wind, the rain and the sunset // The light on your door to show that you’re home.”

“This is gonna be the best day of my life... All the possibilities // No limits just epiphanies.”

“Build me a boat // That can carry two // And both shall row, my love and I.”

“Falling slowly, eyes that know me // And I can’t go back.”

“Honey just put your sweet lips on my lips // We should just kiss like real people do.”

“Falling slowly, eyes that know me // And I can’t go back.”

“And the first time ever I lay with you // I felt your heart so close to mine // And I knew our joy would fill the earth // And last ‘til the end of time, my love.”

“And you shall take me strongly // In your arms again // And I will not remember // That I even felt the pain.”

27. This Must Be the Place,” version by Iron & Wine and Bed Bridell
“Home, is where I want to be // But I guess I’m already there // I come home she lifted up her wings // Guess that this must be the place.”

“Well if the sun shines so bright // Or on our way it’s darkest night // The road we choose is always right, so fine.”

“You’re all that I ever known, when you smile, on my face, all I see is a glow // You turned my life around, you picked me up when I was down.”

“And threw her arms around my neck // Show me how you do it // And I promise you I promise that // I’ll run away with you // I’ll run away with you.”

“A dream is a wish your heart makes // When you’re fast asleep... Have faith in your dreams and someday // Your rainbow will come smiling through.”

“Every long lost dream led me to where you are // And others who broke my heart they were like northern stars // Pointing me on my way into your loving arms.”

“I wanna love you every day and every night // We’ll be together with a roof right over our heads // We’ll share the shelter of my single bed.”

“Sometimes you make me feel like I’m living at the edge of the world // Like I’m living at the edge of the world // ‘It’s just the way you smile,’ you said.”

“Yours is the first face that I saw // I think I was blind before I met you.”

“We’ve come a long way // And baby, you know I hope and I pray // That you believe me // When I say this love will never fade away // Oh, because // You are the best thing // Ever happened to me.”

“How long will I love you? // As long as stars are above you // And longer, if I may.”

“Somewhere beyond the sea // She’s there watching for me // If I could fly like birds on high // Then straight to her arms // I’d go sailin’.”

“You take two bodies and you twirl them into one // Their hearts and their bones // And they won’t come undone // Hearts and bones.”

“For you, I’d wait ‘til kingdom come // Until my day, my day is done.”

“And I wish you all the love in the world // But most of all, I wish it from myself.”
