Ceremony Music Ideas

Hello.

My fiance and I are having a reformed Jewish ceremony at the location of our reception.  We are trying to kick around some ideas of nontraditional music to play as the bridal party enters, then myself, and then obviously the recessional.  What ideas do you have?

We like The Winner Is from the Little Miss Sunshine soundtrack, but we would also do instrumental versions of popular songs, or even a popular song with the words. 

Ideas, please!  Also, can someone fill me in on all the abbreviations people have for people in their wedding party?  What the heck is FI?  (I'm not aware of all the lingo! Thanks.)

    Second, 2Cellos and Vitamin String Quartet are excellent recommendations.  Youtube has tons of samples!
