Wedding Vows & Ceremony Discussions

processional/recessional songs

someone on my local boards made a thread about this and i would love to see what everyone else is using!!

i am strongly considering using bruno mars "just the way you are" for my processional.  the only thing is that it does say "sexy" in one of the verses... do you think people will be offended? ((we are getting married outside, about 50 guests, nothing religious))

recessional: not sure... going to start looking at that now!

     Processional: My bridal party and my parents and my FI's parents will be walking down the isle to "Hallelujah" by The Candian Tenors, and I will be walking down the isle to Canon De Pachelbel in D Major!!!

    Recessional: "Crasy little thing called love" by Queen..

    I think that is unique and fun, it's your wedding, I say go with it!!!

    Good Luck

    If you're not getting married in a church, I say go for it!

    We used "Livin' Our Love Song" by Jason Michael Carroll for the processional and Phil Vassar's "Love is a Beautiful Thing" for the recessional. It was supposed to be "Cowboy Take me Away" by the Dixie Chicks but the DJ messed it up :(

    As long as it's not a religious church ceremony, I say go for it!  I'd bet your guests will be so caught up in the excitement of everything that they won't even notice the word "sexy" in the song.

    We're using Little Martha by The Allman Brothers for the BP processional and I Want You by Tom Waits for my processional.  The recessional will be Bron-Yr-Aur by Led Zeppelin

    We did traditional songs for the processional, and Signed Sealed Delivered by Stevie Wonder for the recessional

    That song always makes me smile and I don't think I ever really noticed that it said sexy. I agree that it's a fun way to get your guests excited.

    Groom, Groomsman, and my son will walk down to : Sharp Dressed Man by ZZ Top

    MOH and BM will walk down to: 1,2,3,4 plain white t's

    I will walk down to: I don't want to miss a thing by Aerosmith

    We are in a chapel and can choose our own music. We definatly don't want traditional its just NOT us.
