Hi everyone! I have a question, and I know everyone's going to say "Do what YOU want to do" but I'd just like to hear some opinions.
For the longest time, I envisioned myself walking down the aisle to Canon in D, I just adore it. The other day though, we met with the music director at our church, who was kind enough to play some songs for us on the organ. Canon in D sounded gorgeous of course, but then she played Trumpet Voluntary and it was just so "grand," for lack of a better word. It was very joyous and seemed to "let you know" that the bride was about to walk down the aisle.
Some people there (moms, fiance, music lady) said you don't want to go from a more upbeat song for the bridesmaids to a slower song like Canon in D because the music is supposed to ramp up for the bride, and I agreed, and thought we would do Trumpet Voluntary instead, but wonder now if I will miss walking into such a soft, wedding-y entrance.
Thoughts?? What are you processing in to the church (or elsewhere) to? Nothing is set in stone yet but we're about to start on the programs so I need to make up my mind!
Thanks for your opinions!!!
