Walking down the aisle together. Music?

This is my second wedding and we are going to walk down the aisle together.  I was trying to figure out what music to play.  Any suggestions. I was thinking Train - Marry me.

    Well, it really depends on what type of music you like.

    Traditional? Go with the wedding march, Canon in D, or Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring.
    A rebel? Take your favorite rock song and find an instrumental version of it.
    Religious? Your/your FI's favorite hymn.
    Folksy? A celtic ballad, or a song from a group like Nicklecreek.

    And "Marry Me" by Train is extremely popular right now. So a ton of brides are using it. That doesn't mean that you can't too! Just be prepared to know a lot of people that use the same song.

    I knew there was a reason I never enter these chats.

    Yes you did and I appreciate that.

    The question is more important to me than my spelling and responses to the original question is greatly appreciated.

    Don't take it personally.  There are at least 5 or 6 posts every week with isle instead of aisle so it's kind of a joke around here.

    And I think Melissa gave you a pretty good breakdown.  You need to decide what style you're going for. It sounds like non-traditional; Marry Me is a nice choice.

    It sounds like you picked a song and just wanted confirmation, which is why you didn't get a whole bunch of song suggestions. Music is really personal, so it's be hard to just come up with things you'd like without knowing you. Try Pandora, put in the Train song and' thumbs up' things you like and see what other suggestions it gives you.
