Wedding Ceremony & Reception Music Discussions

Ceremony Music- HELP!

I have been searching for songs for months and just can not find one that I like for my girls to walk into and then for me to walk into.  I am not a traditional bride, so I really DO NOT want to use the wedding march.  ANY and ALL suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks!

We are having a friend sing "I Do" by Matthew West during our sand ceremony.
All other music will be played from a cd.

    Ditto here.  The bms are walking down to Marry Me, by Train.  I know that's turning into the "typical wedding song" but I really like it!

    I'm walking down to Bron Yr Aur by Led Zeppelin.  It is an instrumental guitar (not the stomp version)

    I'm using the same song for the honored family members to come in to and for the bridal party. It's called A Love That will Last by Rene Olstead. I've loved that song forever. Its really old but it's amazing and it works with my vintage theme. I am coming in to the piano intro of Coldplay's The Scientist. My FH's friend is playing it and he's just going to loop it around and keep playing it.

    I'm thinking about using 'Rhythm of Love' by Plain White Tees for the bridal party to walk in. Then I want to walk in to 'Marry Me' by Train.

    Dreaming by Amy beach or Brahms Op 118 no 2 are good for piano... very romantic sounding but not in-your-face
