We're also at the 13 day mark as well (and yes my stomach just flipped again).Anyway, this is the rough draft.FI & Mom: Maxwell-Whenever, Whereever, WhateverBridal Party: Billy Joel- Just the way you areBride: I only have eyes for youThat's what I got right now.

    you will probably get a better response about this song from romey (Krystal) because she's a Beyonce stan, not me...LOL!...I say go with it if you are feeling it and it speaks to your feelings about FI...I personally like DANGEROUSLY IN LOVE but I know the tempo is alittle fast for an entrance song but I will be using this song as our "1st song" because we plan on doing a salsa to it...it will also be a total shock to our fam & friends because they know how I feel about Beyonce...LOL!  :)

    I Love that Shai song! Ow! I'm using Giving Myself Over To You by Jennifer Hudson. I think I saw Asuanta using that too.  Its a BEAUTIFUL song that makes me cry every time I hear it. I'm going to be a blubbering mess.

    I was at a wedding yesterday, the bride walked down to "Beautiful Surprise" by India Arie. It was a great song to walk down too...I'm actually thinking about using it myself now. :-)

      I was planning on walking down to Halo by Beyonce. However, that could change because I'm about sick of that song now. It's always on. I have to change it every time I hear that song come on now.

    i used Giving Myself. Great song and guest response. Beautiful Surprise was used when Perry sat my mom. It's short and extremely sweet.

    I'm walking down to "Giving Myself To You" by Jennifer Hudson too!!! I get misty eyed every time I hear it! Thank God I'll have my MUA on hand!

    The Sweetest Love by Robin Thicke is what's callin' me. Gonna Have a Funky Good Time by James Brown is what I love to walk to.

    I'd like to use Kisses by Bliss. It's on the Sex in the City soundtrack. I ;like it because it would sound great on the beach, very relaxing sounds. Although I'm not sure how that would work on the beach, but any wedding outside, I want this song.lol

    All those songs are beautiful. I haven't thought of a walk song. The only song I have so far is Ave Maria. FI is half Dominican and catholic, we both love that song, of course it will be in Spanish. Other than that, I have a harpist, and my mom's friend is a musical director, so he is coordinating the music from the pre-ceremony to the cocktail hour.Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Girl that is my most favorite song off the bday album. While I was pregnant I made my FI a powerpoint presentation with our pictures and that was the song in the background. I'm quite sure imma pick on of her songs to walk down the aisle to. Dangerously In Love will be played at the wedding to(maybe 1st dance IDK). I was really crunk when i went and seen that was the song you was talking about. Girl use that!!!

    I will be walking down the aisle to Heather Headley's If It Wasn't For Your Love. My colleague will play the piano and a violinist will play the melody of the lyrics. It is soo beautiful and true to our relationship.

    I will be walking in to "That Somebody was you" by Kenny G featuring Toni Braxton.

    We are doing all classical pieces for the ceremony as this is FI's favorite genre of music.

    I was on the Chrissette Michelle, and then I went and listened to the JHUD song, I was tearing up at my computer... I have definitely made the change.

    Alfdallas will appreciate this but I am walking down to The Throne Room music from Star Wars: A New Hope. It actually starts out like the wedding march but it's a song that definitely will announce that I am here!The bridal party is going down to a classical Japanese piece called Innocent Green and my son who is the ringbearer and my flower girl are walking to the Imperial March from Star Wars.There is a lot of classical music from sci fi movies so we are incorporating that type of music in the ceremony and processional.
