Offbeat Weddings

offbeat "here comes the bride" song

I'm so excited. I just got this today from Kevin Budd - he's a panflutist who agreed to record a version of the wedding march for me in panflute! 

My mom and I had a bit of a disagreement. She wanted me to have the traditional bridal march (or "here comes the bride" song) but I wanted something more nontraditional - so we compromised and got the song she wanted in panflute! It's so lovely and beautiful and actually made me cry!!  (I just hope I get over it before the wedding!)

I made it into a little video with some must have photos from my planning site.

 Now I just have to pick the rest of my ceremony music, and we'll be good to go.

    Sounds like a great compromise to me.

    PS. If you find a way to stop crying when you listen to it, let me know. I've been listening to my walk down the aisle song and first dance song over and over and I still cry every time.

    My "offbeat" wedding march is Melon Collie and the Infinite Sadness by The Smashing Pumpkins.  Yes the song sounds sad but its really a beautiful all instrumental song recorded by them.  The first time I heard it I was a freshman in high school and I KNEW that was what I was going to walk down the aisle to.  I don't like the traditional wedding march.  And since Smashing Pumpkins is my favorite band (or at least they were in high school) it just makes perfect sense to use them.

    yeah, I wanted to do something like that, but since most of the rest of my wedding is very nontraditional, I had to give in on something for my parents and FIL'

    I'll let you know if I can stop crying, but I doubt I'll find a way in enough time for your wedding!

    Very pretty!

    I think the song I walk down the aisle to will make me laugh before it makes me cry. Afterall, the first lyric is "shaking like a dog sh*tting razorblades" and it's a break up song, it's so pretty on just guitar though, only our close friends will know what the lyrics are. It also means a ton to FI and I, I'm so excited to walk down the aisle to that song! I'm hoping the sillyness of the song choice will help me to stop from crying!

    Someone told me about this wedding march and I LOVE it...

    However, I have also pictured myself walking down to "Here, There, and Everywhere" by the Beatles.

    So now I'm stumped as to which one to choose :(
