Can I have your opinion?

My FI and I love the Beatles.  It was one of the first things we found we had in common when we first met.  We want to have 1, maybe 2 Beatles Songs in our ceremony.  FI really loves the song, "Let It Be", what do you girls think of this song?  Do you think the lyrics are appropriate?  Here is the link for them, thank you! :)

    I'm not sure I like it for a wedding.  If you want Beatles, how about "In My Life" or "All You Need is Love"?

    I would also choose another Beatles song. The songs PP mentioned are good. Our first dance song will be I Will. Good luck!

    In my honest opinion, do whatever you want.  Really.  If your FI really loves the song, and you can squeeze a 30 second clip into the wedding ceremony for him and make him happy, do it.  The song really doesn't scream "wedding" but it's not inappropriate either.

    DItto, do what you want.  I said in a past post that if it means something to you and your FI, then that makes it special.  I'm not a fan of etiquette when it comes to weddings and I tried not to care what other people would think.  It should be special to you, not everyone else.  That's what their weddings are for.

    also check out "vitamin string quartet" on youtube/itunes, they play strings versions of modern/semi-modern rock.

    you might be able to fit a more "wedding-like" version into your ceremony and the beatles version into your reception.

    I went to a wedding this October. At the end of the service when they were presented they turned to face the congregation and "All you need is love" started to play. It was the cutest thing ever, I wish I wouldve thought of it first. I loved it.

    Thanks for the suggestions ladies.  I started researching more Beatles songs last night and found out they did a cover of Buddy Holly's song Words of Love, so I talked to FI about it and we're doing that for the exit to incorporate our love for the Beatles in there.  Thanks for all the feedback! :)

    This is what we did. :-) They started playing when we kissed and played us and the bridal party out.  It was awesome.

    Smile, did you crash my wedding? ;-)

    I have to confess though, I totally ripped the idea from Love, Actually, so I can't claim it as my own.  We love the Beatles though, so it worked.  We also had "All You Need Is Love" printed on the inside of our kippot that the men wear.
