Ceremony Music - What's Yours?

Hi ladies!

I'm trying to decide on our ceremony music and need some inspiration. What's your music for:

Guests arrival
Mothers Processional
Bridal Party Processional
Bride Processional
Recessional!

    Well, FI is really into indie music and it's not really "dancable" so we're gathering a list of indie stuff we like (that isn't anti-love) and will have the DJ play that for guests' arrival.

    The mother's/parents will probably walk in to: Badly Drawn Boy-I Love NYE

    We're going to have the GM walk in then FI and they will walk to: RHCP-Snow (It's done by the TUR orchestra and they were SO nice and emailed me a MP3 to use =) )

    Then the BMs will walk down with my dad and I following and we'll all walk to: Mychael Danna-The Winner Is

    Our recessional will be: Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros-Home

    Hope this helps! =)

    ours will be:

    prelude (while people are being seated): classical (our organist wasn't more specific, i think she just sort of plays what she feels like, im cool with this)
    parents processional: jesu, joy of man's desiring - bach
    bridesmaids processional: trumpet voluntary - purcell
    bride processional: bridal chorus - wagner
    recessional: wedding march - mendelssohn

    other choice songs (during the mass):
    unity candle: the bridal prayer - copeland
    prayer to the blessed mother: ave maria

    we are having a full catholic mass so there are other songs as well, but those are just normal church songs.
    Happily married since 9/1/2012!

    Guests arrival: Various songs by Vitamin String Quartet. (They do classical covers of everything from Led Zep to Lady GaGa. Definitely google VSQ and check them out!)
