September 2010 Weddings

please tell me..

what you are playing at your ceremony?

most importantly-
what you are walking down the aisle to?
what you are leaving as husband and wife to?

I know my unity candle song, but I am really stuck on any processional/ressional stuff. I was hoping to keep in instrumental, but not played on an organ or piano, something on a CD to play throughout the church. Help?

    Thanks for your processional music! I think I'll use that for when guests arrive and are being seated. That, or when bridal party is walking down aisle.

  • Oh, and for our music. Only have my entrance song picked out- Bridal March by Jonathan Cain. Slightly different than the original but lovely.

    Lots of people use it, but it's what I've always wanted to use before I even had a groom.

  • We hired a string quartet to play our ceremony. I think I'm going to have them play the final movement of "Fall" by Vivaldi for my bridesmaids. I'm doing "Here Comes the Bride" for my entrance (no one uses it anymore and I LOVE it) and then the traditional "Bridal March" for the recessional :)
  • A solo guitarist will play:
    Jesu, joy of man's desire for the bridal party
    Canon in D for the bride
    Bob Marley's High tide or low tide for the recessional

  • BP Processional is Thank You by Zeppelin
    My Processional is the 2 1/2 min intro of Love Song by Tesla
    Our Recessional is Its The End Of The World As We Know It by REM :-)
    Ring ceremony song is Heaven with the country twist that Jason Aldean put on it originally by Bryan Adams
    Very very untraditional and it's all being played (besides recessional) acoustic by a friend of ours :-)
  • Parents - The luckiest (Ben Fold's)
    BM's - "Falling Slowly" (from the movie Once)
    Bride - Pachabel's Kanon
    Recessional - Viva la Vida (coldplay)

  • Ok I'm a dork and I'll admit it. I love Disney Movies...name a Disney Movie and I own it.
    Mom's are walking into You'll Be In My Heart from Tarzan.
    Bridal Party is walking into Bella Notte from Lady and the Tramp.
    My Dad and I are walking into Tale As Old As Time from Beauty and the Beast.

    We hired a piano player to play them. No words, just the music on the piano and it sounds really pretty just played like that. Not overly Disney, but something special for me. FI favorite Disney movie is Lady and The Tramp, mine is obviously Beauty and the Beast.
  • Nightmare-I LOVE that you are using disney songs! Beauty and the beast is my favorite too, and fox and the hound is my 2nd favorite!

    Here is what we are using:

    Bridal party: Canon in D
    Bride: Sheep may safety graze by Bach
    Recessional: Arrival of the Queen of Sheba from Solomon by Handel
