Re: What song did you pick??

  • I'm walking down to an instrumental version of "In You Eyes" by Peter Gabriel, played by the Vitamin String Quartet. It's my absolute favorite song of all time and has a lot of special meaning for FI and me so I feel like it's just a perfect fit.

  • I have been struggling with this.  Part of me wants to go traditional, but I absolutely hate "here comes the bride".
    Anniversary
  • Edelweiss from 'The Sound of Music' on acoustic guitar played by my brother.

    My mom walked down the aisle to the song that Maria walks to in the movie.
  • I think I am going to do "whatever it is" by zac brown band.  Thats FI song to me...I  know for sure its not going to be the traditional "here comes the bride" because the song was from an opera and in the opera the wife dies shortly after the marriage...I am not sure of the whole story but I believe it was a tragic death also.
  • i'm using Here There Everywhere by The Beatles. i hope to have a guitar player or 2 play an instrumental version.
  • im using the butterfly waltz its very dainty (sp??) and pretty

  • Oh the jury is still out on this one...

    Here is another wedding quirk.  The FMIL has keys to the church but the music director will not allow us to borrow a cd to make selections until she meets us.  ::sigh:: so hopefully over the holidays we can meet up with her. 

    However it has to be on the "approved" list which I might also get to see over the holidays.

  • most likely it will be "you and me" by dave matthews band

  • I'm walking down to an instrumental version of ''beauty and the beast'' (the movie version not the one by Celine Dion).  Just cuz I'm a beauty and the beast superfan and  I want to feel like Belle for 30 seconds or soLaughing

    Honestly it's the only song I can imagine walking down the aisle to.  Plus it's really sentimental to me for a whole bunch of reasons...

    I'm also in the clan of hating ''here comes the bride''.  That song makes me panic and want to hurl.

  • It's on my list of things to do during Christmas break. Right now, I'm leaning towards "All You Need is Love" by the Beatles.

  • I haven't decided yet, but my ceremony music will be all sacred music as I will be married in the Catholic Church.  So, I can guarentee there will be lots of famous composers represented!  :)  The recessional might be the Hallijuah Chorus (suggested by the choir director!).  How fun would that be?!!  I plan to have a string quartet through the prelude along with the full church choir that I'm part of and a trumpeter. 

    The former music major in me is excited about the possibilities!

    Jelenny-I expect that the music minister at the FMIL's church is one of those posessive ones who wont let anyone touch her organ or piano either...just roll with it.

  • I have no clue yet! Haven't even thought about it. Music is more FI thing and he is not exactly on the ball with wedding stuff :) Now I want to go get him on the ball!
  • I want Canon in D but Fi thinks it is so overused so I will be walking down the aisle to Here comes the Bride.

    Tbh - I dont mind, I love hearing it when it is on  the organ and it is the inly thing that Fi has insisted on which I find quite touching.

    I dont think I will even notice the music when I am walking down the aisle, I will be too busy trying to control my crying! I know I am going to be 'one of those' criers

  • I am pretty sure I'm walking down the aisle to "A Quiet Thing" by Kander and Ebb. My friend/BM is going to sing it.
  • Jessica's Theme (Breaking In The Colt) from Snowy River is mine.  It's from a favorite movie of mine and Dad.  We literally fight over the DVD.

  • I may do "Pachelbel- Canon in D" It's very done- but it's gorgeous, and I can't deny that... or we may do "Sunrise, Sunset" --- or Christina Aguilera's "The Right Man" instrumental! HAHA! I'm torn.

  • I keep changing my mind on this. I originally wanted something upbeat, but I now want something slow (seems more emotional). I am leaning towards Bella's Lullaby from Twilight.

    I feel like if I have something soft, it will hit everyone harder and make the momment last.

    Ivy, who are you using for your ceremony? We don't live that far from each other and my ceremony musician prides himself on his version of the theme from princess bride... I'd chuckle if we were using the same guy. 

    On another note... I am still really torn by this. We have a strict "no popular music" rule with the church... but I'm really leaning in the direction of some classic Celtic guitar... I'm not a "here comes the bride" kinda gal... honestly if I had my way I'd be walking down to zelda's lullaby from Ocarina of Time 



    Our first dance song is "Home" by Edward Sharp and the Magnetic Zeros... and we're playing the theme from orignal tetris for our introductions at the reception.
