Better late than never, my processional song idea of the day.
Now, this one might give away my slightly advanced age but seriously, it is SUCH a sweet, and lovely song and the sentiments in it are so heartfelt:
I think it would make such a lovely start to a wedding ceremony. I hope you like it, too!
Tomorrow we’ll look at Postude music to harmoniously see your guests out of the reception site.

I do love Pachelbel’s Canon in D but unfortunately its been played so much. Another is the Vitamin String’s version of “Never Think” from the Twilight sdtk. Not completely decided on either.

Lorienne, I love all of your music ideas. It has really inspired me. This last one is one of my favorite songs of all time. But unfortunately, I am limited in the Catholic church. I may just do Pachelbel’s Canon in D…
Do you have any ideas for a Catholic bride with a stuffy church organist?

@GaBGal: We’re using Canon in D as a recessional song — to get around the “it’s been done so much”, we’re going to use a non-piano version. There’s an album on iTunes called “10 Ways of Canon in D” (or something like that) and they have acoustic guitar, bells, violins, harps, everything! =)
My processional song is going to be ‘River Flows in You’ by Yiruma…but I’m not sure what else we’ll use for processional music (for everyone else, I mean). I really really love ‘Rose’ from the Titanic soundtrack (or the Titanic theme), but they sound really feminine to me, and we’re having a modified Jewish processional where all the men proceed up the aisle as well as the women.

Here are the two songs I used (I downloaded each MP3 off Amazon for $0.99 Each:
Wedding Party Processional:
Butterfly Waltz (Piano & Cello) by Brian Crain
Bach Unaccompanied Cello Suite No. 1 in G Major Played by Yo-Yo Ma
Both are instrumental, the first is more modern (I think) and both so beautiful.

@lisalulu, so sorry I missed your earlier post. Thank you for your kind words!!!
Not sure if you saw my post from last week with a “bonus” but it just might be the answer for you! Here is a link to that particular piece, where you can listen to it:
It is an incredibly lovely version of the traditional “Here Comes The Bride” done in piano by the keyboard player from Journey.
Think the stuffy organist would be up for trying that?
