No, you’re not too old for a song, especially one that’s as age-neutral as this.  I think saying you’re too old for this is like saying someone in their 20s shouldn’t pick “I Can’t Help Falling in Love with You” by Elvis.

As someone who doesn’t really like Twilight, I have to say that that song is awesome.

No definitely not too old, but people do associate that song with the movie. So if you think that might upset you, then that’s something to consider. I (26 yrs) was at a wedding last fall and a violinist started playing the melody. I immediately recognized it as the Twilight song even though I have not seen the movies. Some others around me noticed too. Its not a bad thing, just something to be aware of. It is an amazing song!

I really love the song but I wouldn’t use it because I HATE the movies and I feel like they glorify abusive relationships and the need for a woman to be in a relationship to be complete, a horrible message for the target audience of teenage girls

You’re never too old for a song that means something to you.

If the song turns out not to be long enough have the DJ restart it, no one will notice I promise

I didn’t realize this was from Twilight until my sister told me on the weekend.  I’m still using it I’m 32.  We are using the piano only version. 

We’re also using a piano version of Can’t Help Falling In Love With You during the ceremony.  

And One Direction (ok, that’s thrown in as a nod to FI’s neices.  But its a piano cover of one of their songs – I have no idea what the name of it is, but it’s pretty on the piano.)

No I don’t think you’re too old for that song, it’s a timeless song to me anyways! I love it so much, I am almost 100% sure I will use it somehow in my wedding… And of course the meaning of the song to you is very important so go ahead : )

I don’t care for the song and HATE the Twilight movies (and the books they’re based on.) The song has also been played at a lot of weddings lately. It’s the Pachelbel’s Canon in D of movie songs. But you’re not too old for it, there’s no “wrong” age for a song. If it makes you happy, go for it.

Our parents/bridal party walked down the aisle to that song (a piano cover of it), and I walked in to a piano cover of ‘Unchained Melody’.

Although it was used for Twilight, Christina Perri is an old soul. If you are concerned try the instrumental version by Piano Brothers, it’s gorgeous!

I love it! Screw haters who can only focus on what movie it was in when a gorgeous bride is walking down the aisle. Embrace it! When I first heard he song I almost cried and got butterflies. You should feel that way about the song your husband will hear watching you walk down the aisle. That’s why I’m using it

brighteyedgirl:  “Unchained Melody” is such a gorgeous classic. Nice choice!
