We’re thinking about using one of the Vitamin String Quartet’s versions of a modern song for our processional music. But I’m not which song to use — we want to pick one we like, but that also has a good pace for walking down the aisle — many seem too fast. Any suggestions of ones that worked well at your wedding, or that you’re planning to use?

Yes, we are and I am so ridiculously excited about it! My fiance and I are both big fans of Dashboard Confessional, and really bonded over our mutual love of them when we first started dating. We’re going to have the bridal party walk down to Vitamin String Quartet’s version of “Stolen” (http://www.amazon.com/Stolen-Tribute-to-Dashboard-Confessional/dp/B001DQI6VU) and I’ll be walking down to their version of “Hands Down”(http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000TPTSWC/ref=dm_mu_dp_trk1) … both sound absolutely amazing and are completely perfect for us!

I just made up my entire program of songs only by Vitamin String Quartet:
Falling Slowly, Best Deceptions, Hallelujah, Chasing Cars, Wonderful Tonight, Lifesong, Clocks, Stairway to Heaven, Yellow
And our actual processional song for the bridal party is Dare You To Move

I plan on using their version of, “Just Like Heaven”. I’m not sure what part I’ll use it for but it’s definately going to be inserted somewhere!

I have several songs I’m looking at a a processional song, one of them is Vitamin String Quartet’s “All I Want Is You” originally by U2.

So, I had to share this with people that would understand…
I have a friend of a friend that works in entertainment and production management…and she is going to have the ACTUAL vitamin string quartet at her wedding!

We’re using Falling Slowly for the groom’s processional and All I Want Is You for mine. Mom’s and bridesmaids are getting traditional wedding music (Vivaldi and Pachelbel). Yay!
@Krissycake: that is so cool! I keep trying to figure out if we can get a real string quartet in… we can’t. 😉

The processional is to All You Need is Love and I am walking into Somebody to Love. Our whole wedding song list is a little off kilter but we wouldn’t have it any other way

We’re using them too! The bridesmaids and groomsmen will be walking down to God Only Knows by the Beach Boys and I’ll be walking down to All You Need is Love by The Beatles. We haven’t decided on the recessional yet, but I’m thinking Bittersweet Symphony. I was so excited when I found Vitamin String Quartet…what a great idea!

@krissycake that is so cool about your friends wedding.
I haven’t totally decided yet on the ceremony music, but I do like the Vitamin String Quartets versions of Guns N Roses “Sweet Child o Mine” and Journeys “Don’t Stop Believing”. Not sure how those would work in the ceremony.

Not for the processional since secular music is a no-no for the church, but we are planning on playing the VSQ Snow Patrol music during cocktail hour and dinner.

OK I’d seen a bajillion posts about this Vitamin String Quartet and never had a clue what the heck it was. Don’t know why this thread prompted me to finally look it up. But I wish I hadn’t! Holy crap – it’s the coolest thing ever – and the one thing I THOUGHT I had my mind made up on was music. And then this comes along……….agggggghhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!! hahahaha

I am all about VSQ!!! We are using them for all of our pre-ceremony music – “All I want is You” by U2, “Daughters”, John Mayer, “I’m Yours” Jason Mraz, etc..
I am walking down the aisle to “Sweet Child of Mine.” Just the beginning part. I have only one attendant and a very short aisle!
