Lots of people use non-traditional songs. Where are you getting married? Ive only been to church weddings that use Wagner’s Wedding march. One civil ceremony used pachbel’s canon in d played by a string qusrtet. We’re going to use Mozart’s entrance of the queen of sheba for our church wedding. Apparently its really popular.

I dislike Wagner and all I can think of when I hear that song is the childish version of here comes the bride, all fat and wide.

I walked to an instrumental version of “all I ask of you” from the phantom of the opera – loved it! Though im not sure any of our guests would have recognized it

AntonyaDial: My brother and sis-in-law asked me to sing that song for them at their wedding. Non-traditional is fine, especially considering your venue. I walked to a string quartet playing “Buon Giorno Principessa” from the movie Life is Beautiful, and we used some gorgeous, joyful music from The Lord of the Rings elsewhere.

Traditional and non-traditional songs are all nice for me.

My cousin’s wife walked down the aisle to 1000 years. I hate twilight so always disliked the song by association but it was SO perfect and beautiful. I myself am going very non-traditional and walking down to Sweet Child of Mine by Guns n Roses

I used Neville’s Waltz from the Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire soundtrack. We walked back up to a Sigur Ros song. If I had gotten married in a cathedral with 300 people there I’d have walked up to Holst’s The Planets – Jupiter because that right there is a motherfuckin’ entrance song.

AntonyaDial:  The Piano Guys do a really great instrumental version of 1000 Years & that is what I am using for my bridesmaids processional.  My dad is walking me down the aisle to Here Comes the Sun by the Beatles.  I say go for it!

It’s actually pretty common to not use a traditional wedding march. I think your venue suits it, as well. I love that song and I think it will be perfect! I’ll be walking to the instrumental version of ‘So This is Love’ from Cinderella.

We had a church wedding, and I did NOT want to be marching down to the traditional “Here comes the bride” with loud piping organs!  I actually used the same song that everyone else used, she just played it louder than everyone else.

I think what you are planning sounds really nice!

I think non traditional is fun. I will be walking to an instrumental version of Some Day my Prince will Come from Snow White

i’ve never been to a wedding where they play the traditional wedding march.

so the choice is up to you, use whatever you want.  a thousand years is a very popular choice these days.

i walked down the aisle to an instramental version of beatles’ here comes the sun.

I, like other posters, have never been to a wedding where the wedding march was played. Most people use other classical music or secular music (if not in a church).
