    You are going to get people telling you Cannon in D is over done.  And really, a lot of people use it.

    That said I LOVE Cannon in D, and so does my FI.  My FI has 24 versions of Cannon in D on his iPod.  We spent the first three months of our engagement looking for a song we loved as much.  After three months, we gave up.  We knew, hands down, we were not finding something we liked as much.

    I love it and think it’s beautiful and classic so I say YAY (: We’re having our string trio play it and I don’t think any other song will make me feel as ‘bridal’.

    Sometimes the classics are classics for a reason. If you love it, go for it!  There is a lot of music I love, but few that strike emotion in me like Canon in D, so I totally support your feelings on this one Smile

    I’m like, 99.99% positive I’ll be using a cello quartet version of Canon in D.


    Note that I’m a cellist and hate playing Canon in D because our part has like, 8 notes over and over and over and over and over….. but Yeah, I’ll condemn someone else to play it! =D It’s almost a rite of passage…

    Yay! It is a gorgeous song and the epitome of wedding processional. We used it too – my friend played it on the classical guitar. 

    @biasstarfish:  lol, totally. I’m a violinist and love playing it because our part is awesome. My cellist friends all hate it though 🙂

    I have always loved this classical piece, and it is indeed the music to which my bridal party made its entrance. 

    Nearly everything  about weddings could be said to be “overdone,” including all types of theoretically “new” and “original” ideas that now have been copied thousands upon thousands of times over due to the Popularity of wedding blogs and Pinterest.

    When that “something”  has been around for centuries, that’s not a bad thing at all. 🙂

    @pinkrose23:  Canon in D is a classic. It will always be beautiful, loved, and memorable. I say go for it. Sure, it may be popular, but why shouldn’t it be?

    I agree, you will get a lot of people that think it is overdone, but IMO it is so much nicer than “Here Comes the Bride” (Lol, I just think of all of my Barbie weddings when i hear it)  That being said, I LOVE Canon in D.  It gives me goosebumps whenever I hear it so it’s the only thing I want.  I actually am using it for the bridal party and myself (they will reprise with a crescendo for added uumpf when I come down).
