So, I found this song 6 months ago or so. I watched them perform on the local channel 11. Fell in love with this version of this and cried like a baby. I decided I wanted this to play when guests were being seated. We are getting married in a contemporary church, and I guess I have questions on how to mix music together?
I am walking down the aisle to Canon in D that my friend is playing on the violin and she will also be playing Train’s “Marry me” on the violin during the unity candle.
I want us to walk out of the church to Queen’s ” You’re my best friend”. (love this song)
Is it weird to have some songs that will play overhead from a cd and some on violin? Do you think I should just keep all the music in between the walking down the aisle to the walking out on the violin and traditionalesque? Help?! Clueless.

I don’t think anyone would care if you had different “forms” of music.

I don’t think it’s a big deal to have two different types of music, but I’m pretty easygoing. Have you thought of asking your violinist if he/she could play a version of the song? I don’t know if that’s really an option, but you could always ask.

I am thinking of doing the same thing and have similar worries. My dad it playing the oboe before the ceremony, and we’ll have a violinist and someone else play Ave Maria and maybe something else at some point during the ceremony. . . and then the rest of the music will be from CD (I think!). I’ll have to hound you to see how it went, lol.

yea, I figure it’ll be ok…but I wasn’t sure if people would think we were everywhere and had no class.
