So we are getting married outside on Monday and I’m undecided about ceremony music. I can’t stand the traditional here comes the bride…what other songs are out there? Or should I scrap the music all together? We are not having a DJ as this is like a fun dinner party instead of a traditional reception.

- Wedding: August 2013 - Wynn Las Vegas
We just chose songs we like…The Beatles, Libertines, Madess. It doesn’t have to be something traditional at all.

We had the dj play assorted Vitamin String Quartet songs while our guests waited.
My husband, along with his parents, followed by the bridal party, walked out to an instrumental version of Here Comes the Sun.
I walked out with my parents to a really sweet ukulele version of Can’t Take My Eyes Off You.
We ended the ceremony by walking out to The Verve’s Bittersweet Symphony.

I wouldn’t scrap the music, I feel like it adds something to the ceremony and is a good reflection of you two as a couple.
We used “Faithfully” by Acoustic Guitar Guy for the processional and Queen’s “You’re My Best Friend” for the recessional.

Check out Vitamin Strings Quartet-
We are having a quartet for ours and they are playing songs like “Ho Hey” and “It’s Time”…actually pretty pumped about it! I didn’t want traditional either.

I would have at least some music. We also used instrumental versions of songs from Vitamin String Quartet for our ceremony. We had the bridal party walk down to their version of “Can’t Help Falling in Love with You,” my dad and I to “All You Need is Love,” and our recessional was “Bittersweet Symphony.” We loved our music!
