First of all Happy New Year to all! Only 5 hours to go here.
Anyway, instead of being out celebrating I’m stressing about wedding music! Most of the ceremony is ok because we will do mainly tradional songs. There is a little bit of scope there though and we want our personalities to show in the music.
One of my favourite movie scenes is the wedding one in Love Actually to ‘All You Need is Love’! for that reason, that is one of our song options. We were also thinking of ‘what a Wonderful World’ or ‘Your Song’. I want it to be something that people will recognise. I’m just wondering if anyone has any other ideas? This will be for the very end of the ceremony.
Thanks very much in advance 🙂

Picking songs is so hard, but we are so excited with our choices. I’m walking down the aisle to Pachelbel Canon in D (unoriginal I know, but it has special meaning to me). Then our pastor gave us the suggestion to check out Canon Rock- youtube it, there are a few versions, but we love the ‘funtwo’ one. It ties in withthe processional, but has the celebration vibe to it!

Hmm… I’m thinking of having our processional song be an instrumental version of Sting’s “Fields of Gold,” it might work for a recessional? If you’d be into an instrumental cover (and haven’t already found them), check out the Vitamin String Quartet (samples of their music are on Amazon). They cover a bunch of songs that are very recognizable, and they have an entire Beatles album.

For our recessional song we will most likely be using You Always Make Me Smile by Kyle Andrews – its super cute and fun!

I no help. I’m using Taylor Swift Enchanted that I’ve edited to be just instrumental except for the chorus

We opted for very modern.. I don’t like old style type music at all. However, we didn’t want them to be so harsh, so we are going with piano versions [no vocals].
prelude : hanging by a moment : lifehouse [this is me and fi’s song]
processional : all or nothing – theory of a dead man
bridal processional : truly madly deepy – savage garden
recessional : you & me – lifehouse
All of these songs can be heard on our wedding website, in the order they are to be played.
