    The Beatles and “tacky” should NEVER be used in the same sentence together. πŸ™‚

    To answer your concern though, I think you can do no wrong by putting your own personal touch into your wedding. This will stick out to your guests, and make it personal for you. Obviously it caught your attention for a reason, and I think you should do what you want to do, not what people think you should do or what “tradition” says. I personally love the Beatles, along with gajillions of others, so you and you’re guests will surely be pleased!

    And, well, I may be a little biased because I ,too, am walking down the aisle to a Beatles song. πŸ™‚

    I’d maybe do an instrumental, but that’s just my taste – I think either way would be fine. I sure hope it’s not tacky, we have a Beatles cover band for our reception!

    My sister got married 2 years ago and all the ceremony music was Beatles.  I can’t remember exactly what songs each group walked too, but it was beautiful!  I think the recessional was All you need is Love.   Last year at my wedding we all walked to Beach Boys songs.   My husband and groomsmen walked to Good Vibrations.  My girls walked to California Girls (cause they are!)  and I walked to to God Only Knows.  I say, if you like it, do it!  So not tacky!

    Love Here Comes the Sun!

    To offer an alternative to the Beatles version, I walked in to Colbie Callait’s cover version – maybe something to think about?

    Not tacky at all, IMO. I had a harpist playing ‘In My Life’. I’ve been a Beatles fan for many years. It was the perfect song for us. ‘Sun’ is beautiful, and you should choose whatever is right for you.

    Just saying. I think you should definitely do it. In no way are The Beatles EVER tacky! πŸ™‚

    The first song me and FH ever danced to was ‘While My Guitar Gently Weeps’, and obviously, my username is from one of their songs too πŸ™‚

    I’m using all Beatles songs for our processional and dances. Fiance and the bridal party is walking down to Good Day Sunshine, I’m walking to Here comes the Sun, recessional is All You Need Is Love, First dance is Across the Universe, Daddy/Daughter is In My Life and Mother/Son is Love Me Do.


    I grew up hearing the Beatles (my mom is a die hard fan) so it only seemed fitting to use their music. Our wedding is black tie, so I’m breaking the seriousness with some fun music. Also, the music will be live (piano and flute), so it will be a little different.

    I had an instrumental of my favourite song- I say GO FOR THE BEATLES!

    I had “In My Life” (Beatles) playing during our register signing, and I loved it : )

    My bridal party walked down to Here Comes The Sun and I walked down to In My Life and then we recessed to All You Need Is Love! So, no, I do not believe it is tacky at all.  The Beatles are classic and span generations, I say go for it!

    I agree with everyone that the Beatles can NEVER be tacky!

    Love them and plan on using one of their songs in our ceremony.  Plus my very talented cousin will be playing the guitar and Beatles songs sound great as instrumentals.

    If it makes you feel better I am walking in to Tesla’s Love Song!!

    @caseylynn19: I wholeheartedly concur!

    Eehkay, I think choosing “Hear Comes the Sun” for your processional would be lovely. All the music I’m using for my ceremony are Beatles songs, so I definitely say go for it.
