    If it helps at all, we had less traditional processional and recessional music and had one of our friends record “Blue Skies” on the glockenspiel and that’s what I walked in to. It was lovely and I loved having him be involved, but we had a pretty laid back outdoor ceremony so it made sense for us to give our selves wiggle room. I really think it sounds nice.

    I think it sounds like a beautiful idea.  If he was just an amateur I would have misgivings, or if you were being incredibly strict and controlling in your wedding than I would suggest doing it yourself, but since he’s a professional and you are being somewhat laid back, I think the idea of having your own original soundtrack is beautiful and I wish I had the same opportunity 😀

    I can see how you might be uneasy about music you’re not familiar with. I’m sure he is very talented, but what if you don’t like what he composes? How frustrating would it be to have music at your ceremony that didn’t fit with what you had imagined?

    On the other hand, if it’s really important to your FI, maybe consider doing it. I’ve made many of the decisions about our wedding so when FI has something that he “really wants”, even though I don’t love some of his ideas, I’ve been saying yes so I’m not a total controlling crazy person. 🙂
