    @futuremrstierce:  We are also getting married outside and having our friend officiate. We are doing songs with lyrics! We are doing 2 Landon Pigg songs (“falling in love at a coffee shop” and “little darlin”). Have you heard of Vitamin string quartet? They are AMAZING and do instrumental versions of popular songs. Might be a good middle ground!

    We’re also doing an outdoor ceremony with a friend officiant! We are using VSQ songs as mentioned by a PP. We felt like lyrics are a bit… I don’t know, unsubtle? We just wanted music. We’ll have plenty of songs with lyrics later!

    My fiancé has got the most say when it comes to music. We are having an outdoor church ceremony. However, if it was up to me, it would be a bit of Column A and a bit of Column B. 🙂 Hymns are very normal in a wedding service — so I don’t see why songs with lyrics should be overlooked. It would be fun for the bridal party to walk to song with lyrics! My cousin’s husband jogged down to Rocky’s theme music for their wedding.

    The only music I am trying to avoid is Pachelbel’s Canon in D. It subconsciously reminds me of Vitamin C’s Graduation Song. (Ick)

     

    @futuremrstierce:  Are you lining the songs yourself or do you have musicians to play the songs?

    @futuremrstierce:  Instrumental.  There’s something about a song with lyrics during the wedding ceremony – it’s distracting and makes it less romantic and intimate.  IMO.

    I prefer instrumental. We are also using VSQ, specifically “Yellow” for the bridesmaids and “Dare You to Move” for me. The mother’s song has lyrics but that’s only because my mom begged me to use a specific song and I can’t find an instrumental version.

    I just feel like people focus to much on trying to listen to the lyrics as opposed to just watching the processional.

    I’m another VSQ bride!

    I’ll just have it playing while people are finding their seats and such – no bridal party for us.

    @futuremrstierce:  

    Guitar and piano? You’ve got a LOT to choose from for instrumental music.

    Jim Brickman
    N Sync – This I Promise You
    Over the Rainbow
    98 Degrees – Cherish

    Pretty much any Beatles songs that you like. 🙂
    The possibilities are endless.

    We’re getting married outside. Our music is from a string quartet, but they are playing the string quartet version of current songs, like Norah Jones and the Beatles.
