FI and I really want to walk back down the aisle to the upbeat song "Signed, Sealed, Delivered". I can just see everyone clapping along while we jubiliantly walk/run/dance down!
However, we also agree that classical music like "Canon in D" and "Trumpet Voluntary" is perfectly classic & lovely for our processional, and that we would like string musicians to play the music live.
So would it be weird to have live musicians for the processional, and then have someone turn on the Stevie Wonder song for our walk back down the aisle? Just to give a feel of our wedding, we are having an outdoor morning wedding, with a relaxed brunch to follow. There won’t a DJ or dancing at the reception – that’s saved for the after party.
Is it too out of place, or should we do what we really want?

I don’t think it’s out of place at all… I love that Stevie Wonder song! It’s totally cute and appropriate in my opinion. Do what you really want! 🙂

We are doing a mix of classic and modern music – I love it! I think the music should be yours. I love the personal touch!

Thanks ladies! I feel better about this now. Does anyone else have experience combining live and recorded music?

To blend it all together, what about having the live musicians do a rendition of the Stevie Wonder song? Could be a fun twist.
We’ll be having a blend of Enya, modern, and a couple traditional church songs at our wedding, and my cousin will be playing all those songs on the piano.

Hmm, I think we’d prefer the original, is that weird?

I say go with whatever you want! People are going to be picking apart your wedding, and if they do, who cares! If you want to mix and match, mix and match, it shows your personality!
