    I have never been to a wedding with that song, I think it is a great choice! And if it is what you have always wanted to have playing, and you still want it, I wouldn’t let its popularity stop you.

    ne11y23:  I have been to one wedding that did this. But that’s out of 5 or 6 weddings in the past year.

    Play what you want at your wedding. I have always been hellbent on not playing anything that’s remotely popular for aisle walks, but am going to end up walking to “The Book of Love” just because it’s sentimental. 

    It’s your day! Who cares if it’s been played before?

    ne11y23:  I’ve never heard that song played at any of the weddings I’ve attended, so I def wouldn’t consider it over done. I like his version of this song, but it always makes me sad, so it would feel like a bit of a downer to start the ceremony with it. If you love it, go for it. No one will care

    We played that at our reception, but I’ve never been to another wedding where it was played.

    I went to a wedding where this song was the first dance. It was nice and different.

    ne11y23:  I went to a wedding where this was the song they walked out to after the wedding. I think it’s totally fine to use. Our DJ suggested it to us, but I didn’t end up using it.

    ne11y23:  lol its a lovely song, but every time i see a girl walk down the aisle to it i just roll my eyes. There are a million songs to choose.  I walked down to lovely acoustic version of “Somebody to Love” by Queen!! it was very me.

    We used it for our father-daughter and mother-son dance. I think it’s a great song for walking down the aisle!
