I love it and a lot of the older guests will recognize the tune.  Did you look up the lyrics?  Lots of lady in white (bride or angel?)  I vote to keep it, especially since you told him to pick.  If you put down his one choice he likely won’t want to give any other opinions in the future.

I would let it slide. It’s the only thing he decide for the wedding thus far so yeah let him have the song.

You told him to pick it and then gave him a list of songs you wanted.  Sounds like someone doesn’t like to relinquish control.  Let it slide and let him have this one thing.  You’ll love it on your wedding day because (1) you wont even hear it lol and (2) he picked it and thought of your wedding when doing it.

I like the song and it has a beautiful melody.  I say keep it, especially since he chose it at your request.

Our entire wedding party, plus me is proceeding to VSQ’s arrangement of Bohemian Rhapsody, which has nothing to do with love and weddings at all.  I’ve worked a wedding where the bride and bridesmaids proceeded to VSQ’s Don’t Stop Believing.  Everyone loved it.

Whatever you want to be appropriate is appropriate.  You can say something like “Well honey, maybe this particular song isn’t really us” if you’re totally not into it but be ready with suggestions on the same vein of things that you do think are more you.  VSQ has a lot of good old rock songs that would be more in keeping with the theme of love and devotion.

My friend did Apocalyptica’s cover of Metallica’s “Nothing Else Matters”. It worked so well for a processional song. I was sooo jealous that they did it because I totally wanted to do that song. Aghhh, so good. 

And funny, I was thinking of things yesterday, and was TOTALLY thinking about Stairway to Heaven. I was like, “I wish their was an orhcesteral version!” Thanks for showing me this! 😀

If it makes you feel any better, my FI wanted to play the Darth Vader theme song for when I walk down the aisle. He was dead serious about it, too. Believe me, it could be worse!

I’d like to walk out to a VSQ rendition of Killer Queen =)

Since my wedding is going to be very Marie Antoinette inspired.

Let him keep it! It’s a beautiful song and I think it’s appropriate to a wedding for sure.

@Edelweiss:  my fiance suggested the exact same thing!

 

You should definitely let him have his song, at least he put some real effort in and has found something he loves rather than not bothering to think about it.

@Edelweiss:   LOL I love this…I guess because I can relate.  My FI would lovvve this.

Another poster recently posted about a Mr. Peanut statue that was erected on her wedding site.  My FI response, I want Mr. Peanut to walk me down the aisle.  I had to learn Mr. Icetea that he will be walking himself down the aisle ahaha!
