OMG! My FI wants the same thing! I thought he was crazy when this came out of his mouth, but then he had me listen to the song, which is very pop and upbeat and not a song I had ever even heard of, Just the Way You Are by Bruno Mars, but then he told me to wait.

There is a part of the song that gets slow and less music and it says “When I see your face, there’s not a thing that I would change. Because your amazing just the way you are”  I looked at him and he was a little welled up.

He then told me that everytime he hears this silly song it reminds him of me and so I agreed.  And now when I picture it in my head I think it’s a cool thing to do. It’s different and so are we!

Well anything more than a 5 or 10 second kiss is going to be kind of long, so whatever you pick should be short!  What happens immediately after the kiss in your ceremony?  In mine, we went right into the recessional and the accompanying song.  So at least in my case, I think it might have been a slightly awkward to transition from kissing music into joyful recessional music.  We had applause and a few “wooo’s” during our kiss anyway.

And he’s right that it wouldn’t take away from the moment at all to have music.  The only thing I’d be concerned with is whether the transitions will be smooth and timed right.

@jenbrandner:  well since our music is upbeat we are using it as our recessional music. So I think you make a super good point.

You would have to pick the right music or be okay with walking back down to something somber.

This could work, but it would have to be finely tuned (no pun intended!). The person in charge of playing the song would have to be well-acquainted with the officiant’s service and be ready for your kiss. Otherwise, there could be an awkward pause of waiting (even a few seconds could feel long) for the music…which might make you even more uncomfortable.

I wanted to use the theme from the Final Fantasy games that plays when you win a battle… *hides*

Drums – You didn’t end up doing it? 🙁 I asked FI if we could and he says as long as it’s FFVII’s version, hehe.
