We used the Hawaiian version of Somewhere Over the Rainbow for the bridal party entrance and I used the theme song to the Princess Bride “Storybook Love” for my entrance.  It is a beautiful instrumental piece 🙂

ok just stumbled across this as i looked at posts from other denverites (argh, can’t make the meetup, oh well!)  i don’t know if you have already figured all this out but…

check out barber’s adagio for strings for prelude.  f-ing amazing.

lakme flower duet (this can be played with two string players)

the lord’s prayer, malotte

dvorak…love love love dvorak

we also had a bride do one of holst’s “planets,” i want to say jupiter….

also, west side story’s one hand, one heart is sweet and beautiful…i don’t like sappy stuff and i stinkin love it.

a lot of this stuff is vocal (but most of it can be found instrumental only), because i am a vocalist…but there is a lot out there, you just have to look!

You might want to check out our Ceremony Music page.  It has videos of each of our selections.  They were all classical, but there was no “Here Comes the Bride,” “Wedding March,” or “Cannon in D.”
