So my FI met with Hank Lane music and we are going to have three musicians for the ceremony – a guitarist, a keyboardist, and a flutust. For the cocktail hour I want jazz music and the flutist also plays the sax – score. Then during dinner, my venue has it’s own Baby Grand on site so the keyboardist will play the piano during dinner. Cocktail hour music and dinner music are easier, but I’m trying to come up with non-traditional processional and recessional songs that will work with those three instruments. I really want to use ‘All You Need Is Love” though I’m undecided as to whether to use it for the processional or recessional song.
Anyone want to throw out some possibles for the BM processional song, my processional song, and the recessional that you think would work with those instruments? I’m partial to older classic tunes – The Beatles and the like. Work your magic, ladies!

I’m all for an upbeat Beatles tune on the recessional. “All You Need Is Love” or “When I’m Sixty Four”. And maybe something like Stevie Wonder? “Isn’t She Lovely” might be a little too upbeat for a processional.

I’m walking down the aisle to “God only knows” by the Beach Boys and our first dance is to “Eight Days a Week” by the Beatles. For our recessional we’re having “Best of My Love” by the Emotions – cheesy fun!

My FI and BP are walking in to Ben Folds- Luckiest. My father will walk me down the aisle to Bright Eyes- This is the First Day of my Life. Undecided what/if we will play something during the sand ceremony. The recessional will be to Paul McCartney- Calico Skies.
Our introduction will be to Mica- Love today
I will be dancing with my dad to God Only Knows by The Beach Boys..
We arent doing a bouquet toss or garter toss. We are not ones for tradition!

Ooooh, I wanted to have a quartet play “Please, please, please let me get what I want” by the Smiths for my processional, but we ended up not hiring musicians. I just wanted them to play the musical part at the end…. it’s long enough for a processional.
For our recessional, we had “Bittersweet Symphony” by The Verve, which would also sound awesome on instruments but I think you’d need a violin.
