There is a song, with my daughter’s first name as the title. She used it for the groom/best man/minister to enter, as well as the whole bridal party and herself, to walk down the aisle. It was written in the early 70s. Everyone love it.

we didn’t have a bridal party, so parents and grandparents walked down to the prelude to Bach’s Cello Suite No. 1.

Then I walked down Doris Troy’s “Just One Look”

Recessional, Stevie Wonder’s Signed, Sealed, Delivered!

I used the same song for both the processional and when I walked.  It was Expressions by Helen Jane long.  I just loved it and it was long enough so why not?

Lol..we are walking in together and I’m surprising him with a guitarist to play and sing “Nothing Else Matters” by Metallica for our processional. 

We weren’t going to have any music (outdoor ceremony/amplified music not allowed) and he is a rocking guitarist. I’m even making him a guitar boutineirre and got guitar cuff links for him (another surprise).

I am also using the same song and version for me and my processional.   There is a part where it gets a little more dramatic in the middle and that is where I will come in.

Yep – I had one unique song played for the whole processional.  Don’t understand why it’s considered so important by some to have a different song for when the bride walks.  I guess it’s a throwback to the old “here comes the bride” days. 

Do what you want.  It will be beautiful 🙂

1234sophia:  I am going to walking in to “Love Walks In” by VanHalen transposed onto piano. It is our song and I know it will be hard to keep a dry eye when I hear it!

We are using the same Sontag and splicing the intrumental version with the lyrics version and I will walk to the lyrical half Of the song.

1234sophia:  I had a very traditional song, so I can’t comment on that aspect (although I love your song choice as DH’s aunt walked down to that same version), but I walked in to the same song as my bridal party, and it worked out perfectly.

I’ve got mine narrowed down to scores from 2 different movies. I’m leaning towards using “Transformation” from Beauty & the Beast, in which case it’d all be one song. It’s very soft at the beginning for the bridesmaids/man, where Beast is dying and Belle confesses her love. My MOH and flower girl would walk when the music is building for Beast’s transformation. My big entrance would be during the crescendo when the Beast finishes transforming into a prince. 😀 (I’m well aware that I’m a dork.)

The second option is 2 pieces from The Little Mermaid, simply b/c they’re both short pieces (about 1:25 each) and we’d need the time. If I go with this option, the bridesmaids/man, MOH, and flower girl would all walk to “Touring the Kingdom,” which is very upbeat and fun, and then I would walk to “Bedtime,” which is very soft and romantic. 🙂

I am doing this!  I love your choice and I might have actually considered it if it hadn’t been played at our friends’ wedding we attended back in July.

I am using an instrumental version of Jason Mraz’s I Won’t Give Up, performed by Tanner Townsend.  I also want to hear the majority of the song played, it crescendo’s near the end, and I think it will be perfect!
