For a while, I was convinced I would use “Storybook Love” from The Princess Bride for my processional but I’ve found something that’s even more ME. I just don’t know if it might be too weird, which is where you bees come in. You can listen to the song I’m considering here. I plan to trim some of the piano at the beginning so it starts just before the cello begins. What do you think?
Oh, and if you’re curious about the nerdy part… the song is from My Neighbor Totoro, my all-time favorite anime film. 🙂

Really? Nobody wants to listen?

Well, I have no clue about what it’s from (considering you told us ^.^), but it’s absolutely breathtaking =)

I love Totoro! That music brings me BACK! 🙂
I am also loving the intensely adorable bromance between the pianist and the cellist in that video.
In short, that song is gorgeous and amazing and of course you should use it, silly.

I just listened to it — it’s beautiful! Would it be played as you come down the aisle, or would it be your bridesmaids coming down too / first? It does seem a little long to for one person to proceed, so you may want to work on how/where you would end it to make the ending satisfying. About 3 minutes into this piece — there is some erratic / aggressive rhythm that I don’t think would go well with the peaceful feeling most ppl want with their processional, but that’s just me. =]
FYI I’m a violinist and have played in many weddings . . . and I think that having an effective ending that lines up with when the bride arrives at the groom is important. Will you have a live cellist & pianist play, or will you be using a recording that will just fade as you reach the altar?

Dude I’m walking to the Terminator theme. If you like it go with it.

@LondonAmericana: Yeah, I’m a little concerned with the timing and I agree with you about the crazy part around 3 minutes in. I’ll have to play around it with it to figure out what would work best. I’d be using a recording – I’m too poor to hire musicians. 🙂
