So we are doing all non traditional music…outside ceremony, small bridal party(2 att. each, no RB or FG). Here’s what I think I decided on:
MOH and BM walk to "When You say Nothing at All"
I walk to "Open Arms" by Journey…we are BIG Journey fans..
Is this TOO untraditional? I’m just not a big "weddingy music" person, it’s all kind of boring.
I had wanted to use something about friends for my attendants to walk to but couldn’t find the right song…anyone else use something like this?

As long as you’re allowed — we’re having a pretty strict church wedding — I think it’s great to have your music be very personal. And untraditional is fine, as long as its a reflection of you and your fiance!

Yeah we are doing an outdoor wedding at a friends house so we have free reign over all our choices and its amazing. I want to use songs that don’t sound like every one wedding.
There is a cute song on The Wedding Singer that is sweet but silly too. I dont want everyone crying at the wedding. Its a celebration!!
For walking back down the aisle, I’m thinking Barry White’s "First, My Last, My Everything". Its fun and more upbeat then the usual.
I’m still trying to decide for the first dance.

I think it’ll be awesome! =) I love lyrical music during ceremonies! (Not having any myself, but that’s only because I fell in love with some instrumental tunes, sigh. Still might try to work in a lyrical one, though….)
The one thing you’ll want to be careful of is that you fade out the music EXPERTLY. Your bridesmaids will have to be that more attuned to the music to be able to make it down the aisle at just the right pace so that it doesn’t look weird if they finish early/late.
^.^ Love the selections, by the way.

I love those song choices. I don’t think it’s too untraditional at all, if it’s right for you & your FI, then it’s perfect, and they’re such romantic songs!

Our music was all uber modern, but played on a violin and a guitar so it sounded traditional. The girls came in to "Sea of No Cares" by Great Big Sea, and I came down to "Bless the Broken Road". They were songs that meant so much to us, but the classical sound meant no worries on what anyone else thought.

You should play whatever music you like and means the most to you both! Our bridal party is walking in to Coldplay- ‘Reign of Love’, and a Neil Young cover of ‘Harvest’ by Rufus Wainwright (they’re both short songs) And I’m walking in to the Beatles’ ‘Here, There, and Everywhere’. We’re walking out to another Beatles song ‘Two of Us’ followed by Queen ‘Crazy Little Thing Called Love’ I think it’ll be fun!
