We played Queen’s “You’re My Best Friend”.. the first notes started playing right after we kissed and it was pretty awesome!

I was a music major in college and studied opera. We went with the very traditional Mendelssohn “Wedding March” from A Midsummer Night’s Dream. It’s upbeat, but not modern at all lol.

FutureMrsHouy:  We used Alex Boye’s cover of Happy – I don’t know if it worked, but the idea was to have everyone dance their way out of the ceremony and down to the picnic area 🙂 I definitely didn’t hear the music at all (for my entrance, either). We chose the cover of Happy because the chorus is done by a children’s choir and the lyrics are a little clearer.

FutureMrsHouy:  We used In My Life by the Beatles. It’s a happy, upbeat song that people recognize and the lyrics are actually really romantic and appropriate for a wedding. By husband loves the Beatles so it was an easy choice. I also have the lyric “In my life, I love you more” engraved inside his wedding band which he absolutely loves.
