I am really, really stumped on this. I had wanted to walk down to “God Only Knows”, but the more I think about the lyrics the more I think it’s not the right fit. At the moment I’m leaning towards “Stand By Me”, but I’m not sold. Perusing Vitamin String Quartet’s website has been no help. I also kind of like “Let’s Stay Together”, but I haven’t found a good instrumental version. This is far more difficult than I anticipated!
What non-traditional song are you walking down the aisle to?

I walked to the Vitamin String Quartet verison of Red Jumpsuit Apparatus – Your Guardian Angel. My husband picked it out and really wanted that to be my song for coming down the aisle, so of course I couldn’t say no.

@rurahrah: Me too! I’m really excited! I love that movie, and the song is cute and sweet. Are you having your BP walk to it too? It’s like 6 minutes so I’ve been going back and forth about it.

I’m torn between figuring out if I want it to be a version of “Passion” by Utada Hikaru, a version of “Rolling Girl” by Akiakane, a version of “Dreamland” by Luka Megurine, or a version of “Kokoro” by Rin Kagamine. They all have really pretty openings that I like and the lyrics are good, too.
I think “Passion” will win out because ever since I got engaged I wanted to walk down the aisle to it… but no guarantees yet.

@Cornflakegirl: I LOVE that movie! I saw the subtitled version in a class in high school and bawled at the end. It comes on TV sometimes but I always only catch the end of it then, too.

@LaCroix: Hikki! Choose Hikki!! LoL I just asked FI the other day if “Goodbye Happiness” could be our recessional song, but we’re sticking with Monkey Majik’s “Sora wa maru de” after all.
At the moment my song will be “Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels)” by the Arcade Fire, but I’ve still got a year so I’m always on the lookout for something that might fit better 🙂
