I am walking down the aisle to Eidelweiss and we are walking out to Ode to Joy.  We are using the piano version.  No vocals.

  • Wedding: July 2013 - The front lawn of our church

mdcmod:  I walked down to the vitamin strings quartet version of “Can’t Help Falling in Love With You.” My real first choice for walking back out is Colby Cailiat “I Do.” I didn’t actually walk out to that because me sister did it a month before my wedding but I think it’s perfect:)

Our wedding is in six weeks, and we’re finally getting around to sorting out the music!

We’re keeping it traditional, I’ll be walking down the aisle to Camille Saint-Saens “The Swan.” I’ve only got two bridesmaids and a flowergirl, so I’m thinking we’ll just use the one piece of music. Then for the signing of the registry, we’re using Bach’s Arioso, and then for our exit…possibly Ode to Joy, or Pachelbel’s Canon in D.

Hello bees,

I have a question and favor to ask. I come from different culture and I am Christian Orthodox, Since my FH is not we can’t get married in the church. However I wanted to have something Georgian in the ceremony. I choose this Georgian gospel song to use for bridal party to walk down the aisle to be point where you hear the bells ringing and then switch it to Ode de Joy. Can you please listen to it and tell me from your point of view if it sounds annoying or to heavy for you. Half of the guests are not going to be Georgian so I do not want to play something that could not be easy on ears for others.

We’re having a DW at a resort in Punta Cana so ceremony is outside in a gazebo and will be short, 15-20mins max.

Bridal party – Flower Duet (Delibes – Lakme)

Bride – If I had the Words by Marshall & Alexander

During the ceremony we’re having a number of our favourite classical pieces playing quietly in the background.

Recessional – FI wants Elvis’ ‘A Little Less Conversation’ so we’ll probably go with that……esp since I got to pick everything else!

We had a violinist and keyboard and no vocals. My bridal party walked down to Canon in D and I walked down to The Prayer, and then we all walked back out to a slow version of All You Need is Love. It was all perfect!

I am not having a bridal party, just my daughter and step daughter to be as flower girls, so we are all using Eidelweiss.  I am having the mothers seated to the Ave Maria.  Before the ceremony, I am using a mix of hymns and contemporary Christian music.   How Great Thou Art, Amazing Grace, Thy Word, El Shaddai, and How He Loves Me.

We are having a ceremony in a church, so I thought Eidelweiss might be stretching it a bit, since it is a secular song, but I think it will be ok.
