christin5135: Our wedding quite non-traditional and we’re having a 50s /60s theme so I’m walking down to an instrumental version of here come the sun by the Beatles, I originally wanted an instrumental of Wonderful world by Louis Armstrong but my FI wasn’t in love with it so the bridal party are walking down to that
angelinamarie: OMG!! We are SO on the same page! We are having all Iron and Wine instrumentals for beofre the cermony and our exit and recieving line 🙂 The ceremony music will be 100% acoustic guitar. So excited!
angelinamarie: That’s most likely going to be our first dance song!! Such a beautiful song 🙂
Processional… not sure yet about the one for the bridal party, but FI is trying to decide between making a song for me to walk down the aisle to (his dream; he’s really good at making music, but he’s afraid of the pressure – he already made a song for me that everyone adores, but it’s too slow to walk to, and I think he’s scared of a new song not being as good as that one; obviously I don’t care one bit, I would love anything he makes!) or else he wants to use Andrew Bayer’s “Closing Act” (start about 1.5-2 minutes in).
christin5135: I used one song for all of us (guys didn’t want to do the walk down the aisle thing, so they were already up front). It was 2 bridesmaids and me w/dad.
I used Debussy’s Clair de Lune. Since it’s a long song and I didn’t want anyone to start/stop at the right places, I walked around my living room like it was the aisle to figure out how much song time we would need (DW, and couldn’t get the girls together for a mock rehearsal), guessing the length of the aisle. Then I adjusted the start/stop times in iTunes. It turned out perfect! There were a few extra seconds for us to take some deep breaths and look lovngly into each other’s eyes 😉
christin5135: We are using an acapella medley of somewhere over the rainbow and i’m yours by a band called Straight no Chaser. I love that it’s not too slow, and had a bit of beat to it. Love some of the other bees choices as well!

I sound childish but ours is “Tale as old as time” which a friend of ours is going to use her awesome violin skills to play for us. Really and truly, I would regret not having it and I tried to “settle” on other songs but I just couldn’t do it. I’m happy though.
