    @icanhearyousmile:  I’d go with the piano version.  I actually like the song and thing it’s very appropriate, but to be perfectly honest, I would think twilight and that the song is kind of cliche.  But if you did the instrumental, it would take a lot of that away & make it more about the two of you than the movie.

    I used a pretty cliche song; Faithfully, by Journey.  I wasn’t too worried what anyone thought because it’s our song, it’s one of my favorites and it had a lot of meaning to us.  But we had one of the musicians just play it on the piano & he played it so beautifully.  I had a lot of people say it was a really emotional moment for them, so it sounds like it worked!

    I think you shouldn’t worry too much about what anyone else will think, and just what it will mean to you and your husband.  But if you are the least bit concerned, I think instrumental is a great compromise.

    Instrumental version, no doubt. The lyrics make me think of Twilight.

    As long as you and your FI know why this song is meaningful to you, I don’t see why you need to use the version with lyrics for your guests.
