My DJ plays acoustic guitar, so he’s going to play the guitar when my father walks me down the aisle. I want something unique, not necessarily serious, and pretty. I hate the traditional wedding march, and don’t really want to go with Canon in D Major unless I absolutely have to.
Does anyone have any ideas of what he could play? He’s going to play “Here Comes The Sun” by the Beatles at the end of the ceremony when we’re walking back up the aisle as husband and wife.

@runsyellowlites: I almost just cried imagining a bride and her dad walking down the aisle to that tune! Awwww. Did your musician sing? I like it best with just the guitar I think.

I’m interested in people’s responses too. We have a cousin playing electric guitar as I walk down the aisle and I am clueless on what I want him to play. (Although the traditional songs do sound awesome on electric guitar)

I have always wanted to walk down the aisle to Dave Matthews Band song titled “#34”. I love the peaceful quality to the beginning of the song (I will be editing the song to loop the soft parts but with an acoustic you can play all the good parts). I love that’s it’s not traditional classical music too. My Fiance plays guitar and loves the idea also! 🙂

What kind of music are you into? I have an acoustic duo playing our ceremony. They’re playing thre pretty, mostly instrumental songs, then Blue Sky for the all the seating/processing, Here Comes the Sun for me, and All You Need is Love with a few stanzas removed at the end.
The songs I asked them to learn (with youtube links…let them play…I think you’ll be surprised by how pretty they are):
Inlaw Josie Wales
Bliss into Billy Breathes
If you like those first three and want to use them, let me know. There’s a website with the guitar tabs so your musician doesn’t have to buy any music. 🙂

I am walking down to Ave Maria. I love the acoustic guitar version of it. It is nice and slow and very romantic. When I first heard my musicians demo it I cried, imagining myself walking down the aisle to it.
