This is my processional….will be performed by amazing musician friends of ours, just a vocalist and an acoustic guitar. I can’t wait!

My dad is walking me down the aisle and my future brother-in-law is playing/singing with the guitar “Walk With You” by Edwin McCain.

Just use that song. She’s single and it’s not like she told you “I love this song, I want to walk down the aisle to it” and then you decided to use it. It sounds like you both independently decided you wanted that song, so it’s not like anyone gets “dibs” on it.

I will probably pay some highschoolers to be a string quartet at my wedding ceremony so that I can walk down the aisle to Zelda’s Lullaby.

@Kimberley25:  OK. OMG. I just listened to this, and a few other versions of the same song and I am SO walking down the aisle to it. I think a lot of my guests will be able to appreciate the song as well which is a nice touch 🙂

You can still use that song  – many people walk down the aisle to songs used by others. It’s not like people are going to sit at her someday wedding and think “wow, I can’t believe X & Y walked down the aisle to the same song.” Asks your guests one week after the wedding and very few will remember what you walked down the aisle to!

I walked to an acoustic version of “Beauty and the Beast.”

I’ve asked our guitarist and violinist to play ‘Ho Hey’ by the Lumineers as my groom, the boys and our family comes down the aisle.

I’m imagining kinda like this:

They are then going to start playing ‘A Thousand Years’ by Christina Perri as my girls and I are walking down the aisle.

Like this:

When I initially met the violinist he was playing me the usual stuff, and I said I wanted something different… he played me the Christina Perri song (before I heard it from Twilight) and I burst into tears. My song. Yup.

We’ve got a classical guitarist and we’re doing “Hey Jude” for the processional. Undecided on if we’ll have a second song or if everyone will walk down to the same one.
