For what part of the ceremony?  We did all non traditional music at our wedding.  I’m religious but Darling Husband isn’t, so we basically went with songs that we just liked. 

Some examples: Taylor Swift’s “Love Story” on piano was used for the GM/MOB/BMs to walk in; a random piano piece I found “Butterfly Waltz” for my entrance; “I See the Light” from Tangled as a duet during our sand ceremony; and our song from our 6 years of dating “Accidentally In Love” by Counting Crows for our recessional.  We just wanted to infuse the ceremony with our personalities as much as possible.

If you’re into Contemporary Christian, my sister had a friend sing “I Will Be Here” by Stephen Curtis Chapman at her wedding and it was so lovely and appropriate.  If you want some other more-traditional music, I suggest going on Amazon and previewing the songs from some Wedding Compilation cds.

Ah, ok.  Of course you would update while I’m in the middle of writing. 🙂  Well, I still give a vote for “I Will Be Here”.  Another one I heard sung at a wedding was “You Raise Me Up” by Josh Groban.  And again if you don’t mind secular music, I also considered “All I Ask of You” from Phantom of the Opera, and “Someone Like You” from the Jekyll and Hyde musical.

Happy hunting!
