I always pictured myself walking to the old Wedding March but now I notice that people are picking regular songs to walk down the aisle. I will be getting married in a small chapel and thought this song fit the traditional-ness of it.
Will I be weird/outdated if I make it my processional music?
If you don’t recall what it sounds like: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lgh9XTkQTDI
Also, side note: is music played while people are getting into the pews and waiting for the ceremony to start?

I am! Mainly because I don’t want to worry about getting music together and our violinist already knew it.

I am doing the traditional bridal march the pianist first language isn’t english so I thought I would stick to the norm so that i don’t confuse her.

If the wedding march is what you want to walk down the aisle to, then by all means do it! : ) I personally am not a fan of the traditional wedding march, so I chose something else, but it could be a nice touch.
And yes, music is typically played pre-ceremony. Traditionally people had string quartets, piano/organ music, etc.

Nope, walking down the aisle to “change the world” by finger eleven

@missdream: I’m not allowed to do that song in my church. It’s not done in Catholic churches due to the fact that the composer is anti-semitic and the pagan elements from the opera it comes from (other bee’s correct me if you have more correct information) There are a couple other bridal marches I’m looking at “Trumpet Voluntary” for one still haven’t decided which song though.
