One of my good friends is doing acoustic guitar at the wedding.  So far, the songs will be Elvis’ “Can’t Help Falling in Love” and the Beatles “All You Need is Love.”  I can’t wait!

It went over VERY well. We had lots of contemporary music playing guitar style and it was so fun! we had an outdoor wedding and it just fit us very well. Not stuffy, not formal, just like “oh that’s pretty” =]

I’m using acoustic guitar only and we’re doing Michael Buble Everything for our recessional and In this Life by the Beatles for our parents to be seated. I think it’s fine plus I’ve realized it’s my wedding and I like it so it goes!!! 😉 Hope this helps! Your wedding will be wonderful it will be you and that’s what’s important.

I agree with DoctorGirl, we are using Vitamin String Quartet.

I went to a wedding a few years ago and all their ceremony music was orchestral versions of Pixies songs. It took a little while to figure it out but sounded awesome and different. It definitely fit the bride and groom.

I was rewatching “The Wedding Singer” the other day and the string quartet at his first wedding (where he gets stood up) plays Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing.” Now I’m jealous.

I want to, but I was rereading the little pamphlet the church sent when we booked, and it says ‘no secular music.’

Bleh. I wonder if we could get away with it…

Fiance and I met because of music, and concert-going has played a large role in our dating life.  My best friend is a musician, so we are using rock music and/or lyrics for our vows/readings/ceremony music.  My friend and I are going to work on the arrangements together.  It’s going to be a very very proper ceremony, but the melodies will be reworked to work with the ceremony atmosphere. 

-Prelude:  ‘All I Need’-Radiohead

-Bridal Processional – ‘You Are My Joy’ – Reindeer Section

-Reading 1 – Part of ‘Right Right Ankle’ – The Decemberists

-Readings 2 +3? TBD

-Musical Interlude ‘Unison’ – Bjork

-Vows – part of the lyrics to Lasse Lindh’s ‘Walk With Me.’ (our song)

-Exit music – ‘I Will Follow You Into the Dark’ – Death Cab for Cutie
