I had originally picked out “Only Hope” by Switchfoot/Mandy Moore to enter to, played on the piano. I love the Switchfoot version the best but love the piano in the Mandy Moore song. The Fiance and I were big Switchfoot fans when we met, so that song has always been special to me…
However, the pianist called me last week and told me that the song would sound too “musical box-ish” for a bride to enter to just being played on the piano, and suggested picking another song. I understand her opinion but I’m still bummed haha. I still wanted to use the song so I made it the song for the grandparents/parents. I’m using a christian song called “How Great is Our God” for the bridesmaids which is piano as well…
I am all out of ideas for songs to enter to…I don’t want to do something too cliche, and I’m just sad about Only Hope not working out for my entrance. For the interlude songs we have some old hymns on the piano, and for the exit we are leaving to “All You Need is Love” by the Beatles, maybe the Across the Universe version haha.
What did you pick out for your entrance song, and is it being played on the piano or is it a recording?

I have always loved Pachebel’s Canon in D so that’s what I am planning using for my walk down. We plan on having a trio: piano, violin, and cello.
If I had all the money in the world, I would pay Joshua Radin to play acoustic guitar and play “Today” for me. But alas, we have a wedding budget to stick to! I would use a recording of it but I just don’t think it would have the same feel as being sung live. He sang this at Ellen Degeneres’s wedding. If you haven’t heard it, check it out online. Beautiful song!

I’m sorry but I’m not sure it’s really your pianists job to tell you what songs you should have for your entrance! I’d be telling them to keep their opinion to themselves! I hope you use the song how you want because I don’t think you should have to compromise your original vision because someone tells you otherwise! Go with what you want! I’m walking down the aisle to “God Only Knows” by the Beach Boys and I know some people don’t think its appropriate because of the lyrics but I’m doin’ it anyway!!! LOL Goodluck!
