I am really wanting an acutal song, not just instrumental but, everyone is telling me the instrumental is the way to go. What do y’all think? One versus the other? If you are using a song with words, what song?

I used “Stolen” by Dashboard Confessional (with words). My second choice also had words but was a bit slower than I wanted for my upbeat wedding- “I Will Not Take My Love Away” by Matt Wertz.

I walked to “Here, There and Everywhere” by the Beatles, as played on guitar and sung by one of our closest friends.

Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels) by the Arcade Fire, with words. I know there’s a Vitamin String Orchestra version out there, but I don’t know, I really want the full effect plus vocals! Just because you’re getting a lot of people insisting on instrumental versions doesn’t mean it’s a rule; go with what you like 🙂 It’s not like the music will be playing while your officiant is talking anyway!

Canon in D for me. I want people looking at me, not listening to lyrics.

I am considering an acoustic guitar version of 1000 years…it sounds so pretty!! If you look it up acoustic guitar 1000 years on Youtube, it gives you an idea 🙂

I used Canon in D. But then, I got married in a fairly religious ceremony, and “secular” songs weren’t really appropriate. Dunno – I was just in a wedding where the bride (and all of us) walked down to songs with lyrics and I just wasn’t feeling it.

I really want to use Lady Antebellum “I Run to You”. I’m wondering if it’s too long but I love how it’s upbeat and I love the words.

Instrumental version of The Only Exception by Paramore. It’s “our” song

I am walking down to an instrumental version of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” by the Piano Guys. My bridesmaids will walk to their songs too, Fiance picked them out so I am not sure which one yet.
