I am.  I am walking to John Lennon’s “Grow Old With Me”.

I don’t see why it would be weird. Cute idea!

I think you can walk down to the aisle to any music you want, whether it has lyrics or not.  You should walk to something that means something to you and if you think the Gloria Estefan song does, then go for it!

You can walk down the aisle to anything you want. Lyrics are perfectly acceptable. However, if you are marrying in a church, you will have to follow their restrictions and most only allow religious instrumental music.

Totally! I’m having one of my Bridesmaid or Best Man sing me down the aisle to Ingrid Michaelson’s “The Way I Am”. This is possibly the thing I’m most excited about for our wedding 🙂

My cousin played Lou Reed’s “This Magic Moment” and sang it while we walked down, it didn’t occur to me that lyrics would be strange at all. It was perfect!

I got married in the Catholic church, and when I met with the music director, I requested, “There is None like you,” which is a contemporary Christian piece with lyrics.  He paused, said no one had ever done it, but we could do it.  He played piano, and our friend played guitar and sang it.  It was AWESOME!

You can do whatever you please! You can do cartwheels down the aisle if you want!… but that may be kind of hard in a dress. ッ

I’m walking down the aisle to “God Only Knows” by the Beach Boys which may prove to be a bit of a controversial choice seeing as the opening lyrics are “I may not always love you” LOL… if you listen the the rest of the song it’s super cute, but there may be a few people who are like “Huh?!” 😉

If you love the song and you think it’ll be cute go for it!

It’s your wedding, you can do whatever you want!!  The past several weddings I’ve been to (my own included), the bride has walked down the aisle to a song with lyrics.
