    Are you limited to just those two?


    thousand years seems so over done and D just reminds me of this 🙂


    Is is there something meaningful to you that you’d like?


    that said no one will probably pay much attention and both your choices are popular for a reason.

    If you are interested in the music considered suitable in your church, look for the church website or call the church and ask to speak to the organist/pianist/music minister. 

    That person will know what is acceptable in h/h particular church.

    There are literally thousands of pieces that are beautiful and unique for weddings. A little research on your part will take minutes and you will find something TRULY UNIQUE.

    I just heard the most wonderful string quartet version of “all of me” and that will be our first dance song (no dj just the quartet). I think basically any song can be done in a classical, tasteful way if you give the performers enough heads up. 

    My mom had “hallelujah” as hers. It’s such a gorgeous song I cry every time, even though the actual lyrics aren’t exactly wedding themed. 

    What if you just added a string quartet or classical station on pandora and listened until things caught your ear? Or asked the quartets advice- I’m sure they do this often.

    I walked down the aisle to the Lindsey Stirling’s cover of River Flows in you. This version is violin and harp, but would probably sound really nice played by a quartet too 🙂

    We’ve booked a quartet – I’m so excited! Ours ask us to pick songs for the processional, recessional, and a couple for signing the register. Other than that, they tend to play classical pieces for arrival of the guests, and modern music after (they’re sticking around for the drinks reception while we get photos taken). I’m using Spotify to search for string quartets and listening to different songs to get ideas for what I’d like. Your quartet should also have a playlist to choose from which should help.

    I second ellenoir, “All of me” is likely to be on our playlist – the version I’ve heard is beautiful. As is “How long will I love you”. Do you have any sentimental songs for the two of you?

    If your church is strict on songs, I’d start with asking them if they have a list or guidance, then cross-reference that against your quartet’s playlist.

    We’re having a harpist for our ceremony. The bridesmaids will walk down to Canon in D and I will be walking down to A Thousand Years. I know a lot of people use those songs but I really like them so I didn’t see a reason to pick something else. Both would sound beautiful with a quartet! 

    The other songs we’re using are John Legend’s All of Me (signing of registry) and Jason Mraz’s I’m Yours (recessional) with a harpist. I also love a River Runs in You like in a previous comment, we almost went with that.
