    My processional is to the Canon in D for the family seating/BM entrance, and my entrance is the Bridal Chorus from Lohengrin (Wagner) – the traditional bridal entrance.

    Some one on here listed Romantic Flight from how to train your dragon, it’s really pretty.  My wedding party is walking down to baby love child by pizzicato 5, but we’re huge futurama fans, so it has a special meaning to us.  I’m walking down to Fry’s Holophoner Symphony, which again, is futurama.

    My bridal party walked down the aisle to Arrival of the Queen of Sheba by Handel – that’s another beautiful classical music choice! I walked down the aisle to Canon in D.

    My best advice is to listen to different options and choose whichever triggers the most emotions… I love the classic Canon in D, and it just felt so right for me.

    If you want classical-sounding pop music check out Vitamin String Quartet! A lot of bees have walked down the aisle to their music – they play string quartet arrangements of pop and rock songs.

    Have you hired any musicians, or are you planning to use recordings?

    Definitely talk to the woman you hired and straight up ask if she feels comfortable playing it.  My guess is that if you can provide good sheet music for “A Thousand Years,” she will be just fine.  I’ve downloaded good music from http://www.musicnotes.com in the past.  Just make sure you get a piano ONLY arrangement, not a piano/vocal.

    I must say though, that if you want it to sound like the link you provided, you’re going to be disappointed.  On top of the cello, which is playing the melody, they added percussion instruments to that track.  Basically, you would want to hire a cellist and a percussionist to get that sound.  The upside is that you could probably find some outstanding local high school musicians for cheap!  The music is pretty simple and I’m sure they’d rock it.
