I’m a total nerd and I’m honestly thinking of walking down the aisle to the Terminator theme. My friend’s wedding was last weekend and he entered to the Star Wars theme so I know I’m not alone on this.
Anyone else going this route? Or am I a nut.

One of my bridesmaids sang me down the aisle to “The Way I Am” by Ingrid Michaelson. Not exactly weird but not exactly traditional either. It was perfect 🙂

@bakerella: That is an awesome idea. I love it when friends do stuff like that. I surprised mine by singing their first dance rather than playing the song on a cd. But I love the personal touch what you did has.

I think it depends on the formality of your wedding and if such a quirky song choice fits you as a couple… I’m assumming you’re talking about the original terminator music. It’s a little more ominous than most people might expect, but I think if you use the later part of the song where there are higher notes and the music swells a bit, then that will be better than just starting it at the very beginning (like somewhere around 1:07 on this copy http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=68I3j2luW64 thought I’m not sure I love the clanking noise that starts around 2:47 either). The very end seems like a pretty dramatic entrance 🙂
If it fits your wedding and you both as a couple, then go for it…it’s unusual for sure, but I dont think it’s inappropriate.

@Pwitty:I’m actually thinking the one from the second movie. The softer more orchestral one. I have personally always thought it was a pretty song, it just happens to be from my favorite movie.

I’m walking down the aisle to an accoustic guitar version of a song from one of my favorite video games, so I say GO FOR IT!!! This day is supposed to be all about showcasing you and your Fiance. Do whatever makes y’all happy. Not everyone will get it, but those who do will appreciate it.

I’m walking down to ABBA’s “I Do, I Do, I Do”. Most people remember that as the song “Mariel” walked in to in “Murial’s Wedding”.

@faoiltiama:What song is that? What game?

I think it’s totally fine to enter to a unique song that you love. Once trend I think is great is having a string quartet or acoustic guitarist cover a song that’s usually much different (think heavy metal, video game themes, etc). Then you get to know what it is and have basically an inside joke with the people who “get it,” but all the grandmothers in the audience will have no idea, so they won’t be offended. Just a thought.

I have never seen this is a “real” wedding, but I have loved the concept since I saw The Wedding Singer when they’re playing a string quartet version of Journey I think. I really really want to walk down to a string quartet version of Brown Eyed Girl.

I am walking down to the instrumental interlude for Kanye West’s “All of the Lights”. Fiance picked it out and is geeked since we both LOVE Kanye West annnd I love piano/violin music. Win!

Im not walking down the aisle to a weird song, but i suppose some people might think my bridesmaids are……the beautiful ones…..suede
i thought it was quite fitting…”here they come, the beautiful ones….” but the song is not really a weddingy type song, but its always been my FIs favorite , and it’ll work well when the girls are walking towards the gazebo……

I’m trying to convince my Fiance to walk in with the theme from Star Trek Deep Space Nine. If he doesn’t use it, I might. 🙂
