That just came out. Sorry. I’m getting married in a Catholic church too and though I understand why they don’t want non-liturgical music, there are MANY other things that are not allowed which are not religious by nature. One example: attire.

Originally, I wanted to walk down the aisle to Duke Ellington’s In A Sentimental Mood.
But in the end, we decided to hire a flamenco guitarist (a treat for my Spanish mother) and had him play a flamencoey guitar version of Here Comes the Bride. It was very nice.

At end of our vows– Mountain Man wants to sing Im a Believer- the Neil Diamond version, not the Shrek version

I just watched a sample wedding video from my videographer and the wedding was in a catholic church.. They had the piano version of a Shania Twain song and Here Comes the Bride. I’m hopeful that I will have a choice. We’re doing all the other religious stuff they want…

@Mrs.KMM: There is a HUGE restored pipe organ in my church and walking to that song played live is one of the things I am most looking forward to. I can’t wait!

I walked down the aisle to that song although the ceremony was jewish-christian and we stood under a chuppah. We both just liked the melody.

@MapleBecky: The only wedding I went to that had this song was in a Catholic church. I’d definitely contact them first to find out!

I’m going to walk down to the aisle with “Here comes the bride” with a new arrangement by Miranda Wong…so emotional (see it at Youtube)

I just started thread about this a little while ago not knowing there was one:
I was wondering about this too because of this comment:
“The “Bridal Chorus” from Wagner’s opera, Lohengrin, actually accompanies the couple to the bedroom, not the altar!”
My mother told me that this is suppossed to be played after not before…
