    @hazyleyedbeauty: We did a Beatles themed ceremony ๐Ÿ™‚

    The DJ played Beatles music leading up to it (we didn’t even ask him to do this, he just did – it worked out perfectly for setting the tone)

    Flower girl and bridal party walked down the aisle to an instrumental version of All You Need is Love (by Vitamin String Quartet)

    I walked down the aisle to Here There and Everywhere, the original by The Beatles.

    Played Something for during the signing and for the big finally (The kiss!), we use the Across the Universe’s (movie) version of All You Need is Love where the song really picks up, so all you heard was ”All you need is love, all you need is love etc etc until we walked out ๐Ÿ™‚

    Later on, we used Here Comes the Sun to announce us as Mr & Mrs Love for the first time ๐Ÿ™‚ !

    @ajillity81:  I would count Here Comes The Bride, Pachebel’s Cannon in D and Trumpet Voluntary as “traditional”.

    I’m walking to Here Comes the Sun, which isn’t traditional, but certainly not super unusual either!

    So I actually was just talking this over with the church and Fiance this weekend:)

    I am going the traditional route with this.  My bridesmaids will walk out to Canon D and I will walk out ot here comes the Bride. 

    The Organist at the church though keeps trying to get me to change my song and walk out to Canon D as well but she said she will make it so people will know the diffrence when I walk out.  My mom regrets being talked out of walking into here comes the bride at her wedding and Fiance gave me a funny look when I told him the whole conversation with the organist.  So Im not sure why she wouldnt want to play that for me but I think Im sticking to my guns on this one and walking out to her comes the bride.

    @hazyleyedbeauty:  We had bagpipes playing traditional music for the processional then as soon as I walked out it switched to an all piano verson of Faithfully by Journey. That may sound a little strange and I’m not sure how it worked out so well, but it’s probably one of my favorite moments of the whole day.  Bagpipes are my husbands heritage and Journey has always been one of our favorite bands.  It was actually one of the first things we bonded on when we met so I felt like it had to hapen :).  

    I think it’s would be pretty to have the trainsong first, but if you want to keep a little traditional music in there, there is something really cool about the shift of style or tone when you walk out.  It sets your entrance aside from all the others.

    I walked down to the traditional bridal march. However, everyone else walked to Train’s Drops of Jupiter with the lyrics.

    The bridal party will be coming in to Vitamin String Quartet’s version of “Can’t help falling in love” which is instrumental if anyone doesn’t know. I’ll be coming into the bridal chorus which is obviously very traditional.

    I’m not going to say what I walked down to as I’m afraid it will catch on or something, & I want to be special lol.

    But the whole bridal party walked to the same song & it did have lyrics.

    It was absolutely beautiful & very sentimental to us, & so far I’m the only person I have ever hear of using it as their wedding walk song.
