I don’t have any specific songs in mind, but if you’re into video games – look up songs from Zelda. There’s some awesome music in the games!

We used Neville’s Waltz from Harry Potter 4 as the song during signing the wedding certificate

Concerning hobbits is really pretty. It would at least be nice for playing while guests sat down.

We used “sore feet song” from the anime “Mushishi” for our first dance, worked beautifully for us.

kkfirerose:  We used Final Fantasy Symphonic Suite III for the wedding party processional. Subtle and orchestral.

kkfirerose:  we played “Mario Kart Love Song” during our cake cutting. It might be too upbeat for the ceremony though.

We’re using a Minecraft song. Yup, it’s as ridiculous as it sounds and I love the idea of it anyway. We met on a Minecraft server so it seemed appropriate. All the music in the game is instrumental, and outside of people who play it, no one would recognize the music, and anyone who would recognize it knows that’s how we met and probably wouldn’t be that surprised. 

Also, Elder Scrolls games have some really nice pieces as well.

We are planning to use Tale as Old as Time (Beauty & the Beast) instrumental string version as the processional and the Cantina Band Song from Star Wars for the recessional. Neither of these are very subtle though lol. There’s a lot of cool music in Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Zelda that people wouldn’t necessarily recognize.

I’m using lots of music from Homestuck, a couple of the softer Halo 3 pieces (Choose Wisely, and Never Forget), a decent chunk of the Heroes of Might and Magic IV soundtrack (fight me, haters who think 4 wasn’t the best), the Royal London Philharmonic Orchestra version of Can You Feel the Love Tonight and the Disney Fairytale Weddings album, a few softer selections from the Dungeon Siege 1 / Legends of Aranna OST, and the extended version of Aniron by Enya (from LOTR) for background music during cocktail hour, the meal, and when everyone is taking their seats before the ceremony itself. We’re having an enchanted forest theme, so some of the more medieval/magical stuff definitely fits. Also if you like Homestuck the soundtracks are a damn goldmine… take Lotus (Bloom) for example. Pretty sure it’s gonna be my processional. Either that or the Can You Feel the Love Tonight mentioned above.

kkfirerose:  We had a string quartet and the bridal party walked in to Concerning Hobbits, and we walked out to Star Wars Throne Room (I walked down to A Thousand Years by Christina Perri). Not all that subtle but it was a huge hit!

I’m trying to find an instrumental version of Still Alive from Portal for our cake cutting (there’s a running joke about cake in the game).

Lindsey Stirling has done violin versions of a few video games songs now – the Skyrim opening song, the theme from Assassin’s Creed 3, the Zelda melody, and the theme from Dragon Age: Inquisition are all ones I know of off the top of my head.

kkfirerose:  Our first dance song is the Dead Island Trailer theme by Giles Lamb. It’s beautiful, just instrumental, and no one will know it’s from a video game trailer!  Check it out!
