Fellow Bee’s I need your help! I am having an outdoor wedding and I am looking for ideas for non traditional wedding music. I have heard a few good ones like “Marry Me” by Bruno Mars and “God Bless the Broken Road” by Rascall Flatts but I need more!
If you have used non traditional music for your wedding ceremony what did you use????

Honestly, I’d just say look at your own music collection and listen to the love songs/songs that remind you of your SO and relationship the most and choose from there. If you’re already going “nontraditional”, you may as well make it personal 🙂
We’re having a friend play an acoustic guitar version of “Tell Me What You See” by the Beatles and another is going to play “Something” by The Beatles on the piano.

My bridesmaids came out to the Vitamin String Quartet version of Taylor Swift’s “Love Story”. I loved it.

Our bridal party waled in to the hawaiian version of Somewhere Over the Rainbow. I walked in to Bron Y Aur by Led Zepplin, it’s an accoustic instramental song Physical Graffiti. We had DH’s cousins perform the Luckiest by Ben Folds during the ceremony. And our recessional was All Together Now by the Beatles.
We got a ton of compliments on the music from our guests. People really appreciated how different it was. Especially the older crowd, like my parents friends, which was so funny to us! More importantly though, it totally reflected us, and each song was chosen for a reason and was personal to us.
