There is a song, with my daughter’s first name as the title. She used it for the groom/best man/minister to enter, as well as the whole bridal party and herself, to walk down the aisle. It was written in the early 70s. Everyone love it.

we didn’t have a bridal party, so parents and grandparents walked down to the prelude to Bach’s Cello Suite No. 1.

Then I walked down Doris Troy’s “Just One Look” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tM_nfDPgcuI

Recessional, Stevie Wonder’s Signed, Sealed, Delivered!

I used the same song for both the processional and when I walked.  It was Expressions by Helen Jane long.  I just loved it and it was long enough so why not?

Lol..we are walking in together and I’m surprising him with a guitarist to play and sing “Nothing Else Matters” by Metallica for our processional. 

We weren’t going to have any music (outdoor ceremony/amplified music not allowed) and he is a rocking guitarist. I’m even making him a guitar boutineirre and got guitar cuff links for him (another surprise).

I am also using the same song and version for me and my processional.   There is a part where it gets a little more dramatic in the middle and that is where I will come in.

Yep – I had one unique song played for the whole processional.  Don’t understand why it’s considered so important by some to have a different song for when the bride walks.  I guess it’s a throwback to the old “here comes the bride” days. 

Do what you want.  It will be beautiful πŸ™‚

1234sophia:  I am going to walking in to “Love Walks In” by VanHalen transposed onto piano. It is our song and I know it will be hard to keep a dry eye when I hear it!

We are using the same Sontag and splicing the intrumental version with the lyrics version and I will walk to the lyrical half Of the song.

1234sophia:  I had a very traditional song, so I can’t comment on that aspect (although I love your song choice as DH’s aunt walked down to that same version), but I walked in to the same song as my bridal party, and it worked out perfectly.

I’ve got mine narrowed down to scores from 2 different movies. I’m leaning towards using “Transformation” from Beauty & the Beast, in which case it’d all be one song. It’s very soft at the beginning for the bridesmaids/man, where Beast is dying and Belle confesses her love. My Maid/Matron of Honor and flower girl would walk when the music is building for Beast’s transformation. My big entrance would be during the crescendo when the Beast finishes transforming into a prince. πŸ˜€ (I’m well aware that I’m a dork.)

The second option is 2 pieces from The Little Mermaid, simply b/c they’re both short pieces (about 1:25 each) and we’d need the time. If I go with this option, the bridesmaids/man, Maid/Matron of Honor, and flower girl would all walk to “Touring the Kingdom,” which is very upbeat and fun, and then I would walk to “Bedtime,” which is very soft and romantic. πŸ™‚

I am doing this!  I love your choice and I might have actually considered it if it hadn’t been played at our friends’ wedding we attended back in July.

I am using an instrumental version of Jason Mraz’s I Won’t Give Up, performed by Tanner Townsend.  I also want to hear the majority of the song played, it crescendo’s near the end, and I think it will be perfect!
