How long is your aisle? Three minutes may not be too short if the song’s just for your walk. We used a 3-minute song for our entire processional, and it was way too long…but we did have a short aisle, and a small number of people walking in.

We used Low Strung’s, Don’t Stop Believing. It’s all instrumental. I simply loved it.

I walked down the aisle to Apocalyptica’s version of Metallica’s Nothing Else Matters.

I walked in to an instrumental version of Elton John’s “Your Song,” which has significance in our relationship (and is conveniently a beautiful instrumental).

I walked in to Here, There, and Everywhere by the Beatles.  Walked out to Got to Get You Into My Life.  My girls walked in to In My Life.  The whole ceremony was Beatles music, which some people might think is weird, but was just completely appropriate for me, and for us.  I say–walk in to something that makes you happy.  Who cares if someone else thinks it’s inappropriate?

I’m walking down to the Vitamin String Quartet’s version of U2’s With or Without You. It’s just beautiful! Plus, my dad and I used to dance together to this song when I was very little, and it’s one of my first memories with him, so it’s also kind of a nod to him. Some guests may or may not be able to pick out the song if they listen close enough, but it’s a special touch I’m doing for me and my dad. You can find it on YouTube if you’d like to listen; even if you don’t like the original song, the strings version is gorgeous.

If I could choose anything it would be “Sweet Child O Mine,” the Vitamin String Quartet version.  Close second would be Queen “You’re My Best Friend.”  Still not sure what we can and can’t do for the ceremony though…

I walked down the aisle to the instrumental version of the theme from the movie The Princess Bride (the song is titled “Storybook Love”).

We walked back up the aisle to God Only Knows by the Beach Boys.
