When DH and I first got engaged I wanted the bridesmaids to walk down to Pachabel’s Cannon and I was going to walk down to River Flows In You. But then I heard wanted by Hunter Hayes on the radio and I just couldn’t stop crying. I knew it was the song I was going to walk down the aisle to. So I went from wanting something traditional, to wanting something completely different.
My husband’s uncle is a professional classical guitarist and he played our ceremony music. We all walked in to a Milanese march. If you want something different try looking at renaissance era marches, they are literally written as ‘walking in’ music .
Hi! This is my first post – I’m so excited! Anyway – I used Canon for flower girls and ring bearer (didn’t have bridesmaids) and I walked down to Bach’s Arioso. It was gorgeous. This was played on a harp. I knew I wanted Canon because it’s so classic but I also wanted something just a little different for me to walk to.
I had every intention of walking down the aisle to Canon in D as well but then I heard Israel Kamakawiwo’ole’s version of ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’ and its in one of my Fiance and I’s favorite movie, so I decided on that! But I think if you like Canon in D, then go for it! It’s popular for a reason lol
Yep, we used Pachebel’s Canon in D. Classic and beautiful. It was the song my parents got married to as well, and I know they still really treasure that song for that reason, so it was a little surprise for them as we were walking down the aisle.
