We’re having a civil ceremony and for the entire ceremony we aren’t allowed to reference religion at all! Usually it applies just to readings but depending on the district you’re in that can also mean music! A friend of mine who recently got married wanted to walk in to “Angels” by Robbie Williams (which is about relationships) and they wouldn’t allow it because it could be taken as religious! So I do feel for you. If I think of anything I’ll let you know. 

Check out some work by Strauss and Verdi though. They have some gorgeous pieces.

Ooh, Clair de Lune is beautiful! The Viennese Symphonic Orchestra put out some great CDs of music – they might be a bit fast though, I think it’s mainly waltzes.

@bellenga – Yes, we have a boston – she’s really tiny – about 10 pounds.  Boston terriers are just so cute!
