You would be surprised how many pop/rock songs sound very beautiful and how they can fit a formal event when they wer modified to be purely instrumental (and slowed down). I’m sure some have been adapted for organs. If you have a favorite song or if the two of you have a a special song that won’t be used for the first dance, see if you can find an instrumental version and if it can be done for the organ.

@A Paper Proposal: Eidelweiss is awesome!
Lots of support for Canon in D so let me adjust my question a bit. How are you tackling the timing? It is quite a lengthy piece and it just seems wrong to shorten it…
Also, and you ladies are supportive enough to really help me get “into my own” about everything, I think I’m going to cut out the organist. lol. Don’t know if it’s me and its an electric organ anyways so bleh. 🙂 It was free with my venue fee, so I wonder if they’ll credit me for not using their organist. The venue is wired for surround sound…no one has to know if I make a play list and plug in a ipod (again, our little secret!!).
Now I’m feeling Irish, have you ladies who love Canon in D heard the Irish instrumental version? If not–YOU MUST! 🙂 I’m thinking of that as a processional and then Haste to the Wedding by the Corrs. Technically, the wedding is over but I’ll just call it Haste to the Reception in my head! And it just sounds soo happy.

@babybumblebee: I’m walking in to Trumpet Voluntary as well and am so excited about it! I think it’s an incredibly beautiful piece of music and has quite a regal feel to it. It gives me goosebumps every time I hear it. Can’t wait!
