@DesertchildAZ–we’ve thought about using "Ceremony" by New Order for when I walk up the aisle!  I first heard that song on the Marie Antoinette soundtrack, is that where you did?  Gosh, I love that whole soundtrack.  I am going to put it on right now!

We’re thinking about Crazy Little Thing Called Love by Queen.  But I am up in the air.  There are lots of good ideas on here, thank you all for sharing!

Kara321 – No, I’ve been listening to New Order since the 80s (I’m 38).  But I AM a huge fan of the Marie Antoinette Soundtrack as well.  On another thread, I mentioned that I plan to walk UP the aisle to "Plainsong" by The Cure.  Both happen to be on that soundtrack, but I have been fans of New Order and The Cure since I was in high school.  I think hearing it on the soundtrack and the theme just clinched it for me.  (I’m getting married in Paris, France, in November and will get to visit Versailles as well!)

I mentioned a few other songs to my Fiance that I’d love to incorporate into the wedding but found them to not be quite as appropriate for the occassion (they’re just not churchworthy or I have too many and can only pick x # of songs…nothing wrong with them).  I was kinda bummed that I couldn’t fit them all in and he reminded me that any songs that I wish I could use for the service that I cannot, i can always incorporate into the wedding video.  My man is schmart! LOL!

Star Wars! The classical tune by John Williams when everyone gets metals at the end. My Fiance is kind of a nerd. I think it adds character to the ceremony.

We’re using "You are the Best Thing" by Ray LaMontagne….one of our favorites!  We think it will be a fun way to end the ceremony.

We asked our string quartet to play the instrumental version of "Bittersweet Symphony" by the Verve. Everyone loved it!!

We’re having our string ensemble play our alma mater’s fight song, which was my fiance’s idea. 🙂 We’re huge Michigan fans and getting married on campus, so I think it will be kinda fun.

I think I’ll use "I want to stroll over heaven with you" performed by Alan Jackson. That’s a pretty good song for us and reflects the wedding, although it does have a verse about the rapture I’m not too keen on…
