Hi all! Our wedding is in Septenber, so I have time. My first song chmice to walk down the isle was Edwina Hays “Feels Like Home”, but it’s kind of sad. Or makes me sad. Then I thought “a thousand years” cover by piano guys. Now, I’m thinking “Leather and Lace” by Stevie NicKs and Don Henely. I think it describes my future hubby and I. I am like lace, fragile and wear my heart on my sleeve. He is like leather, has walls up until he lets people in…. Until we met and shared our qualities with each other, we even each other out in those ways. He makes me a stronger woman, and I think he has learned to express himself more and not be scared to show his sensitive side. Do you think it’s appropriate to walk down the isle? I think the instrumental version is boring and repeats over and over. Thanks for your input :)… Chosing the right song to walk to is so hard. I’m open to suggestions and recessional songs too. Hugs To you all! Here’s the song, enjoy.

I don’t want to be a jerk, but I can’t think of a nice way to say this. If I were at a wedding where this was the processional, I’m afraid I would be overcome by uncontrollable laughter. I would feel terrible about it, but I would be unable to stop. I’m sorry, but you did ask.

Tbh, I like instrumental songs for processional. The idea of instrumental ” a thousand years ” seems really nice. But, it’s your wedding -if you like the song, go for it. Maybe use the leather and lace song at another place in the wedding maybe, for the song after your first dance?

For the recessional, we had a instrumental arrangement of ” all you need is love” – it wareflectreflect

@cieritaqt: What a beautiful and meaningful song. You’re right that it is an unusual choice for walking down the aisle though. A couple things to consider: how does it work with your bridal party’s processional song? And is your aisle even long enough to play a good portion of the song? What about keeping this one for your first dance? Whatever you choose, I’m sure it will be very special.

@Daisy_Mae: thank you! I think I will use the song but not to walk down the isle, there must be something more appropriate out there. The search continues 🙂
