I am in love with the song A Thousand Years by Christina Perri to walk down the aisle to. My Maid/Matron of Honor and I were talking about “Breaking Dawn: Part II” the other day and she said “Oh yeah! They played my song during the credits. That’s my song! When I get married someday, I am walking down the aisle to that.!” I was like “Oh. Yeah…I was actually thinking about that too…” And she was like “NO! You can’t, it’s mine!” She is single, as in not dating anyone and hasn’t dated anyone in about 10 years. She also said something similiar when another friend of hers put a deposit down on a hotel she liked for “her wedding”. I really, really am loving that song, and while I do have a back up (instrumental version of the beauty and the beast theme), I could use some advice.

Your friend is being selfish. She’s not even dating anyone!
ON THE OTHER HAND…this kind of may be all she “has”…I’d most likely just let it go, personally, but I don’t know your interactions. Is this the time of things she’d end a friendship over/throw a hissy fit over?

That’s the thing, she is totally a flavor of the week type person. Hunger games came out and she wanted an “May the odds be ever in your favor” tattoo and then two weeks later said “No, I’m not crazy about that series” and is the same way with music most of the time. However, she can be a bit (read: a lot) over dramatic.

- Wedding: September 2013 - B&B
Yeah Im sorry your friend is being kind of ridiculous. Im sure there are plenty of other brides you used that song at their wedding this year!!! It’s not “hers”, she does not “own” it.
That said, I agree with a PP, if you’re not totally stuck on it, maybe use something else so you dont have to hear about it lol 😛 but if you love it use it. If you have to, explain that it means a lot to you and its not stealing her song, lots of people will use it.

She’ll get over it. She isn’t allowed to call dibs on stuff for her fake wedding lol use the song you love!

Use the song you love. By the time, if ever, she gets married, you and her both know they’ll be another song that she loves.

Yeah, that’s probably true. I just think it’s gorgeous, but it probably will become an extremely popular wedding song this year and then be on the level of Love Story by Taylor Swift 3 years ago. I’ll probably just stick with beauty and the beast.

If you have your heart set on it use it… Trust me no one except the bride and groom remember what song was played at the ceremony anyway so if she was to get married in say 2 years and she still wanted it no one would say oh this is the song that @ChelseaLuv Had at her wedding 🙂

LOL. I wouldn’t worry about her imaginary wedding!

Honestly she’ll probably forgot all about it soon enough. If that is really the song you want I don’t see any harm in moving ahead with it.
You don’t get to claim wedding plans when you are single. Yes it is okay to share ideas but nothing is sacred except for dates really.

Tell her you’re using it and that’s that. End of discussion.

ummm how many brides have walked down to the old wedding march song? Tens of thousands! Who gives a rat’s ass if you walk down to the same song? And if you’re getting married first you get first dibs. She can use the same song bc you will have different guests, and those guests who attend both your weddings (whenever her future wedding is) they probably won’t remember it anyway.

Yah, that’s insane. Especially since I went to 4 weddings this year and every bride walked down to that same exact song. I swear it’s becoming more popular than the bridal march…
Just let her know that it’s an extremely popular song and that EVERYONE is doing it nowadays so it’s too late for it to be “her” song.

Whenever she does this, just smile sweetly and compliment her on her excellent taste for liking something that you’ve already chosen.

i would just avoid the subject and play it at the wedding. hopefully by then she will have either moved on from it or won’t care as much.
