If I had it my way, I’d be walking down the aisle to a song my fiance and I both love, but my mom had such a huge overreaction to this that I just give up and do not care. Like really. I do not care I’m over it. I have a string trio I hired that can play just about anything.
She wants very, very classical music played. I am not a huge fan except for Canon in D which I find pretty and I guess maybe I’ll walk down the aisle to this (is this weird? Seems like bridesmaids normally walk down to this). Are there any other songs you can think of that are pretty, “classical” songs….that sound beautiful and not like we’re stepping way back in time lol. I do not like Trumpet Voluntary, or Four Seasons, or the Wedding March. Gag. Help!! lol
I would ask your trio for a list of their classical repertoire. It will slim down your options so you don’t go crazy trying to find a song, and it will be something they’re already familiar with as well. They should be able to provide you with this.
Why is your mom vetoing music you and your fiance both love?
Even if your parents are paying for the wedding, your songs are pretty personalized choices and she shouldn’t be selfish enough to think her own tastes or whoever it is she needs to impress with her idea of poshness supercedes her own daughter’s happiness at her wedding.
